Time For a New Cirque du Soleil Show at Disney Springs?
For fifteen years and over 6,000 performances the Cirque du Soleil show at Downtown Disney has wowed and wondered all who attend. I’m the first to rave about La Nouba, but enough is enough. How long is this same show in the same spot going to continue? Am I the only one out there who thinks it’s time for a change?
I mean seriously, there is no way with all the crazy stimulation out there in the world that someone is going to relish re-visiting the same venue year after year. The parks are one thing, but a single show that charges $100 plus for a decent seat is bound to be having a hard time wooing repeat clientele.
According to Forbes, Orlando ranks number one on their list of “America’s Most Visited Cities”, way above the number five ranking of Las Vegas. So tell me, why does Vegas have seven plus Cirque shows and Orlando can’t score, at the very least, a new one? Yes, yes, I know that any such show must be family-oriented. But that’s simple enough for a company as talented as Cirque. After all they did a bang up job on La Nouba, and I have no doubt that they will continue to amaze us.
Maybe something more along the lines of Vegas’s popular “Love” show featuring the Beatles but with a Disney twist. What about something based on Walt? Honestly, I can’t send clients who visit Disney year after year to the same Cirque show more than once of twice. Give me something to work with here!
I am a true fan of Cirque - have been since I was young and saw my first show on HBO. As a matter of fact, I just went to a Cirque show here in town this past Saturday (Dralion). My husband and I finally broke down this past Februray and went to see La Nouba, and we were disappointed. This particular show was much too much like a regular circus act and didn’t have the full feel of other Cirque shows.
Sounds like it definitely may be Cirque. I hope so-love their brand of show.
