It is going to be a good day when my earworm for the morning is music from one of my favorite Cirque du Soleil shows.

(the track for the Russian Bars from Alegria)

It will be a good day.

Looks like we're getting another show this year!

They haven't announced the date yet, but a good guestimation would be sometime in August of this year.

Save your pennies!

Cirque du Soleil is bringing their Arena-ized show Quidam to the Everett Comcast Arena on March 16 through the 20th.

Presale tickets are currently on sale through the club. You only need sign up at the Cirque website to be a club member.

Premium tickets are in the 90's and the next category down is in the 60's. Not unlike most Cirque traveling shows, though to non members, they will be $10 more when they go on sale for the public.

Ok.. better.. for a few minutes anyways.

Busy busy day. Got a few things done that I needed to do this weekend, but forgot a few others, so I'll be scrambling to catch up today.

Lovely lovely weekend though. Friday, I got to see [ profile] thinxtoomuch and enjoyed sushi and the new Resident Evil movie NOT in 3d. :-) Enjoyed it for what it was. Admittedly, I was a little non-plussed by what I sincerely hope was a nod to The Matrix. If it was an attempt to be original, they kinda blew it. Either way, overall, it worked for what it was. Not a great movie in the epic sense, but another good chapter to the story. And really, it was about spending time with my sweetie, so even if the movie had totally sucked, who cares? :-)

Saturday morning was spent building a prop/set piece that I had decided we needed since our run at Portland. We didn't really have room for it in Portland, but in Seattle, we not only have room, but we have necessity, so build it I did, and it looks like it will work well. I also got to see American Rhapsody, which was a really interesting movie about a Hungarian girl reunited with her parents in the United States after a long and somewhat accidental separation when she was a baby when her family was escaping from the communist country in the 50's.

Saturday afternoon, C and I trekked off to Tacoma for a little belated birthday celebration. Cirque, as I mentioned before, was in town, and since it is my favorite show to-date, and C has never seen it, I had to share it with her.

We stayed at the Hotel Murano there in downtown Tacoma. Great reviews of the hotel. And in spite of the crowds (apparently there were 3 weddings, and a "prom"), it was a beautiful place to stay. I opted not to have dinner at the in-house restaurant, and based on breakfast, it was a wise choice.

I guess I've seen enough of Tacoma to remember how dirty and unfriendly it was that I was truly surprised at how nice it has become in that area. We utilized the light rail, and wandered back and forth. I planned ahead and brought umbrellas so we could be leisurely in our strolls.

And a shout out to Galanga for really good Thai food. It isn't a fancy place, but the food is very very good!

Sunday we opted to hit up museums, but only made it to the Washington State History Museum. Was nice to go through it officially. It reminded me of the Albuquerque History Museum back in NM. Nifty stuff for someone like me who didn't grow up with it. And I was really impressed with the sculptor who made the life-size figures.

That afternoon, we headed back home and went into veg mode for a while. Then, as is tradition, I began working on props and sets again. :-) I swear when RoM is over, I'm not gonna know what to do with myself. :-)

Overall, a good weekend.

Hope it was for you all as well!

I know I posted about this long ago when pre-sale tickets were on sale, but I thought I'd remind folks that Cirque is back for another show this year. They are bringing their arena version of Alegria to the Tacoma Dome the 15th through the 19th.

This has thus far been one of my all-time favorites, and I highly recommend it if you can go.

I've been reading reviews from other spots on the tour, and it sounds like their bringing along a few of the familiar cast members.

Yuri Medvedev (, for whose character my icon is based, is back again. His heart-wrenching and yet hilarious performance was one of the highlights for me when I saw Alegria the first time, and I'm thrilled to be sharing it again this time.
