Review of Oh La La! Presented by Lone Star Circus

Lone Star Circus infuses this year’s exciting circus spectacular Oh La La! with a chic western flair, a great ensemble of music and a talented cast of internationally renowned entertainers.

When Fanny Kerwich, creative director and founder of Lone Star Circus puts together a show, it’s important to her to create a memorable, vibrant and fun cirque experience that everyone can enjoy.
