My mother had bought tickets and as a 30 year old millennial, I didn’t know what to expect. When I left, I was literally MESMERIZED! This performance screams talent and truly gives the audience and exceptional show! This is MUST for the holiday season and for ALL AGES! I absolutely loved it and to try to describe it would do it a disservice. I hope they return but this time to NYC!

4.0 star rating Gail Piersol from Belleville, IL


The performers gave their all & if this show had been in a nightclub setting or any small intimate venue, it would have been very enjoyable. Whoever booked this show for the Fox Theater did a disservice to the audience & the performers. It is just too big a theater to give the audience a fair chance to enjoy the performances on the small part of the stage that was used. Would go to see the show again if it played somewhere smaller-like The Sheldon or the Focal Point. These people work too hard not to be fully appreciated.

3.0 star rating Nikki from Denver, Colorado


Was somewhat disappointed with the show at the Paramount Theater. Very little acrobatics and it wasn't like the YouTube previews. A bit disappointing.

3.0 star rating Susan from Columbus, OH


The Columbus Ohio show was ok. I was expecting the quality of Cirque Du Soleil and it wasn't. It was a good show, storyline not kid oriented, all around alcohol. The acrobat and juggling performers we're good. The singer was only ok. And the plot and story left allot to be desired. There were times that my grandkids were bored, with songs that weren't fun and upbeat. And not something they knew or understood the adult commentary around. Would I recommend for families NO! I think there is better entertainment for the kids. Would I spend money to see again No!!!

2.0 star rating from Manchester NH


This was nothing compared to what was displayed on videos. I actually considered walking out. No shame on the performers however it was a small production and only a few performers. I honestly felt duped : / this was in Manchester NH

not at all what was described. should not have been called a cirque show. was hard to understand m.c. performances were repetitious. no live orchestra. small scale stage production. pricing too high for performance.

2.0 star rating Samantha Carrington from Rochester, New York


Was excited for this Christmas show but was extremely disappointed. First of all some ticketholders were onstage! What is that about? Secondly the MC was kind of irritating and onstage ALOT! The performers were ok and very talented but this was hyped as a Christmas show and I wasn't feeling it. Very pricey for what was delivered and I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

2.0 star rating Shawna from Los Angeles, California


Don’t get your hopes up very limited just a few preformed. At the Dolby in Hollywood I expected a WOW this was not very disappointed . The advertising is very misleading. I felt like I was watching a indoor street act . Payed way to much for theses tickets!

1.0 star rating Pat from Dallas, Texas


Actors tried hard to provide entertainment Grandkids bored! Canned sound track LOUD Extremely BRIGHT lights in audience eyes Definitely would not recommend for kids

1.0 star rating Tracy elchyshyn from New York, New York


This show was truly awful and a waste of two hours I can never get back. The plot is nothing short of flimsy. Just get rid of it altogether. The bubble blowing was right out of a kids birthday party. The music lacked power. One of the redeeming scenes was with the bicyclist. They simply needed the make it a comedy by playing her bringing out a new wrapped present each time and he had to rise to the challenges. They did that with the little bike, but it would have been better to do it throughout the scene. And finally, labeling this as a “Cirque” Christmas sets a certain level of expectation in talented singers, actors, and performers…this was the D cast of cirque.
