With an agile army of acrobats from groups such as Cirque du Soleil and the Moscow Circus twirling and spinning along old-time-inspired machines, Boom Town ponders the connection between humankind and its manufactured labor assistors. Audiences are teleported to the old frontier mining town of Rosebud in 1865, where two shrewd, business-minded saloon owners hope to take advantage of the influx of gymnastically gifted gold-seekers. The battle for riches sparks a musical adventure full of pole-climbing prospectors, dancers atop swinging chandeliers, and authentically flipping cowpokes swathed in colorful costumes.
The show is staged in the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, built in 1904 and since restored to reflect an appealing unity between historic beauty and modern amenity. The performance hall houses 2,300 seats in an elegant, golden-hued atmosphere complete with delicately dangling chandeliers and seats as soft as the moustaches of vaudevillians past.
