Cirque du Soleil's Quidam is still touring and if you haven't seen it, GO!

If you're a Cirque du Soleil fan and you like the touring shows, I recommend you check out Quidam.  Quidam was actually the very first Cirque show I'd ever seen (i.e. in 2002 in Cleveland).  I loved it then, and I loved it now. 

I went to Ohio for my mom's birthday, and she wanted to check out Quidam at the Nutter Center.  The Nutter Center is the home court for the Wright State University Raiders and they've been known to host some great talent through the years.  My husband couldn't believe that Whitney Houston played there many years ago, but she did!  I've seen comedians (i.e. Steven Wright), TLC, and the Cirque du Soleil there and having a venue like that "close to home" is a huge asset for people like to get out watch different shows.

If you've ever been to a Cirque show, you know that photography is forbidden so I obviously don't have any images to post.  However, if you're a Cirque fan you really need to go and see this show if/when it comes to your city.  I had no idea that this show was even touring anymore.  Like I said, I'd seen it more than 10 years ago...

In terms of shows and which ones are good, the only Cirque show that I didn't like was Mystere.  If you ask me, that one was lame and simple.  Quidam has everything and I can see why it's still touring.

Actually, the more I think about it I have two pieces of wall art (i.e. shadow boxes) of two acrobats doing incredible poses.  Honestly...  The strength and practice it must take to perform in one of those shows is unreal!  I can't show you a pic from Cirque du Soleil, but I can show you a couple of pictures from when I used to go to trapeze school (i.e. Wirk du Soleil).
