“A Riot of Ha-Ha’s, La-La’s and Ta-Da’s” -- that’s how the glitzy, spandex-y, and unrepentantly silly Banana Shpeel is billing itself and you’ll get no argument here. After all, it is the latest show from producer Marty Schmelky, the same entrepreneurial powerhouse who gave the world such hits as Phantom of the Banana; Fiddler on the Banana; The Best Little Banana in Texas; and my personal favorite, Bring in da Noise, Bring in da Banana.
Clearly, when it comes to going bananas, Schmelky knows his stuff, and Banana Shpeel is nothing if not his stuff -- stuff that, when put together, offers audiences a mind-boggling collection of slapstick comedy, eclectic dance and acrobatic acts from around the world.
As for Banana Shpeel writer/director David Shiner, he started out as a mime in Paris and went on to team up with Bill Irwin to create the wordless two-man show Fool Moon that picked up numerous prizes, including a Tony Award. And FYI: Shiner directed his first Cirque du Soleil production, the big top touring show KOOZA. Banana Shpeel is currently playing through August 29th at the Beacon Theatre. For tickets, click here.
