Last night, Jason and I went to see Alegria, Cirque du Soliel's show. Or as Jason insists on calling it, "Circus Ole!"... All I can really say is this: Wow. And, in case I didn't make myself clear: Wow.
I was pretty amazed. The contortionists were unbelievable and there were lots of acts that just blew my mind really. And the fact that it was in Royal Albert Hall made it that much better. RAH is the best theatre in London in my opinion...
And lastly, I must admit that I came a long way in mending my psyche in relation to my fear of clowns. The clowns were actually funny and not just stupid like at the regular circus. And they didn't look totally creepy. I got a little nervous when they came into the crowd because we were right down by the front (ringside as they call it..) but all in all, I found myself actually laughing instead of cringing. And folks, let's just say that's a pretty vast step forward.
