Cirque du Soleil helped the Santa Monica Pier celebrate its 100th birthday on 9/9/09. Next up for the partying centenarian is "Kooza," Cirque's new show that originated in Montreal.
"Kooza" arrives on October 16th and runs to November 29, 2009. Cirque's website describes "Kooza" as the tale of "The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world" told theatrically employing circus acrobatics and clowning. Adult ticket prices range from $65 to $135 (admission for children 2 - 12 runs from $45.50 to $94.50).
