We Tried This: Review of Cirque du Soleil’s “KA” in Honolulu


Cirque du Soleil

Picture 1 of 8


“KA,” performed at the MGM Grand Hotel since its 2005 premiere, features 80 performers ranging in skills from martial arts to puppetry. As you enter the theater, you’ll find an amazing series of catwalks that not only run along the sides of the theater, but extend over the audience. Your mind begins to race as you begin to wonder what part they’ll play in the performance.


If you are fortunate enough to get seats in the lower part of the theater, you’ll be able to experience the pyrotechnics first hand. From where I sat, I could literally feel the heat from plumes of flame that shot up from the stage area as part of the pre-show.
