    Saw the "restaged" Zarkana, my impressions were:

    1. They took out the juggler - bad, I really liked her.
    2. They made it "lighter", I'm on the fence about this, It was happier, which might appeal more to children
    3. The twins - good
    4. The trapeze artists tried 3 times to make one of the flips, and received a round of applause when they finally got it.
    5. the sand sculptress was still there and fantastic

    I've only seen Ka' and Zarkana, and each of them multiple times. If you want a Cirque du Soleil show, you can't go wrong with either of these.

    Sweet!
    I loved seeing that act after seeing it in that HBO documentary. I had no idea they were in Vegas!

    That was quite good. I was paying attention to how she cued the guys that she was ready to jump. I didn't see her lips move, but I did see her toe tip each time she was ready. I'm guessing that the back guy saw this and started to dip and the front guy recognized the dip.

    Also went to see the "new" Zarkana this weekend.

    I LOVE that they re-scored the show, musically! Definitely more rock driven, less operatic.
