Another thing I remember about this production, is how it has, for lack of a better word, de-volved
into this one hour online special we watched. The production of it I saw back in June of 2011, was a 90 minute,
one act version of the original show. And that...
...That has been for me, the best legendary trivia about Cirque I could ever dream up, lol!
For it seems that when ZED first premiered in that theatre, it was
a two act production.
But eventually, it got around to the producers of it, that most of the entire audience (mainly local) was
leaving the building during Intermission! It seems a lot of them had never been to a show that had two acts,
and an intermission...... Who knew?!
So they trimmed it down to what I saw in 2011. 90 min. I had the program along to follow this
online version of it, and know of two acts that didn't appear in this version. And that was okay.
It certainly didn't take away, any of the intensity that I saw there, the other day. Good for them!
Bonus ZED Trivia!
I forgot to mention. The day I saw it, I was in queue to get my tickets. I had an online copy
with the right # on it, in my hand. One of who looked like Security, came up to me, and asked me
if she could see my ticket. One second of a look, and she asked me if I could follow her... please?
What she did, was VIP me to the front of the queue to get into the building, AND get a discount coupon
on merch I bought in their Gift Shop! No drink or snack perks, but that was okay. And then...
....Then, I find out. Not only does a rather large part of the section I am in, devoid of an audience,
(to my right) I am sharing part of my row with seven+ people...all from the 2011 TPR Japan Tour
Apparently, we have all bought tickets for the same night and section, from around the world,
and they put us all together... in the same row.
That was something to enjoy in how random the world works, at times. (Blissing out on FANTASMIC! soundtrack from DisneySea. We saw it in 2013.)
