What to say about Cirque that hasn't been said in the last 19 years.
Last night we were treated to the dress rehearsal which they warned the performance could be stopped for fine tuning. But it went off without a hitch.
The evening started off with food and drinks, but just not any food, no, it too was a circus. A circus in your mouth, hitting every spot and doing flips on your tongue.
Can I tell the story about my foot getting stepped on? Good, so my foot gets stepped on an appology is issued and Ms 5chw4r7z starts gabbing with the gentleman, introductions go around. Steve Norris. OK why does that name sound familiar, are his comercials on constant rotation? You know like Steve Norris Hyundai in Florence. No silly Ms 5chw4r7z says later, he's the WCPO weatherman. OK, he's shorter in real life than I thought he'd be.
OVO comprised of nine acts spanning two and half hours including a half hour intermission but it certainly didn't feel that long. Its amazing how far the human body can be pushed.
How long do you think you could do a one handed hand stand.
On a tight rope.
30' above the ground.
And then do a handstand on a unicycle on a tight rope. Because, you know, riding a unicycle normally on a tight rope would just be too easy. I can't even pick what my favorite act was, the ants juggling food and each other with their feet? The butterfly emerging from a cocoon? The trapeze artists or acrobats on the trampoline running straight up walls? The whole thing was my favorite part.
There were no photos allowed in the main tent, which to tell the truth I wasn't that upset with, I would have been snapping pictures like crazy instead of enjoying the show.
Right before the show started Shebar and I decide to make a cupcake run, and while we're picking out some good ones we took just a little too long and got busted by the cupcake gestapo.
Damn! We would have totally got away with it if we hadn't stopped for a minute to talk, I'm blaming it all on Kevin Dugan.
If you've been to a Cirque Du Soleil event before you don't need me telling you to buy tickets, you've undoubtedly already bought them. If you haven't experienced Cirque Du Soleil yet, don't second guess yourself, buy tickets now, you'll thank me. They have a number of different packages including some pamily packs. Get all the OVO information right here.
I want to thank Kristen Humphrey of Hadley Media, Darcy Little of Vehr Communications and Alex Shebar the Cincinnati Yelp Community Manager for hooking me up with an incredible experience and treating us like royalty.[where: 45202]best place to learn how to live downtown cincinnati ohio the ethos of Cincinnati
