Journos Under the Grand Chapiteau

Droves of journalists swarmed National Harbor last night for the media preview of Cirque du Soleil’s traveling spectacle, “Ovo.” Reporters from nearly every Washington news outlet were in attendance to indulge in complimentary pop, popcorn and one of the finest Cirque performances this blogger has ever seen.

Under the grand chapiteau FishbowlDC spotted WaPo’s Vicky Hallet, Michael O’Sullivan and Nelson Pressley, WTOP’s Richard Day, Washington Life’s John Arundel and Michael Clements, Fox 5′s Steve Chenevey (who was also spotted at Lady Gaga on Tuesday), WBJ’s Missy Frederick, Washingtonian’s Sophie Gilbert, CBS Radio’s Guy Lambert, Hot 99.5′s Samy K (also at Gaga on Tues), HuffPo’s Stephanie Green, CNN’s Padma Rama, Pamela’s Punch’s Pamela Sorensen, TBD’s Maura Judkis and the Examiner’s Nikki Schwab.

And these days you can’t shake a stick without hitting a few reality stars. Last night our stick hit Blonde Charity Mafia’s Katherine Kennedy, as well as Real Housewives of DC stars Lynda Erkiletian, Paul Wharton and Ebong Eka (all sans camera).

Cirque’s Ovo runs at National Harbor until October 24, 2010. It truly is a wonderful show and in my humble opinion, a much more robust experience than seeing a performance in Vegas. It’s worth every penny and the pilgrimage to PG County.
