What You'll Get
Acrobats must train for years, overcoming a fear of heights with progressively higher trapezes and dizziness with regular naps inside a dryer. Catch the high-flying fruits of their labor with this GrouponLive deal to see Empire at Spiegelworld. For $49, you get one ticket for any performance through August 31 (up to an $89 value). Tickets are for best-available seating at the time of purchase, including the first several rows and the booths. Shows run Wednesday–Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., and Sunday and Monday at 7:30 p.m.
With a show described by Time Out New York as "spectacular and kinetically stunning," Spiegelworld returns for the summer with Empire, a blend of acrobatic feats, shocking comedy, and collar-heating burlesque. Spiegelworld's intimate, antique circus tent brings audiences back to showmanship's heyday, with velvet booths and seats nearly at arm's length from the precariously small center stage's anti-gravitational acts. Visually stunning performances stud the 90-minute show, such as an aerial artist who performs inside a suspended sphere, an acrobat who juggles and flips his partner with his legs, and an emcee spitting pieces of banana into the mouth of his assistant from across the stage, leaving audiences exhilarated and wondering about their own potassium levels. Each gasp is balanced by a laugh, as racy humor mixes with sexually charged antics, such as a trio of bra-clad performers wearing gorilla masks.
