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. Not surprisingly, Lone Star Circus’ annual productions, which celebrate and usher in the New Year in great style, have developed a huge fan following that grows every year. What most folks may not know is that the show literally comes together in about 2 – 3 days. Quite impressive considering the caliber of the performances. Each act is performed by experienced circus professionals who mesmerize the audience with their brilliant skill in the circus arts.

Unique to this year’s production, directed by Kerwich and Dimitri Bogatirev, is a western theme that brings with it a sense of good old fashioned Texas pride. Serenading the crowd in between introducing acts, show host Gary Lynn Floyd has a relaxed, southern manner about him and does a great job bringing a cohesive flow to the production.
