The show promises to “sparkle with performances by [Montreal’s own] feature star Scarlett James,” who has managed the impressive task of captivating European, Las Vegas, and Shanghai audiences, thanks, in part, to her impressive tailored costumes sure to titillate anyone in her audience.

The circus component of the show will be provided by Duo Miraka, “two stunning female acrobats who have taken the circus world by storm with their prowess on the hoopole – a unique hybrid apparatus combining a dancing pole with an aerial hoop”.

FAM also promises to satisfy your live-music need thanks to performances by Christian Leclair and his Big Band. Leclerc is a veteran of such musicals as Hairspray and Grease and is considered Quebec’s master of the big band sound.
