Direct from its world premiere season on Broadway, EMPIRE is the most jaw-dropping show ever seen on the intimate Spiegeltent stage. Somersaulting, slapsticking and stripteasing…the most beautiful, daring and incredibly talented artists have been brought together from all over the globe.
EMPIRE is a love letter from New York City, inspired by the vintage days of vaudeville, the night clubs of the East Village, the eccentric characters on Times Square and the Big Apple's propensity to simply show off. Smashing through the borders of comedy, circus, variety and burlesque, EMPIRE is a weekend-long party in Manhattan, squeezed into 90 minutes and onto a 9-foot diameter stage, and for the first time, presented on the rooftop of Crown Casino.
