Okay first I'll apologize for asking this tired question and yes I have read reviews and previous posts but I really would like some current advice.
I'm planning on going next month with a group. We'd like to go to a Cirque show but can't quite decide which one. I thought I was set on seeing "O" but then I read some not so great reviews and we found a good deal on tickets for Mystere. None of us has ever been to a Cirque show before so I suspect no matter which we pick it will be great but I still want to try and make the right choice as I do want to be "blown away" and may not make it to another show. What I heard about "O" that didn't impress me was about a sad or terrible clown act - I HATE clowns and that some parts of the show may be somewhat slow. Since I'm hoping to go to a late show on the night we arrive I was hoping it would be diversion enough to keep me up and later so I could make more of my time. I may feel sleepy already so do I want a show that could be slow and somewhat sleep inducing at points? But I loved the idea of a water element - sounded cool.
I'd like fast paced action, flashy moves and costumes, something of a story line and some comedic moments. I'm not big on traditional acrobatic circus type acts which I find boring after a short while - and as previously stated - clowns do nothing for me.
Any suggestions would be wonderful!
