Coming Attraction: Cirque du Soleil performs at the Grove

What happens in Vegas apparently does not stay in Vegas ... at least when it comes to Cirque du Soleil.

In honor of the company's 25th anniversary, troupes from the six resident alt-circus productions in Sin City are coming to L.A. to show off their elastic moves for free at The Grove on Sun., Aug. 2.

Beginning at 12:30 p.m. and running throughout the day, sample performances from "The Beatles' LOVE," "Mystere," "O," "Zumanity," "KA" and "Criss Angel Believe" will try (and most certainly succeed) to distract wallet-gripping consumers from their guilty buyer's remorse.

In addition to the performances, there will be a circus play area for the kiddos that promises face painting, jugglers and other activities. (If they teach CC to juggle, I will pack her bags for Vegas myself. Actually, I'll be doing that for her soon anyway, since we're heading to the big LV next week. But more on that later.)

And speaking of Vegas, Cirque du Soleil is also offering specially priced tickets through Oct. 31 for select performances on the Strip. Visitors who buy one ticket can purchase an additional ducat for $25. (Call 1-866-998-4830 and mention the code "Summer.")

This only confirms what I've told Ian before about our child and Vegas: If she runs off to join the circus in Sin City, we only have ourselves to blame.
