These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Since this show's success, Japan has been one of Cirque's biggest markets beyond North America, eventually getting a resident show (ZED) in 2008.
Recycled Script: The premise and most of the acts; justified in that neither Reinvente or Nouvelle visited Japan. Bear in mind that the company was much smaller in '92 and the all-new Saltimbanco had launched in North America the month before this show opened.
Values Dissonance: Adjusting to the different ways Japanese audiences respond to live performances was a major challenge for the cast of this show.
