Kelly says: A delightful dance and acrobatic fantasy
If you can’t afford the astronomical ticket prices of Cirque de Soleil over at Disney, this wordless blend of acrobatics, mime, and dance makes a nice substitute.
The plot, such as it is, involves an amiable innocent with more curiosity than brains who gets sucked into a delightful underseas fantasy world filled with wondrous creatures who form the basis for a series of whimsical routines. Beautiful contortionists on the half-shell perform feats of balance with giant pearls, colorful tropical fish become spinning aerialists, and bizarre multi-colored worm-like critters bounce and wriggle in ways that make you scratch your head and ask, “How’d they do that?” The best is saved for last as a gaggle of zany penguins bounce, tumble, and twist at dizzying speed around their iceberg home.
This show takes a while to hit its stride, but your patience will be rewarded with a fun-filled extravaganza with gorgeous sets, costumes, and lighting that turn the Nautilus Theatre into a watery wonderland.
Note: From time to time, acts change. Contortionists become acrobats and vice versa. However, the overall shape of the show has remained remarkably stable since it first opened.
