Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy debuted at the Broadway Theatre in 2008 and is to date, the first and only show of its kind to ever perform on Broadway. The show furthered its critical acclaim in 2010 when pop princess icon Debbie Gibson, performed the leading role of Mother Nature at the MGM Grand Theatre, Foxwoods, Connecticut. Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy received the 2011 Brass Ring award for live entertainment excellence at Busch Gardens Tampa and recently returned from a United States Armed Forces world tour entertaining over 100,000 troops and their families at 17 military installations throughout 10 countries. In 2013, the show was redesigned into a modern dinner theatre experience in partnership with Norwegian Cruise Lines Breakaway, sailing year-round from NYC and voted "Best Show at Sea" by Porthole Magazine.
Created and directed by renown theatrical and circus impresario Neil Goldberg, Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy is an exotic encounter inspired by nature's unpredictable creations that are brought to life by an international cast of soaring aerialists, spine-bending contortionists, acrobats, jugglers and musicians. The astounding feats performed in this action packed Cirque Dream are enhanced with spectacular costumes nominated for an American Theatre Wing Best Costume Design Award. The journey comes to life in a fantastical jungle setting filled with flowers, magical trees and a variety of special effects. From the Butterfly Ballet and Flipping Monkeys to Hopping Frogs and Stretching Lizards, this world-class explosion of imagination, athleticism and Broadway theatrics will exhilarate and entertain audiences of all ages.
