Cirque du Soleil is putting on a new production, “Banana Shpeel,” at the Beacon Theatre starting Feb. 25 and to kick it off the theatre is holding an open house next week. On Feb. 10, from 4:30 to 7 p.m., visitors can check out the historic theater on 74th Street and Broadway, which was renovated by the Dolan family and the architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle.
The event will feature food and drinks from local restaurants and a chance to meet the artists behind Cirque. Also, if you bring a banana you might win free tickets to the show. Yes, that’s kind of strange, but people do strange things for free stuff all the time. (image via Landmark West)
