Tonight, we had the pleasure of taking the Monsters to Foxwoods. And while they may not be old enough to gamble, we still had an amazing night because Foxwoods offers premiere family entertainment too, like the show we saw: Cirque Éloize: Saloon. The show was, in a word, breathtaking. I was absolutely blown away by the spectacle and pure talent of the entire cast. The show takes place as America is expanding in the wild wild west. The Saloon doors swing open to reveal a colorful cast of individuals, each with a tale to tell.

You get to see love stories unfold before your eyes all to the tune of authentic folk music. The live band was absolutely awesome, but even more amazing was that many of them doubled as acrobats too! I promise you, the stunts in this show are going to leave your jaw on the floor (especially the duel scene which manages to be even more terrifying than a traditional sundown gun faceoff.) The cast got a rousing standing ovation at our performance, and it was well deserved.
If you have never gone to a show at Foxwoods, the Fox Theater has no bad seats. No matter where you are, you will feel like you are part of the saloon. The show plays through the 21st. so get your tickets today!
