Cirque du Soleil: Dralion

Cirque du Soleil 

When: Aug. 15-19 2012
Price: $28-145

Dralion (prounounced "Drah-lee-on," which sounds like a science fiction film) is the name of this show from internationally acclaimed Cirque du Soleil. A contrast of Eastern and Western philosophies through acrobatics and other marvels, it's scheduled for seven shows at PNC through Aug. 19. Unlike the characters in Knocked Up, we advise against seeing this while on mushrooms. Having recently watched some old episodes of Miami Vice, I'm convinced their judicious use of classic rock and pastels would make an excellent Cirque show, perhaps involving the contrast of synthesizer music against violent gun battles and clouds of cocaine. If they wind up using this idea, I want a kickback. Shows are at 7:30 p.m., with matinees at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18 and 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 19. —Zack Smith
