One of the tightest shows of the Fringe
Cirque du Gay: Exposed
KC Fringe Festival
Combine Cirque Du Soleil with a gay attitude and gay jokes, maintain the same high performance standards, and what do you get? A very tight performance by some very talented men.
You can intend the pun or not, at your discretion.
Most of the shows at the Fringe seem to be a group of talented performers throwing something together and depending on their talents to pull it off. The hard work doesn't always show.
The hard work definitely shows in this production. This show is not simply one with great potential, it is a complete product ready for performance in other venues.
The magic is real. The clowning is funny. The spectacular displays of physical movement and strength are dynamic. The tap-dancing could use a little more flash, but what's there is done extremely well.
I was awed and ashamed that it took me so long to catch this show.
