Attending any kind of Cirque performance is like participating in a waking dream. The acts of incredible skill, the costuming and set design work together to create this sense of reverie, right alongside your imagination, of course. Now, suppose your dream world has shifted to the jungle and that the living things there — the butterflies, the exotic lizards and even the giraffes — flip, twist, balance and fly all for your amusement and wonder. Pretty cool, huh? Be swept away to this tropical rain forest of your dreams when Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy takes root at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard). Shows happen every day except Monday from Tuesday, March 17, through Sunday, March 29, and tickets, available by calling 314-534-1111 or visiting www.metrotix.com, cost $17 to $63.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: March 17. Continues through March 29, 2009
