The comic antics of Martin Lamberti from the U.S.A. also were part of the evening’s highlights. He played the Vagabond, a key comic character who mimed his way throughout various acts in the show and who was featured as the director of “Right to Remain Silent,” a comedic number using members of the audience as actors in a silent film. The Vagabond directs using only a whistle and body language, which had the entire audience, as well as his actors, in stitches.
One of the show’s surprises came in the form of Robert Muraine, the popper who first gained national attention during Season 4 of the TV show, So You Think You Can Dance. Robert’s pop and lock dance style complements the contortionist style of the cirque show, seamlessly connecting the show’s acrobatics with dance. Muraine’s expertise and performance added to the excellence of the production.
Cirque Dreams Illumination played the Palace for only three shows ending on January 16th. I highly recommend that you try to catch the tour when it comes to your town. This theatrical event is truly a feast for the eyes and will delight audiences of all ages.
