Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy is the latest brainchild of Goldberg’s theatrical imagination and Cirque Productions, creators of international performance and touring sensations Cirque Ingenieux, Cirque Dreams Pandemonia, Cirque Dreams Coobrila, Cirque Dreams Illumination and Cirque Dreams Holidaze. Over one million fans throughout the U.S. have attended a Cirque Dreams show in the last year. “Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy remains true to my original Cirque Dreams Jungle vision which began with the company in 1993 - to blend European artistry with circus and Broadway theatrics in a dramatic fashion that transcends imagination, leaves its narration to the eyes of the beholder, and offers something for everyone” says Goldberg.
The New York Post agrees and proclaims Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy “Dazzling…a highly theatrical presentation replete with elaborate scenery and wall-to-wall music”, and for children whose passion is gymnastics or jungle fauna, the New York Times says, “Waste no shekels on tickets for The Lion King.
