The following is taken from the Cirque Website and written by a person known as CA Acrobat.
Sounds like there have been a few problems with the choreography as they have sacked the choreographer - Bonnie Story. As an update 'Blue Suede Shoes' remains in the show but has been changed.
Saw the dress rehearsal Monday night (7th). First off it needs work, hence the dress rehearsal, and the previews to come. It is far from perfect as always with cirque shows.
A lot of things need to be explained to understand them, like how there is a huge guitar rig with two males inside, swinging around, is supposed to be elvis and his twin who didnt live. its a very cool act though, one of my favorites. Also the tramp wall act is all super heros, because he was very inspired and loved super heros, yet nobody ever explains this to you. On the note of tramp wall, it is the BEST trampoline act out there and it will blow everyones mind, very high caliber, very intense. It combines the v tramp from Mystere, two wall tramps like La Nouba, and transfers like Love. It's insane.
All the dance numbers were poor but they will not be there for long due to all choreo changing. Blue suede shoes was cut by GUY because he didnt understand it.
The Jailhouse scene was cool but it as well will be redone, but just imagine a jailhouse where every wall is walked on and people flipping around.
All the high intensity acts are in the beginning, and it dies out until the stripper pole act which is very nice and artistic.
The wedding rings were cool, its like a duo hoop act but on hanging german wheels.
High bar act was ok, I expected more, but its a nice act.
All in all the show is going to change a lot from now till opening. Go see it, its worth it for sure.

I care more about how music was updated and what songs were used-I hope its mix of well known and lesser known songs-I know visual has to be spectacular too but I,m hoping music gets thumbs up from critics and fans
