The show was great. Drinks weren't cheap and my bf got in trouble for taking pictures. lol. Over all very entertaining and a historically acurate portrayal of the 20's Hollywood scene.

So - my friend and I have a fun agreement. No gifts for our birthday.... let's just do something together fun. So off to a Cirque show. I truly loved this very entertaining show. I even bought a souvenir cup at the bar at intermission.

You've gotta take kids to this great show. Their reactions to the stupendous acrobatics is worth the price of admission. They are fascinated and amazed to see humans doing things they've only seen in movies and on TV through special effects.

IRIS was the fifth Cirque du Soleil show we've seen and was enjoyable, but over priced. The Hollywood Blvd area is a colorful area to visit. Safe I'm sure, but be mindful of your surroundings. Not sure if the show is still running.

Although this is another Cirque du Soleil, it was produced well and with some unique concepts. The theme was original and the execution was quite good.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
