My company is offering discounted tickets to see the upcoming Cirque Du Soleil show called Delirium. The price per ticket: $93.50
I think I would need to be in a state of delirium to actually even consider spending close to $400 to take my family to go see this show.
I've seen some of these performances on TV, so I really don't think I need to see this one, no matter how new it is. I think I'd equate it with either Kenny G's music, or any hip-hop/rap performers out there today---once you've heard one song, you've heard all they have.
Regarding the Cirque; once you've seen a bunch of Asian human pretzels contort into inhuman positions, and have seen people flying through the air on cables, all while some guy/gal dressed in an LSD inspired outfit is singing opera; well, you've seen all you need to see of their schtick.
My sister-in-law is an accountant for this company in Las Vegas. If we ever make it to Vegas and she can get us comp tickets, I may consider going. In the meantime, if I want to see bizarre acts performed to music, I'll pop in an Enya c.d. and watch my son freak out Mocha-momma with his double jointed thumb and elbow routines.
