Here are the tour dates and cities through the end of 2008 (dates into 2009 have also been announced):
* 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," according to producers.
"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 is a Broadway first."
This is the latest project of Neil Goldberg's Cirque Productions, creators of international performance and touring sensations Cirque Ingenieux, Cirque Dreams Coobrila and Cirque Dreams Illumination (not to be confused with the shows of Cirque du Soleil).
"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," stated Goldberg.
The Broadway Theatre (recent home to The Color Purple) is located at 1681 Broadway. Tickets are available at www.telecharge.com or via phone at (212) 239-6200 or (800) 432-7250.
