As I entered the Auditorium Theatre’s doors, I was transported to a different place. This was not the Auditorium Theatre I had been to before. The venue was transformed into a hip nightclub type setting. Music blasted, strobe lights flashed and people mingled while sipping on specialty drinks from the bar. It was clear that everyone was already having a fabulous time, and the show hadn’t even started yet! Upon the end of drinks and refreshments, an enthusiastic audience hurried into the house and onto the large stage. Audience members are not seated for this performance, but instead stand for the duration in order to be right in the middle of the action.
You will be floored from start to finish! In this performance you will see acrobats cart wheeling through the air, a man crashing through paper walls, girls slipping and sliding across a giant water doused cellophane stage overhead and dancers stomping amidst a sea of paper and Styrofoam confetti, all set to an upbeat electronic soundtrack that will have you dancing along with the cast!
Members of the cast include Martin Buzzo, Marcelo Curotti, Gabriela Gomez, John Hartzell, Jeslyn Kelly, Tamara Levinson, Nazarena Mon, Lucia Penalva, Eugenia Schilling and Debora Torres.
It is no wonder that FUERZA BRUTA: LOOK UP has so many celebrity followers! Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Jessica Alba, Fergie, Beyonce, Rachel McAdams, Jude Law, John Legend, Tyra Banks, Shakira, Alexis Bledel, Serena Williams, Penn Badgley and Blake Lively have all enjoyed the show!
Actor Ashton Kutcher told LIVE With Regis and Kelly, “ We went to this show yesterday. We ended up seeing this show FUERZA BRUTA. It’s UNBELIEVABLE! The show blew my mind! It’s bananas. That show was fantastic. We went last night. It was just amazing. We loved it. We had an absolute blast. We loved it!”
With praise like that, how can you say no? It really is something you have to see to believe!
