ALSO VERY DISAPPOINTED
Like others have said ... it's a random string of performances that seemed pulled straight from "America's Got Talent", except that at this point AGT acts do it much better. I feel ripped off in that they clearly are setting the expectation you are seeing a real Cirque de Soleil performance but you are getting the B or C squad at best for the most part. The entire story/plot made almost no sense as did most of the on-stage performers who were not the "main act" in any of the segments.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED!!! TAKE YOUR BINOCULARS!!
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!

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

OVERWHELMING, NOISY, DISAPPOINTING
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.

POOR LIGHTING AND CROWDED STAGE
From seeing other shows at Atlanta’s Fox theater, we thought our center dress circle seats would be great. For Cirque Holidaze...no 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.

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.

NOT LIKE CIRQUE SOLEIL SHOW AT ALL
This wasn’t even close to any Cirque show I have ever seen. It’s basically an America’s got Talent audition. Only a few of the performances reflected the talent of real Cirque shows. And the lead singer was absolutely painful to hear. How can someone with zero ability be chosen with so many talented individuals trying to make it? She must have a major inside track to be on that stage. I would not recommend the venue either. It was so hard to see the stage in the center. We moved to less expensive seats that provided an unobstructed view. If you choose to make yourself miserable seeing this show, go for the cheap seats and you will at least be able to see it.
