There was excitement at the Peacock Theatre last week for the Cirque Berserk press night! Paparazzi and TV crews crowded the entrance to the theatre, looking to catch a shot or an interview with visiting celebs. Directors of venues in Guildford didn’t seem to be on their list though, as Carolyn (my wife) and I slipped through the doors unmolested.
The show lived up the excitement with a cast from all parts of the world amazing the audience with their skill and daring stunts. We both loved the motorbikes who swaggered (if a bike can swagger) their way into a globe and proceeded to whizz around at a bewildering speed without mishap. The noise and smell reminded me of the outrageous motorbike and chainsaw act from Archaos, if you ever had the joy of seeing that amazing circus.
The Peacock isn’t quite as big at G Live; I can’t wait to see the spectacular show here in Guildford. Audiences are going to love it.
