On Wednesday, September 19 media and select VIP’s were treated to a private preview party to experience Kooza, a Cirque Du Soleil creation. The big tent, or Grand Chapiteau, was filled to capacity. In fact, it would almost be easier to list who wasn’t there than who was. Just to name a few of Dallas Who’s Who in attendance were publicists Allyson Aynesworth, Jeff Crilley, Lisa Endicott, Hamilton Sneed, style guru Steve Kemble, Victoria Snee, blogger Cynthia Smoot, local actress Leeanne Locken, Dallas TV star Larry Hagman, actor Drew Waters, Bravo TV’s Matt Nordgren, restaurateurs Stephan Pyles, Abraham Salum, Shawn Horne, Tiffany Derry, CBS reporter Teresa Frosini and the list goes on.
Cirque Du Soleil never fails to amaze and this show is no exception. Lauren Smart calls Kooza “the most traditional show created by Cirque in recent years.”
Created by David Shiner, Kooza takes you back to days when the circus was mysterious, maybe even a little dangerous. A sinister stranger tempts a young child into a magical world where in between nail-biting feats of acrobatics, contortionists, high wire balancing and more, a trio of clowns and two footmen amuse and harass the audience. Be warned, their antics are filled with adult humor that is not appropriate for young children.
Cirque Du Soleil donated 500 tickets to Friday, September 21 show to Promise House. One hundred percent of those ticket sales went to the mission to help homeless, runaway and at-risk teens. We love that philanthropic addition to such a wonderful performance!
