Cirque Du Soleil

I know most of you have been in a circus and witnessed their spectacular performances. You have seen amazing jugglers, unicyclists, funny clowns, heart-breaking acrobats, trapezes and magicians and contortionist. How about a musical-drama play like Miss Saigon? I’m sure you are pretty amazed with their talents and how they were able to deliver their scripts and how they give justice to their characters. How about vaudeville? This one-of –a-kind theatrical presentation will surely entertain you with the variety of performances they have.
How if we combined those three? What can we get? A “Cirque du Soleil.” It’s not just an ordinary musical play or a very entertaining vaudeville; it’s more than any other circus because it’s a dramatic mix of arts and entertainment.

Cirque du Soleil is internationally known for their unique, stunning and very entertaining performances. Each of their show has its own central theme and storyline. They have made several popular shows like “Quidam” and “Varekai.” Cirque du Soleil is also known for giving exciting twists in almost all of their shows. They even give a new twist on vaudeville in one of their greatest show called “Banana Shpeel.”
Banana Shpeel is a roller-coaster mix of styles that blends comedy with tap, hip hop, eccentric dance and slapstick, all linked by a hilarious narrative that ignites a succession of wacky adventures. The story revolves around Emmett, an innocent and romantic actor who went to audition for a very cruel and irritable producer named Shmelky. Emmett soon finds himself trapped in a flamboyant, anarchic world where Shmelky sows terror and reigns supreme. Emmett falls in love with the beautiful Katie and meets a bunch of absurd characters, including the strange Banana Man. Who’s this Banana Man and what is his role in Emmett’s life? Will they be friends or enemies? Maybe this mysterious character will help out Emmett to escape the clutches of Shmelky.

The only way to find out the answer to this mysterious question is to watch the actual Banana Spheel show. If you are interested about the Banana Spheel Show and want to know more about the Cirque du Soleil, just visit them here.
