Does anyone know what this is acually about?

Apart from being a circus act??

Anyone seen it ?

If so any good? How long does it last for? 1 hour or 2?

Also it's at the Royal Albert Halls so what the best overall value tickets?

    Tv program? BBC? Paul Merton?

    Argue for things you hate to go in there.

    The idea is from George Orwell's 1984. Room 101 was a room that contained your fears.

    OK, I know in America 101 is like a beginners class, like drive Education 101, french 101, so was thinking along those lines.

    Well I just saw my online DVD rental thingy has a DVD of the circus thing so might just watch that first and see if it looks any good before shelling out for a ticket!!

    Where on earth do you live?

    I've been to see it live, twice.

    I've seen it a couple of times and its brill! First one was really emotional and constantly had your attention. The second one was really funny with clowns doing what they do best!

    Is that the one with nekkid people in it? Becuase I've seen some class of a circus spectale with a French name years ago, and there were penises and fangitas involved.

    Was great :thumb:.

    Clowns are always deeply wrong, there is something just evil about prancing about in large trousers and wearing make up.

    How many hours does it last for, stall tickets are cheap at £15 but can't imagine standing through a show if it's long.

    Never been to the royal albert hall, are the middle price range seats any good?

    So I take it the whole thing is more jugglers, and acrobats??

    Depends which one you go to see. Alegria was incredible, the other 2 I went to see I was quite disappointed by...

    I saw it in Disney World and it was absolutely awesome, like nothing i had ever seen before! You should go just for the experience. I dont know which one this one was, but it was great.

    There was lots going on at once and it was visually stunning. Its not like a normal circus, its mainly acrobats, but its really well done....ooh...i dont really know how to describe it, you really need to see it :thumb:
