Do you believe in magic?


Last night, instead of taking in a full moon movie, we went downtown to see a very special event where the musical genius that was Michael Jackson met the spectacle that is Cirque du Soleil. The two combined to make the evening nothing short of magical.

I'm still enchanted by the two and a half hour show that Fanny and I saw. It was hard to know where to look first. At the band playing Michael's music (some of whom performed with Michael on tour)? The acrobats? The dancers? The pyrotechnic displays? The holographic images of MJ? The many and varied sets or costumes? The show was a feast for the eyes, heart, ears and soul and we had seats a mere seven rows from the stage. There aren't enough adjectives to describe the way this show made me feel. I was happy and sad all in the same moment.


This is one show I think we may need to see twice. I'm thinking Florida in late winter sounds good. Don't miss it if it's coming to an arena near you.

That would indeed be great to see. I have not seen it advertised but I feel pretty sure it will make it to Louisville soon. MJ was a weirdo but even this old lady appreciates the talent he was. A sad story for sure. Have a good week Rudee. Blessings

As I was reading your description, I was thinking that this sounded like something you could go to over and over again. I like it when there's so much detail it needs a few looks to see it all. Glad you had such a great time!
