I was recently invited to see Cirque du Soleil’s new show, Zarkana.
Walking into Radio City Music Hall, the show had already begun! Characters were running around the lobby engaging with everyone as we walked into the theater. Soldiers and dancers with hula hoops were teasing us, jumping into photos and being althogther entertaining which in my opinion was a great way to start the show.
The stunts were pretty breathtaking and the cast was full of energy.
On the show’s website, its described as The story follows Zark, a magician who has lost his powers – and the love of his life – in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. He runs into the Mutants, four sirens as sinister as they are fabulous, who are determined to divert him from his quest. Maybe I was too enthralled with the talented cast, but I didn’t really follow the story line. That said, I really enjoyed the show and if you’re in NYC I think you’d have a good time checking it out.
Just make sure you get there 15-20 minutes early so that you can interact with the cast.
