TUESDAY PICK | Cirque du Soleil makes Michael Jackson, for better or worse, “Immortal”


The world’s craziest spectacles tend to glom together as if by gravitational pull: Lindsay Lohan and Terry Richardson, Rupert Murdoch and MySpace, Cirque du Soleil and the Oscars. Given that law of entertainment physics, it was probably inevitable that Cirque would mount a show with a Michael Jackson theme, and that show lands at Target Center for a surprisingly brief two-night run on March 27 and 28. Can dozens of the world’s most talented performers make up for the absence of the man with all the right moves (and several of the wrong ones)? Snap on your sequined love glove, open your wallet, and take a deep breath.
