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.

Bender and his henchmen drag Gibby into a room and throw him to the ground. Gibby protests that he hasn’t done anything wrong, but Bender and the others know better. They have found the man responsible for the ‘70s smiley face and the phrase “Have a nice day,” and they’re going to make him pay.
Wash and Dry_
Marianne stops by the laundromat, but she’s horrified to discover that her laundry hasn’t been cleaned.
Thinking Up a New Name for the Act
Pete hits on the phrase “Meat and Potatoes” as the perfect name for their vaudeville act, but Lucy doesn’t like it. The only words in this farcical sketch are “Meat and Potatoes.”
Note: This sketch is the ultimate acting exercise. The only dialogue in the sketch is “Meat and Potatoes” repeated over, but it plays out like an entire Law & Order Episode
Blind Willie and the Talking Dog_
Blind Willie sings the blues and asks passersby if they can spare a nickel or dime to help him and his hungry dog. But his dog can’t understand why Willie refuses to use the fact that he owns a talking dog to make some real money.
