last week’s date night at Cirque du Soleil was quite an adventure! ryan and i had to rush through dinner, but luckily the pop-up restaurant Hudson North made it possible to get in a quick bite, a few drinks, and a couple pics before showtime. the performance was nothing shy of mind blowing. Cirque du Soleil specializes in the unbelievable, so of course the acrobatic stunts from the synchronized routines on the high bar to the high flying trapeze acts were indescribably good. get this, each act has its own live music that the performance hinges on being flawless, for the sake of the performers, and they did not disappoint. the story line was really enjoyable plus, the added humor and skits had us in stitches and they didn’t even speak! Cirque du Soleil is a good time, a solid date night, and there’s not a bad seat in the….TENT!
now playing til December 31st
Hudson North: there’s only 21 days left for this lil pop-up so visit quick! 19th Street W District Ave, near the movie theater in Atlantic Station-just a heads up: food is slightly spicier than listed, but the mason jar desserts are DELIGHTFUL!
post-show we were given a backstage glimpse into what goes into the Cirque du Soleil costumes, stage setup, the performers’ exercise schedule, life on the road, and so much more I didn’t capture!
