If you missed Les 7 doigts’ triumphant celebration of the human mind and body, there’s another chance to witness the stunning feats of these circus trailblazers at ArtsEmerson this summer. The staggeringly talented young performers of PSY each have their own peculiar modern malady along with an amazing set of heart-stopping, death-defying circus skills to match — including aerial ropes, trapeze and breathtaking acrobatics.

Awesome 80's Prom!
The Bello Playhouse @ Venu
THE AWESOME 80S PROM is a brand new blast-from-the-past interactive show in the style of Tony 'n Tina's Wedding and The Donkey Show set at Wanaget High's Senior Prom . . . in 1989! All your favorite characters from your favorite '80s movies are at THE PROM, from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the hottie Head Cheerleader, and they're all competing for Prom King and Queen. And just like on "American Idol", the audience decides who wins, all while moonwalkin' to retro hits like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!" Come "Back In Time", to quote a Huey Lewis tune, and join the breakdance circle or just stand back and watch the '80s drama unfold. Come on, you know you have a Members Only jacket somewhere. If you're lucky, you'll even get to dance with the Captain of the Football Team. . . and this time, you don't have a curfew.
