Paramount Theatre - Cedar Rapids
In 1993, Neil Goldberg founded Cirque Productions in Florida. Although the name is similar, the company is not affiliated with Cirque du Soleil. Another option, Cirque Productions gives fans the chance to see a fantasy circus produced by an American organization. The company has created many shows, such as Imaginique for Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Cirque Dreams Coobrila at Six Flags, and Jungle Fantasy.
Born in New York City, Neil Goldberg has directed many events, including the Miss Universe Pageant and the Super Bowl. Soon he formed his own company, Cirque Productions. In 1999, Cirque du Soleil sued Cirque Productions for trademark infringement. However, Neil Goldberg won the legal battle in 2004 when the courts ruled that "cirque" was a generic term. Over 1.5 million people attended Cirque Dreams shows in 2007, and now you can visit this magnificent circus with discount Jungle Fantasy tickets.
Neil Goldberg always dreamed of producing a Broadway show, and his dream came true with Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy. The cast, which included contortionists from Mongolia and athletes from Asia, Europe, and Russia, practiced at a facility called Dream Studios. At 20,000 square feet, Dream Studios includes a wardrobe department, choreographers, gymnasts, coaches, and aerial rigging.
Jungle Fantasy began touring in 2006 and later moved to Broadway and finally a long-term engagement in Atlantic City, NJ, and Connecticut. Children and adults will love this performing arts spectacular set in an enchanted jungle. Wake up your imagination and enjoy acrobatic feats of wonder as forest scenes delight your eyes.
