Cirque du Soleil
through January 21, 2024
They’re back in town, performing again in their Grande Chapiteau downtown at Atlantic Station. If you’ve been a fan of Cirque du Soleil, then you know that the stories are always not quite what you would anticipate, and the acts are far better than any other performance you might watch.
This one is not your usual show. Mukhtar Omar Sharif Mukhtar has written and choreographed this epic show, with a creative team that has brought it to fruition. With a cast of dozens of characters the show is almost totally fully acrobatic. With world-class athletes working every act, and never a safety net in sight, it is a spur to your energy as you try to comprehend how they manage to do this.
The cast come from many different areas of Europe, Africa, Asia and even a few from North America. It’s one that Barnum & Bailey could never have dived into. And the set looks at first like a giant cube. But that’s the exterior and Rubik never could have imagined one like this.
You may have seen many a theatrical production; but you have never see one quite as captivating as this one. Easy to get do, plenty of parking and all seats with a really good view. For a great few hours with the kids, be they from 6 to 106, you’ll love it. For more info and tickets visit their website at cirquedusoleil.com/echo
