SINGAPORE – Would you pay money to watch a man play with a yo-yo? Or, literally, hands as puppets? Or the infamous mechanical trickery that is a flea circus?
Described thus, I would not be surprised if your reaction were an instinctive “No”. But put these acts under the umbrella branding of Cirque du Soleil, and watch customers happily cough up between $95 and $329 a ticket.
