I was recently invited to see the Wintuk show of Cirque Du Soleil at Madison Square Garden. It’s a creative, mystical journey that centers around a boy’s quest to find snow. But I often lost track of the plot line as the stage was taken over by amazingly creative costumes, mesmerizing acrobatics and incredible hoola hooping. My girls (5 and 3) were quite taken by the show and their favorite part was by far the grand finale.
Stop reading right now if you don’t want to hear about the ending. This is a spoiler alert. Just scan down for your discount code.
At the very end of the show, about a gazillion pieces of paper reign down over the audience, giving the illusion of a magical snowstorm. All the children in the audience were bursting with glee. All the adults were so grateful they didn’t have to clean it up. And all the environmentalists in the audience were hoping that the paper gets recycled. I have no idea if it does. But it was quite a breathtaking effect.
My only beef with the whole production is that cotton candy cost $12. Not because it gives you special powers to walk a tightrope but because it comes with a Wintuk jokers hat. Which was very cute but still….
