The circus has come to town! The internationally acclaimed live circus-cabaret show La Soiree begins performances at off-Broadway's Union Square Theatre October 29. Opening night is set for November 7.
The sexy, funny and dangerous world of La Soiree combines cabaret, new burlesque, circus sideshow and contemporary variety in one seductive setting. The evening features a rotating cast of over 20 artists, with the acts varying from night to night. La Soiree brings the flashiness of vaudeville salons straight into the 21st century with ringside seats, bar service and posh tables. Performers for La Soiree will include stars of the Olivier-Award winning La Clique.
La Soiree first appeared in New York in 2006 under the title Absinthe: Les Artistes de La Clique. Subsequent versions of Absinthe shows were inspired by the original production but did not have any of the same creative or production team. Since its inaugural production in London at the South Bank, La Soiree has played Australia, Sweden, Denmark and Germany.
