EAST LANSING, MI — Join the outrageous zaniness and the blizzard of unrestrained laughter as three former stars of Cirque du Soleil juggle, stilt-walk and pratfall their way through paper pandemonium. Aga-Boom combines the unbridled silliness of slapstick and the humor of physical comedy with theatrical expressionism and poetry. The catacylsmic finale will leave you breathless, as toilet-paper streamers, confetti, inflated trash bags, bouncing balls, lights, alarms and enormous balloons engulf the audience. Tickets are available at whartoncenter.com, by visiting the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office in Wharton Center, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
Aga-Boom is rooted in the unique European theatrical style and the universal language of clowning. It cuts through the barriers of language and culture with the art of slapstick, the humor of physical comedy and the delighted excitement of childhood.
Aga-Boom is an interactive mayhem that carries audiences to the other side of the funhouse mirror, with outrageous zaniness and unrestrained laughter. This 75-minute explosion of pure family fun – for children and adults alike – is high energy, and like nothing you have ever seen before
Created by veteran of Cirque Du Soleil, Dimitri Bogatirev , Aga-Boom was nominated for the Ovation Award in the category of Best Touring Show, along with The Producers, 42nd Street, Lily Tomlin and Elaine Stritch.
Aga-Boom had successful engagements on Broadway, and in Las Vegas, San Francisco, Boston, and Los Angeles. It was highly critically acclaimed from coast to coast. The show has thrilled and delighted audiences around the world.
The New York Times writes, “Masterly clowning with its own originality...Pure family fun."
The LA TIMES writes, “Closer to being literally riotous - as in so funny that the audience did more than just laugh - than any theatrical experience within memory."
