We got some cheap tickets. When we got there, they upgraded our tickets to the orchestra section. It was fun to sit there, since the performers interact with the crowd before the show begins. This show is absolutely amazing! The performers are exceptional.

This was the best Cirque du Soleil show we have seen! Their shows are always amazing, this was truly breath taking! Their talented acrobats who fly around the stage and over the audience have to be seen to be believed.
The Kodak Theater is a wonderful venue and the seats are offset to allow you to look in between the people sitting in front of you.

I'm a cirque du soleil fan and I love this show. This was my sixth show of the cirque and the second best after "O". The show is amazing. TIP: go early and enjoy the artists walking around you and talking to you!

Was very surprised! The use of visuals and lighting were incredible. Theme was perfect for the venue. Music, well what can I say super! My husband and our 2- 12 year old boys truly enjoyed our evening. It is easy to park, eat, browse etc. We ate at Mel's Diner - boys loved the food. Easy walk. There are lots of other places to eat near but my kids heard about the shakes so as it was a special treat for them we went, it worked out fine. A great family evening. Oh and theater is beautiful and cool.

The seats at the top of the theatre are not that great, better to buy a middle point....the cashiers push these seats on the top corners for some reason....
