I was recently fortunate enough to attend a performance of Funambula at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino. Let me tell you a bit about it!
First, the Beau Rivage is absolutely gorgeous!!!! The flower arrangements are jaw dropping and the shopping mezzanine is a dream! While the Beau has a huge parking garage with ample room, I personally prefer the courtesy valet. When you are wearing heels, which I was, it is nice to have your car brought to you. Granted, there will be a few minutes wait after a show as popular as Funambula lets out...but it was by no means excessive. While you're waiting, you get to take in the beautiful front gardens at the Beau.
Now on to the show! Funambula is led by feature performer Bello. How to describe Bello? I guess I would describe him as a tornadic ball of energy with two feet tall hair. Trust me...as you are watching the show, you'll be able to determine which performer is Bello with no problem!
The show consists of multiple acrobatic acts. There are beauties dancing on ribbons, contortionists, motorcyclists, etc., etc., etc. From beginning to end, the action never stops. There were moments that make you laugh out loud and others where you cannot breathe because your heart is in your throat. For breathtaking beauty, you cannot miss the final act...it was spectacular!!
This is a child-friendly show. Be warned, you will have to walk at the edge of the casino floor to get to the theater. Once inside, there is not a bad seat in the house. I was extremely fortunate to be on the second row and had an incredible view. Actually, for some of the acts that took place very high, a higher seat probably had an even better view! I would definitely recommend this for families, couples, or a girls' night out!
If you are wondering why I haven't included pictures...there are two reasons.
1. It was prohibited in the theater.
2. I didn't want to get kicked out and miss the show!!
