The Details: POP GOES THE ROCK is the newest musical stage spectacle from CIRQUE DREAMS and the mind of Neil Goldberg, creator of the groundbreaking Broadway hit “Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy” and the famed Cirque Dreams entertainment brand. This one-of a kind variety show unites generations through a mash-up of celebrated pop and rock tunes that will entertain family audiences of all ages. Cirque Dreams daring aerialists, gravity defying balancers, powerful strongmen and an array of edgy awe-inspiring acts are accompanied by a hip dance crew, cool singers and a jammin’ band performing over 20-chart topping hits live on stage.
Goldberg’s stage wizardry blends an international cast of astonishing Cirque Dreamers who transform a carnival funhouse into a rock ‘n’ roll party that’s movin’ & groovin’ to an original live band. Music and fantasy ignite the funhouse when Jack pops out of his box and catapults the artists into feats of impossibilities, mayhem and uncontrollable sensory spectacle that never stops until…Jack’s back in the box. The songs for POP GOES THE ROCK are presented and performed live through special arrangements with Sony ATV/Music Publishing and accompany over 14 variety acts, more than 100 costumed characters, elaborate lighting, special effects and more. Song titles include “Call Me Irresponsible”, “King of the Road”, “Womanizer”, “Beautiful,” “Zoot Suit Riot,” “She Bangs”, “The Heat is On,” “In the Summertime,” “Let it Ride,” “Apologize,” “No More Mister Nice Guy,” “Never Gonna Let you Go” “Like a Prayer,” “Right ‘Round,” “Jump (For My Love),” “Rapper’s Delight,” “I Love the Nightlife” and decades more!
