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.

A riotous comedy thriller steeped in the glamour of 1960s Hollywood,_ Die, Mommie, Die! _stars playwright Charles Busch as Angela Arden, a fallen pop diva trapped in a hateful marriage to film producer Sol Sussman. Desperate to find happiness with her younger lover, Angela becomes the prime suspect when Sol turns up dead. In a plot that reflects Greek tragedy as well as Hollywood kitsch, Angela’s manipulative daughter convinces her “emotionally disturbed” brother that together they must avenge their father’s death … by killing their mother!
