A charitable 2 stars. But as a longtime fan of the Cirque, it was really a disappointment. A couple of good acts (gymnastic, acrobatic, juggler types) in the Cirque tradition, and good live music. Really tedious clown acts: tired vaudville jokes and slapstick acts that went on forever. And beware the adult humor if you are bringing the kids!
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.
