BREATHTAKING PERFORMANCE!

Stunning Ice skating, acrobatics, silks, trapeze, music, singing and costuming combined together to bring a truly memorable and world class performance. A must see! We thoroughly enjoyed watching Cirque du Soleil, Axel. The pupeteering was also amazing and truly unique.

AWFUL!

This show had absolutely NO TALENT. If you have ever been to a REAL Cirque Du Soleil show, you’ll be absolutely disappointed after watching AXEL. There is nothing entertaining about it. It’s child’s play.

AXEL

What a wonderful fusion of music skating and acrobatics. World class performers make this a memorable art form.

THEY SHOULD RENAME IT "HOT GARBAGE ON ICE"

This show was a disjointed mess, and absolute disaster. Not one single scene seemed at all related to any other scene. The lead female protagonist fell multiple times while skating, as did the wierd tight pants guy with the lightning shirt. The asian martial arts seemed extremely stereotypical and was completely out of place. They had to stop the show in the second act due to "technical difficulties". Finally, the puppet dog was utterly bizarre that it was just awkward. The lead antagonist was some sort of whimsical Donald Trump character which I thought was poor taste, and apparently his henchmen were extras from G.I. Joe. It was a light crowd anyway, and LOTS of folks left at intermission because it was such a colossal bomb. All that said, the musical performances were okay and the band sounded amazing.

SO HARD TO WATCH....

This show made no sense. I don’t know why there was a martial arts guy in the middle of the show. This part made no sense at all. Many skaters fell. The “light” they were supposedly stealing kept flickering and going out. The show stopped for technical difficulties. I am a huge fan of Cirque but this was a huge flop. I also paid extra for seats close to the floor but with the light boxes and angles, I wasted my money. We moved 10 rows higher up and the seats were much better. This performance really looked like.some sort of dress rehearsal. Can’t believe I wasters $200.

UNFORTUNATELY DISAPPOINTING

Just saw the show 11/3/19, was not what I was expecting, and I am familiar with Cirque du Soleil quality. There was unfortunately no continuity and seemed at times a loss of structure. Not as exciting as it was billed to be.
