Experience an amazing night of high-flying feats and stunning imagery from Cirque du Soleil. This magical romance, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, takes you to a mysterious island where goddesses walk the land and the rhythm of life is ruled by the cycles of the moon. The daughter of Queen Prospera is undergoing the rituals of her coming-of-age ceremony when a group of young men, caught up in a storm, become stranded on the island. Prospera's daughter falls in love with one of the brave sailors, but the two lovers must overcome many trials and setbacks before finding peace together. As the story unfolds, the dazzling arts of Cirque du Soleil illustrate the tale. The island world of Amaluna bursts to life with jugglers, aerial performers, dancers, unicyclists and much more.

In this wry, energetic autobiographical adventure play, No Parole takes the audience on a kaleidoscopic journey through the real life of his flamboyant, live-for-the-moment con artist mother, who has no trouble posing as an attorney, professor, daycare worker, or nun —- as seen through the eyes of the young son who acts as her look-out, bail, partner-in-crime, and follows her across borders, into jail, and finally to the end of the road.
Performer Carlo D’Amore plays all the characters, from his mother as a vibrant, young woman, to her 60 year-old stroke-battered self, as well as himself as a child, teenager, and adult, his brother, father, various law enforcement officials, doctors, and others taken in by his mother’s imaginative schemes — which run the gamut from shoplifting to international drug smuggling. Traveling from their native Peru, bypassing Mexican border officials without legal Visas, and into the promised land of the U.S., from the Hollywood Hills to an illegal New York City walk-up, No Parole provides a vivid, hilarious look into the life of an extraordinary woman who saw the world as her playground, and the son who must deal with his mothers very unique addiction.
An actor, playwright, director, and educator with over twenty-two years of experience in the theatre, Carlo D’Amore has been involved in groundbreaking productions across the country. No Parole has already been named one of the top ten plays in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2007. D’Amore also filled seven roles in the Cheech Marin-directed Latinologues at the Helen Hayes Theater on Broadway, as well as being featured in Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke for the Roundabout Theater Company. Regional acting credits include roles with San Diego Repertory Theatre, two seasons with the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival (Shakespeare in the Park), and three productions at the legendary Magic Theater, including two collaborations with Pulitzer-winning playwright Nilo Cruz. His work in film and television includes collaborations with Spike Lee, Anjelica Huston, and OZ director Tom Fontana. Carlo is also the creator of the interactive NYC hits: The Lower East Side Murder Mystery, and Murder on the Waterfront.
