Are you new to New York City and looking for a new place to have an amazing time? Or, you’re a NYC veteran, tired of going to the same old shows. Maybe you have friends or relatives visiting and want to impress them? Well, if you’re ready for a knock you socks off experience, then pick up some tickets to Fuerza Bruta. This show, from the makers of De La Guarda, is a once in a lifetime unique experience that you won’t soon forget.
Fuerza Bruta is currently playing at the Daryl Roth Theatre right in the heart of Union Square in New York City. It’s not your typical Broadway show with seats and a stage. Instead, the stage, actors and audience are in constant motion. From a man running at full speed through moving walls to women dancing and frolicking in water while suspended a few inches above your head, Fuerza Bruta is more than a show, it’s a 360 degree experience. The show may only last an hour, but any more than that may be sensory overload. Just in case your thirsty, the pre-show waiting area has a bar which offers 2 for 1 drink specials after the show. Keep an eye out for the Fuerza Bruta Facebook page where they often offer discount ticket prices.
Many of my friends have already seen Fuerza Bruta and have said so many wonderful things about the show that I decided it was my time to go see for myself. As you enter the theater, the room is filled with smoke to add to the anticipation. As the show begins, stagehands direct the audience as stage pieces move into the room. Within the next few minutes the audience witnesses a man running on a treadmill, women floating in the air and a choreographed dance sequence. But that’s only the beginning.
Then the real fun starts as a large thick plastic sheet is laid across the room high above our heads. Water is poured on the plastic and women in flowing dresses jump, twirl, dance, run and swim on the plastic while suspended in the air. The plastic is then slowly lowered all the way down until it is only inches from your head. You really feel like you are part of the show and not just a spectator. Fuerza Bruta then ends with the actors jumping into the audience, an explosion of confetti and glitter, and water spraying over the audience. Don’t worry, the water is only a mist at first. For those who truly want to immerse themselves in the experience, the center of the floor opens into a full on rain shower! There are so many other surprises in Fuerza Bruta, you just have to see for yourself.
There is truly nothing like Fuerza Bruta, it is completely unpredictable and utterly amazing. I cannot say enough good things about this show. If you live in or new New York City, you must go to the next show. If you plan on visiting New York soon, purchase tickets in advance for this amazing adventure. You will never find anything else like Fuerza Bruta.
