Golden Dragon Acrobats presents Cirque Ziva
Wowing audiences across the world since 1967, the Golden Dragon Acrobats are widely recognized as the preeminent Chinese acrobatic company in the US. Drawing their costumes and choreography from the last 2,000 years of Chinese history, they make centuries-old traditions seem futuristic. “There is a precision and beauty about everything they do,” says The Washington Post, and all of that grace is on display in their latest showcase, Cirque Ziva. With a fresh cast pulled from global acrobatic competitions, Cirque Ziva floods the stage with breathtaking physicality. Shrouded in stunning sets that accentuate their movements, the performers delight audiences and make chiropractors drool as they balance atop human ladders, catapult through the air onto each others’ heads, and become human wheels.
There was no joy—or Puccini—in Millville when the Wilson Opera House burned to rubble in 1898. Thankfully for entertainment seekers, the Levoy Theatre rose from those ashes just 10 years later, starting out as a silent movie hall and vaudeville house in 1908. As with many theaters in the National Register of Historic Places, the Levoy witnessed vaudeville's demise when Warner Brothers turned it into a movie house in 1930. It saw great success throughout the '40s, but then suffered 36 years of vacancy during the age of the multiplexes. Then, in 1998, the Levoy Theater Preservation Society formed to save the landmark from extinction and restore its luster. Today, the marquee, facade, and interiors mirror the Levoy of the 1920s, and brand-new seats and a souped-up sound system help audiences forget about the world outside. The theater's diverse array of programming includes music concerts, dance productions, movies, and comedies, as well as dramas and musicals by The Off Broad Street Players, its resident theater company. But despite the times, the Levoy hasn't forgotten its roots, and at its 2013 reopening the silent films of Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton graced the screen, accompanied by a ragtime orchestra.
