Life: Cirque Berzerk - Beneath

Otter, Pirate Brian, Farilla and I arrived just before show time. After getting a lot of advice from friends who have seen the show we opted to buy tix at the venue. Screw you unnecessary online service fees! We were also advised that there wasn't a bad seat in the house. Werd, to that!

Waiting for the show to begin...just off to our right scary drunk clown peaks over a divider separating our seats from back stage. I'm pretty sure I was the only one who noticed. I smiled at him and he slipped back into the darkness. As we sat there staring at this empty stage I realized that the show had already started.

If you haven't seen Beneath then you're missing out. It was completely entertaining AND inspiring. The costumes and makeup were absolutely divine! The singers...WOW! My favorite performances (without giving too much away) were the masked dancers, the underwater lovers and the trampoline act. I'm happy to hear the show has been extended through the end of summer. Seriously go see it! You won't be disappointed. Also worth mentioning is the large outdoor venue which includes burner-friendly vendors, food, a bar and a separate performance stage. Helios Jive occupied the stage last night. Good stuff. A very carnival-esque type atmosphere...which you know I love!
