Cirque Du Soleil Varekai Seattle!
Thursday May 4th my wife and I got to go and see the Cirque Du Soleil show that is currently showing over in Redmond at Marymoor park. First off it was one of the most amazing shows I think Ive ever seen. The set, costumes, choreography, everything about the show was just so amazing. All the acts were so spot on with what they do in there. It really made me want to run away with the circus afterwards too. They really have to enjoy what they get to do day in and day out. The standing ovation they recieved was so moving they came out 3 times I think it was.
I have to thank my wonderful cousin Bridget who works for Cirque Du Soleil who comped us into the show. We had just amazing seats in section 102 row D which was pretty much 4 or 5 rows off the front row. Down below you can pretty much get a view of where we were at. Though we were closer to the middle, right on the aisle.
I hope to catch more of the Cirque shows as they come through Seattle or on up to Vancouver BC if I need to, that show definitely made me a fan for life. If you are in the Seattle area and can afford to go to the show I would definitely suggest picking up tickets. It is so worth every penny. Though I do have to say King county charges $10 to park which is a ripoff just to park at the park, they are totally pulling one over on the people. But they can do it I guess....You need a place to park. Though Id suggest parking in the bizness's close to the park and walk over. We paid the parking since we were comped into the show already...
We had a chance to go into the Tapis Rouge after the show where the cast and crew unwind after the show, but we didnt go in cause we went to pick our kids up instead. Hopefully we get that chance to maybe do that again someday. Next time Ill be staying after for that no matter what...haha
The red section ($185 a seat -- Ouch) there on the right is where we were at, in row D, which you cant see, but it's 4 or 5 up from the front.
Pretty much the view we had from the seats. It was awesome!
