You Don't See That Every Morning in Boston

So this morning as I emerged from the Copley Square T stop on my way to work, I found myself walking through a group of people dressed all in white and orange, holding streamers, and in some cases wearing clown noses.

It turned out to be the Cirque du Soleil, promoting their show Kooza, which is opening today in Boston at the Bayside Expo Center. One of the performers gave me a flyer and a CD-ROM about the show, and told me that they'll be wandering around Boston all day. So look around; maybe you'll spot them.

(I have to admit that I had odd feelings about posting this. On the one hand, it seems like I've been sucked into helping them with their marketing. On the other hand, they did entertain me this morning, and the dancer above was willing to pose for the picture, so I figure they deserve whatever extra publicity I could give them.)


And honestly, this is the kind of positive marketing we could use more of, in place of spam and telemarketing and endless solicitations every time you turn around.
We've got tickets in a couple of weeks, which I'm very excited about. I've never been to Cirque before. :)
Cirque is a real treat. The performers are on par with any world-class athlete.

And the clowns are always good, more in the European tradition. Usually the clowns are my favorite part because they always have a story to tell.
Any idea where else they will be "marketing"? They're quite welcome to come to my neighborhood.
No idea where they went, although my guess was that they ended up in the Common.
