I'm in Montreal where the Cirque de Soleil was born. It has a permanent spot near the port.
For my birthday (yesterday), my kids gave me front row tickets to the last show of Kooza. Wooohooo!! We saw them down in DisneyWorld in 1999 and I've been dropping hints to the point that the last time we saw an ad, I said, "I want to go there for my birthday."
I've never sat in the front row for any show.
