    its a good intro to Cirque, but with the tiny space in the Kodak, its not nearly as impressive as some of the other shows. But since the Kodak IS tiny there isnt a bad seat in the house

    For Academy Awards buffs, know that the theater is “dressed” for the Oscars, so if you don’t visit during “Awards Season,” the theater might look different from what you’ve seen on TV. Read more · October 7, 2011

    Not as impressive as the other cirques. Some acts felt like they were just throw together. The guys dressed as bees were awesome though.
