A man from Buffalo, NY had to cancel his flight with American Airlines when he got sick and  was told that he’d have to pay a $200 change fee.

Cirque du Soleil Paramour on Broadway- A Must See!

Cirque du Soleil Paramour

Kim and I have been fans of Cirque du Soleil for quite some time. We’ve had the chance to see some of their shows like O, Alegria, Ovo, Wintuk and I’m pretty sure one other!

It’s been a bit harder to go to shows in recent years since most of them probably won’t appeal to little kids. The last show that Kim and I saw in a theater was for Lucas. We saw Yo Gabba Gabba a couple of years back! 🙂

I was definitely excited when I got invited to attend a performance of Cirque du Soleil Paramour at the Lyric Theater in NYC. Continue reading Cirque du Soleil Paramour on Broadway- A Must See!
