The 90-minute production, which comes to Akron this weekend, is set in a lush, tropical forest, where vine-swinging trapeze artists and back-bending contortionists fill the stage. The 22-year-old Balestracci -- who plays a jungle boy -- leads an 11-man jump-rope team through a choreographed series of intricate moves. This show has more energy, style, colors, and acrobats than youll ever see in Vegas, he says. Theres so much talent on one stage and so much going on that people dont know when to clap. Their jaws just drop.
