Cirque Du Soleil: No Scary Clowns!
By Jaime Travis
As we were making our way to the great circus tent that had risen up high over the Pepsi Center parking lot, I did my best to convince our 8 year old son, Jack, that no run of the mill "scary or creepy clowns" (my apologies to the clown lovers in the crowd) would be allowed to traipse unencumbered amongst the crowd. I did, however, neglect to mention to him that there would in fact be- a whole lot of French-Canadian acrobats decked out in their Steampunk finest- twisting and contorting in only the way a Cirque du Soleil performer can do. Added up, it promised to be a winning afternoon!
