Cirque du Soleil returns to the Bank of Kentucky Center on the campus of Northern Kentucky University on October 16-19 for six performances of its arena show, Varekai. Paul Bannerman, one of Varekai’s current and original musicians, is on the phone with Lee Hay to provide a preview for this musical-acrobatic-aerobatic-theatrical showcase.

Some transfer, some take a break, and many never return to school.
