Having had the absolute pleasure of watching eight Cirque Du Soleil shows over the past six years, I have never shied away from promoting the company. I have also never been so moved that I felt like hijacking the reverse-911 directory just to make sure that no one suffered the tragedy of missing this beautiful, touching, wonder-inspiring show.
That being said, go see Corteo. The latest traveling show features a clown's dream of his own funeral complete with his beloved, ridiculous circus family. In turns tragic, frivolous, inspiring, ridiculous and moving, this show is truly wonderful.
If only for the rare taste of that wonder we all felt as children, this show was BY FAR my favorite Cirque show to date.
Check it out. Love it. Send my thank you cards to eBoost.
