“So much fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Saw this show with my husband and it was so much fun. Get there 1/2 hour before show starts because it is general seating. There is a small round stage in the middle with about 7 rows of seats around it. We sat in the last row because it was higher than all the other rows. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Different acts come out like juggler, acrobatics, singer on roller skates, a lady dancing with hula hoops and all of them are inactive with the audience and grab your attention and make you laugh. You get free popcorn when you get there and there are drinks available to buy.

“Naughty fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

The folks who brought "Absinthe" and "Empire" to the Spiegelworld tent are back in town with a newly titled, if not newly minted, show at Union Square Theatre. This erotically charged circus-cabaret-burlesque show is definitely not for the kiddies. Many of the acts are either identical or similar to previous ones. There's beefcake aplenty including The English Gents, a sensational two-man balancing act, and Bath Boy, a hunky bare-chested man in wet Levis performing tricks on parallel hanging straps from a bathtub. Plastic sheets are thoughtfully provided to protect those sitting in front. There are a few other enjoyable acts I can't name for lack of a program. This year's show adds full frontal female nudity to the mix and seemed generally a bit raunchier. There were two acts with lots of audience participation that dragged a bit. At almost two hours including intermission, it was too much of a good thing. If you enjoyed either or both of their previous shows -- and I did -- you should like this one too.

“Don't be scared, it's not that naughty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

What an entertaining, funny and invigorating show this is!. We enjoyed the entire performance- each artist was outstanding at what they did! The puppeteers rocked, M M was perhaps the most original juggler I've ever seen, and the British Gents were mesmerizing. Go as early as you can to get right up front- though there are no bad seats in this small theater. We were either laughing, smiling or sitting with our mouth's agape at each act. While parts were a little risque ( I don't mind letting my wife see a little beefcake) it wasn't TOO racy that anyone with a bit of open-mindedness couldn't appreciate. At a fraction of the cost of a Broadway show, this is big bang for little buck.

“Crazy Fun Circus!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Funny, very entertaining and kept me smiling and laughing the whole time. Tiny theatre. Get there early to sit in the front rows. A devious thrill ride that questions the traditional acts often seen in a circus. With a hilarious and sexy twist. This is not the Ringling Brothers you grew up with.
A MUST SEE!!!

“Not a dull moment..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Loved this show! If your looking for some entertainment, you definitely have to see this event. Its a great mix between talent, comedy and sexiness, I was surprised that all three would fit together so seamlessly. Not only would I recommend this show, I would go and see this show again.
