RETURNING TO ATLANTA FOR DEBUT ENGAGEMENT AT COBB ENERGY PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE – DEC. 30 – JAN. 4
DIRECT FROM BROADWAY, CIRQUE DREAMS Jungle Fantasy has been proclaimed, “The grandest circus spectacle east of Vegas” by New York Magazine. The show, which debuted at the Broadway theatre in June 2008, is the first of its kind ever to perform on the Great White Way. This groundbreaking theatrical, acrobatic and musical adventure was this past summer’s must-see Broadway entertainment sensation for audiences of all ages. CIRQUE DREAMS Jungle Fantasy now soars back into Atlanta as part of the Atlanta Broadway Series 2008-2009 debut season at the Cobb Energy Centre. Performances will run December 30, 2008 – January 4, 2009.
Created and directed by Neil Goldberg, CIRQUE DREAMS Jungle Fantasy is an exotic encounter inspired by nature’s unpredictable creations that are brought to life by an international cast of 25 soaring aerialists, spine-bending contortionists, acrobats, jugglers and musicians. The astounding feats performed in this action packed Cirque Dream are enhanced with over 150 spectacular costumes and set in a fantastical jungle ignited by striking visual effects. From the breathtaking aerial ballet of butterflies to the balancing giraffes, gigantic flowers and trees, this world-class explosion of athleticism, theatre and imagination will exhilarate the entire family.
CIRQUE DREAMS JUNGLE FANTASY is the latest brainchild of Goldberg’s theatrical imagination and Cirque Productions, creators of international performance and touring sensations Cirque Ingenieux, Cirque Dreams Pandemonia, Cirque Dreams Coobrila, Cirque Dreams Illumination and Cirque Dreams Holidaze. Over one million fans throughout the U.S. have attended a Cirque Dreams show in the last year.
“CIRQUE DREAMS JUNGLE FANTASY remains true to my original CIRQUE DREAMS vision which began with the company in 1993 - to blend European artistry with circus and Broadway theatrics in a dramatic fashion that transcends imagination and leaves its narration to the eyes of the beholder,” says Goldberg.
The New York Daily News hails CIRQUE DREAMS JUNGLE FANTASY “Colorful, imaginative and expertly performed…a fantasy worth indulging.” USA Today proclaims it “Dazzling! A fantastical tale of an enchanted jungle”, the Associated Press recommends it as “A family friendly, mind-bending extravagant spectacle” and the L.A. Times “Jaw dropping! A whiz-bang family friendly spectacle.” Critics and audiences alike have praised Cirque Dreams shows as “A circus to blow your circuits” (San Diego Union Tribune), “Executed to perfection.” (Chicago Sun Times) and “Pure talent on a stage. A breath of fresh jungle air” (The New Yorker).
