On November 30, MagicSpace Entertainment launches a 27 city tour of A MAGICAL CIRQUE CHRISTMAS, a comedic, musical, and magic-filled time travel journey of the holidays through the years that is both a perfect date night and a fun family outing. The glamourous and award winning comedic magician Lucy Darling whom David Copperfield calls “a true original – hilarious and delightful; An EXCEPTIONAL new talent in magic” is joined by Postmodern Jukebox vocalist Therese Curatolo who sings Christmas classics in period styles, and a cast of world-acclaimed cirque artists. Tickets are on sale at www.MagicalCirqueChristmas.com.
The Christmas tale begins as the Guardian of Time, who manages the changing of the seasons with his giant magical clock, struggles to find the right spirit to start the holiday season this year. In other words, he’s not feeling it. An optimistic, magical sprite (Darling) appears to help but despite her best intentions, causes time to go haywire when she breaks the clock. The story jumps along the time spectrum with visits to the rollicking 1920s a la The Great Gatsby, the rock’n roll 1950s, the Disco 1970s, and a classic Victorian London reminiscent of Charles Dickens, and is accompanied by beautiful holiday music from each period. To keep the clock ticking and save the season, Darling uses all her skills with jaw-dropping tricks and amazing feats of illusion.
Audiences of all ages will be amazed and delighted by daring circus acts from around the
world who have entertained TV audiences on America’s Got Talent and The Late Show. Dazzling
artists include synchronized Lyra hoop aerial acrobats, a breathtaking duo trapeze, a contortion
flying streetlamp act, a thrilling chair stacking artist, a Cyr wheel athlete who gyroscopically
rolls, spins, and performs acrobatics in a single metal wheel, an internationally acclaimed high
balancing rola bola artist, a thrilling quadruple banquine team and much more.
“We have all had our holiday traditions turned upside down recently,” said co-director
Jim Millan, one of the world’s foremost directors whose credits cross the West End, Broadway
and Radio City Music Hall with more than 180 shows in 36 countries. “With this show we
wanted to evoke the magic of yesteryear using today’s amazing techniques and dazzling artists
to put wonder back in the season.”
