New Cirque Dreams show comes to Honeywell

Posted: Thursday, February 16, 2012

Cirque Dreams: Pop Goes The Rock makes its debut in Wabash when it arrives at the Honeywell Center on Tuesday, March 6 at 7 p.m.  Sponsored by First Merchants Bank, the new show by Cirque Dreams combines a variety of entertaining acts and acrobatic feats to popular songs and chart topping hits spanning decades.

Pop Goes The Rock is the newest musical stage spectacle from the mind of Neil Goldberg, creator of the groundbreaking Broadway hit Cirque Dreams: Jungle Fantasy and the famed Cirque Dreams entertainment brand.  This one-of-a-kind variety show unites generations through a mash-up of celebrated pop and rock tunes that will entertain family audiences of all ages.  Cirque Dreams aerialists, gravity defying balancers, powerful strongmen and an array of awe-inspiring acts are accompanied by a dance crew, singers and a band performing over 20-chart topping hits live on stage.

Neil Goldberg’s stage wizardry blends an international cast who transform a carnival funhouse into a rock and roll party.  Music and fantasy ignite the funhouse when Jack pops out of his box and catapults the artists into feats of impossibilities, mayhem and sensory overload that doesn’t stop until Jack returns to his box.  Music for Pop Goes The Rock are presented and performed live for over 14 variety acts, more than 100 costumed characters, elaborate lighting, special effects and more.  Song titles include “Call Me Irresponsible,” “King of the Road,” “Womanizer,” “Beautiful,” and much more.

Since 1993, the Cirque Dreams brand has entertained more than 50 million people worldwide, with shows appearing in theaters, casinos, theme parks, at sea and on Broadway.  Cirque Dreams has garnered critical acclaim from USA Today, The New York Times, The Associated Press, CNN, the Today Show, Fox & Friends and more.  The Cirque Dreams franchise includes a growing number of popular shows nationwide including Cirque Dreams: Jungle Fantasy and the recent multiple company tours of Cirque Dreams: Holidaze, which have performed at the Honeywell Center.
