While Ringling is closing, (last performances are in early May in NY and Providence, RI) I just got word that tickets for two circuses in Chicago are apparently going gangbusters.

Cavalia's Odysseo (the horse circus that I have raved about) is getting extended an additional week. It now closes April 30.  You should definitely see this show.  I saw it and it was fantastic.

Find out more about Odysseo on my blog.

The other circus that got extended hasn't even arrived yet!

Cirque du Soleil has a show that is coming in June called Luzia which is Mexico inspired, and ticket sales must be good- they are planning on being here for most of the summer! It will now run July 21-Sept 3. It will perform in the parking lot of the United Center

Here's a little bit more about Luzia, from their recent press release.

Through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA takes audiences on a surrealistic journey filled with wonders, playfulness and striking artistry. Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.
