Clever, Cliched

See it if you like Cirque. It needs more acts! They are the best part of the show. Plot is a bit cliched. Dancing and music are charming.

Don't see it if you expect a typical Cirque show. This has more of a plot, but it is cliched. I wanted more acts. The acts they do are quality.
