Cirque Le Jazz – One Night Only

New York’s 2 Ring Circus to present high flying, big band circus spectacle Cirque Le Jazz as a benefit for the Fulton Theatre

New York’s 2 Ring Circus has followed the Yellow Brick Road to the Fulton Theatre to fulfill Artistic Director Marc Robin’s vision of bringing circus elements to the largest production in the theater’s 160-year history. In addition to seeing the company 8 shows per week in The Wizard of Oz, they will also be performing their signature work, Cirque Le Jazz, in an evening to benefit the Fulton. The aerial circus company, founded in 2010, is comprised of four performers: Joshua Dean, Ben Franklin, Lani Corson & Kenneth Ziegler.

The one-night only event will be held on July 12th at 7:30pm, and features a big band soundtrack with a song list that ranges from traditional circus to the swinging hits of the 30’s and 40’s. 2 Ring Circus specializes in bringing a theatrical twist to traditional circus, and Cirque Le Jazz is just that: a heart-warming fusion of Broadway-style song and dance, stunning aerial artistry, ground acrobatics and unflappable charm perfect for audiences of all ages.

For the last decade, members of the company have been bringing their brand of circus to theatrical productions with such organizations as L.A. Opera, Alabama Shakespeare Festival, Hartford Stage, The Araca Project, Fulton Theatre and Pace University, while coming together to create full-length spectacles of their own. This past Holiday season, Cirque Le Jazz toured 10 cities all over China to rave reviews.
