LUZIA - "That first step is a doozy."
Cirque du Soleil - Chicago
What it's about ... high-flying aerialists, acrobats and tumblers transform a space-age-Mexican-themed landscape filled with flora and fauna, human and otherwise, into a spectacular dream world for a curious fellow whose thirst for beauty and adventure is not quenched by rainwater alone.
Why you should go ... no matter where you are under the white-and-gold Big Top at United Center, you are in the best seat in the house.
Who to watch ... take it all in, but pay particular attention whenever the floor starts to move.
Magnificent moments ... Swing to Swing … an electrifying juggler, Rudolph Janecek … contortionist, Aleksei Goloborodko … the rain!
Good to know … wear drip-dry clothing up front and be prepared for an over-stimulated cactus.
Eat, drink and be merry ... at home or downtown. Limited refreshments onsite.
