Stage Door: Cirque Dazzles in Northern Ky.

There are tons of choices this weekend if you're looking for onstage entertainment. And there's not a bad choice to be made. But if you want something quite different from the usual theatrical offerings, take I-471 to Northern Kentucky University and see Cirque du Soleil's Alegria, a well-established arena show that's traveled to five continents and been seen by 10 million people.—-

The show, currently on a 40-city tour, is a rare opportunity for residents of Greater Cincinnati to catch Cirque's acclaimed performances at The Bank of Kentucky Center featuring astonishing acrobatics, hilarious clowns, glorious costumes and evocative New Age music (soaring vocals backed by a six-person band playing tunes that blend tango, Klezmer, Jazz and Pop). I saw the opening last night, and it was great fun (even being snowed under by a paper blizzard on the arena floor).

Performances run through Sunday afternoon. Ticket info is here. For more info, click here.
