As a lover of the cirque, I went with the expectations of seeing a phenomenal performance filled with comedy, suspense, twisted costumes and performers who were easy on the eyes. However, my own suspense was how they could possibly do a Beatles concept and make it cool, or is the Cirque performances becoming more commercialized and "selling out?"
My date who was not a Beatles fan, to say the least, perked up a few times when I started singing familiar Beatles songs he hadn't really heard the lyrics to, and that was fun being able to sing and no one telling you to shut up. Due to the fact, Beatles' songs allow you the freedom to sing their songs and people in general sing right along with you - hooray! The show was filled with high flying action, beautifully crafted scene selections and outrageously fun "gadgets" that blow your mind! The whole time you are debating on whether to watch one set of dancers, or performers, or contraptions. "Lucy in Sky" was by far my favorite because of how that sweet little girl could possibly pull off her performance scene, so beautifully and gracefully, with the most gorgeous, fun-loving smile on her face!
In fact, that's what really made the Beatles "Love" show, the performers enjoyed the Hell out of their performances and took no prisoners by pushing the limits of your eye sockets and making your right brain tingle with excitement! Whether you are a Beatles fan or not, the clever puppet master behind Cirque has done it again and made you relive the Beatles era that never seems to die.
