must trip under the big top: kooza. shar, if you can believe it, has never seen a production by cirque du soleil. it's not that i haven't wanted to, but the means and dough were always a problem i suppose. jen's raved about cirque, having seen 5 productions. i took the plunge and finally got tickets. it sure was worth it. the production was impeccable and the cheese factor was at a minimum. the acts were awe-inspiring and i literally leaned into jen several times out of fright from the death defying feats.
