I got the chance to get a behind the scenes look at the show that entertained thousands this weekend at Amsoil Arena, 'Cirque du Soleil: Quidam'. The popular show has been seen by millions around the world since it began touring 16 years ago. The show travels with 50 performers and a mix of 50 musicians, crew members and management, so a small village moved into Amsoil Arena for nearly a week, here's what you didn't see if you went to the show this weekend.
