Circus Cabaret

Circus Cabaret

Teatro del Gusto: Feast for the Senses 2014

On Sunday, July 13, 2014 The Orange Peel debuts a fresh new Circus Cabaret, featuring diverse performers and a live music showcase series. These events are a collaboration between the always zesty Orange Peel, and Madame Onça, producer of Asheville’s annual Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival, and purveyor of fine international cabaret talent.

Enjoy an evening of aerial arts, comedy, acrobatics, juggling, stunts, and live music with visiting show hosts Paolo Garbanzo and Mark Slomski of Richmond, VA. Can this Old World Italian Impresario and Virginia’s Rascally Vaudevillian cook up a perfect night of entertainment before big boss Madame Onça busts their chops?

Complimentary desserts and table service will turn the Orange Peel into an intimate cabaret experience. The quest for the perfect blend of Old World Cirque and American Roadhouse fun will be seasoned with aerialists, singers, and showgirl burlesque dancers to delight the senses.

Each Teatro show opens and closes with an appetizing local band. In July, local rockers Red Honey take the stage.

“We are excited to partner with the Orange Peel in building this series for summers to come,” says Madame Onca, known as the Hardest Working Woman in Show Business.

“The goal is to create the reputation this year as we introduce Asheville locals and tourists to a new and innovative option for downtown entertainment. Imagine where Asheville, known for both its vibrant arts and food culture, can take this concept as it grows! Maybe a longer evening, bigger production, perhaps even a seated dinner included with the ticket price. Let’s have a feast of the senses, Asheville!”

Ticket holders can receive a 15% discount off their total bill at the following participating restaurants on Teatro nights, before or after the show! Proof of ticket required.

• Storm, 125 S. Lexington,
• Chestnut, 48 Biltmore,
• Hana Japanese, 5 Biltmore,
