2. I wonder how many of my tax dollars were wasted on Cirque du Soleil in Los Angeles:
"Iris" opened in September 2011 at an estimated cost of nearly $100 million in production expenses and theater renovation. When the loan was approved by the council in 2009, the production was expected to run for 10 years. Instead, the show will close in January after just 16 months.3.
