The 7 Fingers created 2 original, groundbreaking shows for Virgin Voyages, the brand-new cruise line of the Virgin Group Ltd.
Responding to the Virgin Group’s desire to redefine the cruising industry, to bring cutting edge quality entertainment that is bold, authentic, and representative of our times, 7 Fingers directors Shana Carroll and Gypsy Snider created Duel Reality and Ships in the Night, respectively.
Duel Reality is featured onboard the “Scarlet Lady” in the caribbean Sea
“Two households, both alike in dignity/ In fair Verona, where we lay our scene/ From ancient grudge break to new mutiny/ Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” Romeo and Juliet
Circus on a whole new theatrical level. We boil this epic love story down to the core of its conflict and drop the stage into a sporting arena. The audience is seated face to face on either side of the action. They witness to two groups in opposition by default, by desire to rise above the other. Through the provocation and conflict, we catch a glimpse of our star crossed lovers. They are fierce players but still do not seem to care who wins or loses if playing the game can bring them closer together. Competition can be playful at times, it can also be dangerously serious.
