On February 8th, the ice version of Cirque du Soleil will debut in the Middle East. Until now, the show has primarily toured in Europe. It will feature a cast called the Russian Ice Stars – professional ice skating contortionists, satin rope aerialists, fire throwers and more. However, I don’t think jugglers made the cut (sad face). If you’ve ever seen one of the many Cirque de Soleil shows, you know their acts are full of nail-biting routines. Just imagine those tricks on ice. My heart races at the thought! If this is a taste of what’s in store, I’m sure the audiences will leave in awe.
Tapping into another set of emotions, a play of the 1989 classic film, Steel Magnolias, will premier this year on the stage of the Kuwait Little Theatre. They’re in casting now and I’d love to know who will be the lucky lady that says, “Go ahead M’Lynn, slap her!”
Looks like the theatrical scene in Kuwait is delivering some appluad-worthy productions.
