The dancing acts and especially the pole acrobat in white was amazing. The vaudville schtick between the 2 main characters was ok, and pretty funny, but it dragged on for a while. I was pretty surprised at the rather adult humor/jokes that were put out there. Other than that, the music was wonderful,and again, the dancing was spectacular. It was a mix of big-band, swing, hip-hop and MGM musical. I would highly recommend it.
Quotes & Highlights
- Visit the Banana Shpeel creation journal at Cirque du Soleil's website for an insight into the production.
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. This is not circus, or a musical or a variety show, or even vaudeville. Get ready for an exciting fusion of genres, directed by David Shiner — accomplished comedic actor, Broadway creator and director of KOOZA from Cirque du Soleil.
