@Cirque WOWS again with TOTEM

I cannot let today go by without a mention of last night's fun times with @inthekitchenKP.

I drove into the city from the 'burbs when it was already dark -
No kiddo.
No husband.
... exciting stuff!

KP and I met in the parking deck and headed over to the "big top". Really! At this very moment, there is a massive blue and yellow tent in the middle of Atlanta. We got our large popcorn and sodas and waited anxiously for the doors to open. The tent is cozy and because it is round, no seat is a bad one.

The show began around 8:05 p.m. For the next couple hours, it was non-stop WOW.

"Wow" -- wondering if the native Indian costume was a leotard, or if this dancing well-built man was actually in the flesh.

"Wow" --  amazed by the colorful animal costumes (I especially loved the poison dart frogs).

"Wow" -- floored by the seemingly unreal amazing abs on the lady in the pink sparkly "swimwear"

 "Wow" -- watching the adorable ladies on tall unicycles, throwing bowls with their feet - and catching them elsewhere.

"Wow" -- captivated by the beauty of the glowing couple in yellow, flipping and flying on a trapeze.

Wow to the creativity. Wow to the storyline. Wow to the engrossing live music. Wow to numerous tricks, death-defying stunts, and a few funny antics. The popcorn was good too - extra tasty and salty. I'll think I'll even give my snack a "wow".

This was not my first Cirque de Soleil experience. I have seen many shows both touring and permanent in Las Vegas and Orlando. All are good. All have me on the edge of my seat. I always wonder if the next one will be a letdown, since I have seen so many. Not this time!

If you are in the Atlanta area, check out TOTEM. On Facebook: or on Twitter, #TOTEM (@cirque). You have plenty of time to grab your seat; TOTEM is playing through December 30th. 

Not in Atlanta? No worries! TOTEM heads to Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and Ottawa in 2013. I know you will be saying "WOW" as well. Two thumbs up!

My lovely blogger friend was provided two complimentary tickets to the show. 
I was lucky enough to tag along. All opinions are 100% mine.
