Carnival! Featuring Two Members of Suspended Cirque

Carnival-450

This past summer, two very good friends of mine and Michelle’s, Joshua Dean and Benjamin Franklin, performed in the Goodspeed Opera House production of Carnival!

Co-founders of Suspended Cirque (along with Michelle, Angela and Kris), Josh and Ben were featured aerialists in the show — adding a strong cirque aesthetic to the production. Josh created all of the aerial choreography.

Check out the highlight reel of Carnival! from the Playbill website:

Michelle and I went to see the show twice! It was a beautiful production, and the entire cast were absolutely fabulous.

There’s an article on Playbill’s website about the show here, and you can read a very nice interview with actress Lauren Worsham, who plays the show’s lead character Lili, here.

Below are a few official press images from the show (by Diane Sobolewski) that I have collected from Internet.

Thanks Ben and Josh!
