Cirque du Soleil: “Volta”
From the Cirque du Soleil: “Volta” deal description:
Cirque du Soleil’s show combines acrobatic feats with adrenaline-pumping action sports to create a narrative about blazing one’s own trail. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, the show weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score.

Inspired by real-life events, this play offers a theatrical retelling of the recording sessions for the Ramones’ 1979 album, End of the Century. The drama includes a love triangle involving two band members, as well as discord between the Ramones and the album’s producer, the infamous and mercurial Phil Spector, who reportedly brandished a pistol once, forcing the punk rockers to continue recording. What it isn’t: a musical.
