For those of you who may have seen the billboards around town and wondered aloud, wasnt Cirque du Soleil here like a month ago?, heres the good news: youre not crazy. The arguably most famous avant-garde acrobatic troupe just completed a run in downtown Miami, cest vrai. And now a slightly similar Cirque is here to delight audiences with flights of fancy and displays of lithe athleticism. Neil Goldbergs Cirque Dreams: Jungle Fantasy promises a lavish production, astounding acrobatics, and according to a review by the Washington Post, a stage set reminiscent of a fevered dreamscape that suggests The Lion King on magic mushrooms. Sounds like our weekend plans have just been made!
Cirque Dreams: Jungle Fantasy promises to thrill little ones, parents who accompany little ones, and stoned adults alike. The kids will go crazy at the menagerie on stage spoiler alert, theres a unicorn! Moms can gawk at the high flying eye candy the show is all about shirtless gymnasts sailing through the air. And to the stoners, we have six words. Glow in the dark costumes, dude.
Cirque Dreams will rock the Seminole Hard Rock, found at 1 Seminole Way in Hollywood through Sunday. Tickets cost $35 to $65. Call 305-358-5885, or visit seminolehardrock.com.
