LA SOIREE OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: November 7, 2013
Synopsis: The sexy, funny and dangerous world of La Soirée combines cabaret, new burlesque, circus sideshow and contemporary variety in one seductive setting. The show features a rotating cast of over 20 artists, with the acts varying from night to night. La Soirée brings the flashiness of vaudeville salons straight into the 21st century with ringside seats, bar service and posh tables.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"People have various and peculiar tastes in the arts, I know. (“Duck Dynasty”: please explain.) But is there anyone out there who has been hankering to watch a man clad head-to-toe in black leather, with a painted-on Groucho mustache, lip-syncing to a Queen song while juggling? "
"If Cirque du Soleil is feeling increasingly creaky and kiddie-friendly these days, then the wild, wacky, and deliriously wonderful La Soirée is an effective antidote for circus ennui that serves thrill-seeking audiences of decidedly more adult tastes."
"Magic is soooooo much more impressive when performed in the nude. (There's practically nowhere to hide anything.) This is one of the many revelations in La Soirée, the sexy, silly, downright spectacular adult circus now inhabiting The Union Square Theatre. Having toured the world (London, Sydney, Paris), La Soirée now lands in New York for a limited time. Cabaret and burlesque fans might recognize some of the acts from the show's earlier incarnation, Absinthe . Several of these acts have appeared under the banner of La Clique, a perennial favorite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This new and improved show has everything: aerial tricks, amazing feats of strength, and lots of laughs."
"Spice is the life of variety in the delectable La Soirée, a saucy revue that punches up neocircus, comedy, burlesque and cabaret with generous dashes of hot pepper. Much of the show was presented in New York City in 2006 at the Spiegeltent, under the name Absinthe; thanks to the core strength of its gifted performers, it is very enjoyable in this second helping."
"Beautiful. Funny. Impossible. La Soirée's triumph is that there's not a single moment when one, two or all three of those terms don't apply. In that, as in every other regard, it's identical to La Clique, the award-winning cult circus-cabaret event. There are one or two new acts, but the sexy, freaky, vintage vibe – and the celebration of the wonders achievable when whole lives are dedicated to activities with no utilitarian value whatsoever – is unchanged."
