5.0 star rating Pam Jensen from Seattle, Washington


My son and I absolutely loved it. It was spectacular. I especially liked the O’Holy Nighr rendition . I would definitely go again next year! This is a great show for the whole family. It’s like America’s Got Talent on steroids!

5.0 star rating Cecilia Fusco from Providence, Rhode Island

5.0 star rating Kj from Detroit, Michigan


Awesome awesome show. My children were mesmerized by the performances.

5.0 star rating Brian Snowgold from Howell, Michigan


My wife and I enjoyed every minute of the performance. We would see this again with no regrets. We went as a couple but our son(9) would've loved it, as well our parents. I don't believe any seat would've been a bad one. If you don't know the area, leave early and there is usually a parking fee- about 15.00. which is well worth it.

5.0 star rating Karen E. D. Thompson from Newark, Delaware


Excellent show! DuPonti Theatre was a perfect setting for a perfect performance! Hope they will perform again here at the DuPont Theatre!

5.0 star rating T. Duke-Pakus from Boston, Massachusetts


It was totally spectacular - the singing was INCREDIBLE! Singing at Cirque? YES! Amanda Higgins rendition of Oh Holy Night was unbelievable! I had an amazing time! I want to go back!

3.0 star rating J from New Brunswick, New Jersey


I really would have enjoyed the show more if it wasn't so loud. I spent almost all of the first half putting my finger in my ear. It was so distracting. The second half didn't seem as bad. Otherwise, if you like acrobatics, you will enjoy this Christmas show. Costumes, set, and entertainers were amazing! Our daughter enjoyed, but she also had her fingers in her ears alot. Its a shame, it would be so much more enjoyable if it wasn't so loud .

2.5 star rating Lizzy from Austin, Texas


When I bought the tickets I thought I'd be able tip actually see the show properly. Instead the show is on a small stage about 50 yards away from the seats. Well of course, unless you purchase the expensive seats then you're closer and can see everything up close. What a rip off! The Cedar park center could have made the stage further into the middle of the center and not be greedy to overcharge for floor seats I'm sure!! I was completely disappointed with this whole thing. I felt like we were in a kids play but just sitting a mile away squinting to see the show. The artist were good and the acts were pretty awesome but I rather pay for the real Cirque instead and be able to actually see the show! Blah!

2.0 star rating Derek from Nashville, Tennessee


Really disappointing show, we left midway through the second part. This show summed up in a word in my opinion is noisy. It's noisy visually. The set is very distracting, and whenever there is a main act on the stage, there are tons of people and set pieces randomly walking around in the background that add nothing to the show. It's definitely audibly noisy. The music is absolutely blaring and SO repetitive. Repetitive during the show, and then before and during intermission they play the same 2 minute loop of music on repeat. The music during the show is chaotic and overwhelming. There are very few changes to the music, it has the same beat through most of the show and just beats you down over time. There were many mistakes made in the acts, many more than I've seen at other shows. The juggler dropped his items three times, the jump rope guys made multiple mistakes, the roller skaters fell. There was no continuity or explanation for anything. It was a series of circus acts.

This is more of a circus act than a holiday show. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed.

1.0 star rating CHarley from Atlanta, Georgia


There was no Story behind the show. 2 hours of performers taking turns to show their talent show. Very talented performers but The show needs a story. I felt like it was a talent show.. The worst part of the show was the singing and sound. I couldn't tell if it were the jitters or the sound but IF you could understand what they were singing it was patchy and not very good. There were 3 singers with not much of a role to do anything else so they should have blown the crowd away. This show would be great but needs directing and something needs to be done about the songs. We had our 3 year old with us who couldn't get into it.. She passed out after intermission. I wouldn't recommend this show to really anyone.

4.0 star rating Michelle from Sarasota, Florida


1. The acoustics are worse than ever, you cannot understand one word in the songs. 2. The chosen Christmas songs seemed odd for the performance. When they sang you saw their mouths moving and the sounds coming from the ceiling. It was just horrible. 3.The performance of the actors were good, short in length, not a tru circ performance if thats what you are thinking. Its the costumes, color that made it. Unfortunately the Van Wezel is not a place for Broadway, Tony Bennett, or Holiday shows because the theater is old. It says doors open 1-hr. before the show starts. NOT. it was 25min. before it started and it started late.

2.0 star rating Ellen from Atlanta, Georgia


From seeing other shows at Atlanta’s Fox theater, we thought our center dress circle seats would be great. For Cirque way! The lighting was poor, creating large dark spots on the stage. Even the feature performers could not be seen clearly. Music was...”meh” and choreography felt stiff and amateurish it felt like there were too many props and performers packed onto the stage, restricting movement of the performers. We had hoped this would be a magical kick off to the holiday season. It was not. It was frustrating to watch. We left at intermission.

3.0 star rating Rooney from Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Maybe I'm spoiled, but the show wasn't that impressive...

2.0 star rating Michigan Theatre Goer from Detroit, Michigan


The production company allows patrons to be admitted into the theatre up to 12 minutes after the performance. The Detroit venue was still seating people 20 minutes into the show, so if you show up on time as expected, you will miss the first 20 minutes of the show with the late patrons standing in the aisles, talking, using I phone lights and generally blocking your view. There were at least 100 people that came in late. We sat behind a millennial couple that talked, texted, vaped, took selfies with flash, and recorded the show and kissed throughout the show after coming in 10 minutes late from intermission. The show was pretty good ( the parts we saw) but it was disappointing to spend so much money to deal with rude patrons that the venue does nothing about. Apparently once you spend the money on a ticket, they don’t care what kind of experience you have. I wouldn’t recommend this show.

3.0 star rating JH from Denver, Colorado


very poor space for these talented performers. Ceiling is too low for aerials, acoustics poor, 4 large structural supports block viewing, and floor seating in chairs. For $100 per ticket I would expect stadium seating so you can see over the person in front of you. And definitely NOT a Cirque du Soleil performance.

1.0 star rating Jonas from Denver, Colorado


This was such a horrible production. The acrobatic were on the level of your average street performers, the costumes looked like they had been slapped together from whatever could be salvaged from the clearance bin at Hobby Lobby, the music and as hackneyed and the lyrics unintelligible. There was no story or even thematic consistency during each at. It was all over the place. The cowboy dude...seriously what was that about?? It was like glorified pole dancing. So tacky. I actually lol’ed at that. Don’t waste your money.
