    It almost makes you nostalgic for the bad old days when carnies were carnies -- the sawdust-smelling, animal-exploiting, itinerant tent trash who’d never dream of signing up for mime school or an interpretive dance class. The circus as high-tech, new age musical spectacular is now so ubiquitous it’s hard not to glaze over at the pyramids of rubber-spined contortionists, the human wheels or rippling towers of handstanding beefcake. But audiences still eager to “ooh” and “aah” at those sights can get their fill of luridly costumed acrobatics in “Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy,” playing a 10-week summer engagement at the Broadway Theater.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF cirque dreams: jungle fantasy

    Despite what you might be thinking, Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy doesn't come to us from the Cirque du Soleil folks; it emanates from Fort Lauderdale-based Cirque Productions. But artistic director Neil Goldberg -- who created and directed this long-touring show and has now carted it to Broadway -- clearly knows the ins-and-outs of the formula: Connect a series of circus acts with a loose theme that allows set and costume designers to go to town.
