Cirque du Soleil 'Amaluna'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Cirque du Soleil's "Amaluna" re imagines Shakespeare's "The Tempest" with a chorus of contortionists.

"Amaluna" is set on an enchanted island governed by glistening goddesses; 70 percent of the artists in are women.

As the head of wardrobe, Larry Edwards wears many hats, including hairstylist, tattoo artist and dresser. The one thing he doesn't do? Makeup.

"They all do their own makeup they were taught how do to their makeup in Montreal," he says. "This is actually Andrianne's face which they then fold over the top so that we just spray paint the tattoo on."

When you tour the United States with almost 50 artists, 65 trucks and 130 costumes, practicality is king. The fact that Cirque du Soleil has invented washable leather echoes their "anything is possible" mantra.

"Amaluna" is playing at Citi Field in Queens through May 18, 2014.

    New York City subway riders are getting back service on the G train between Brooklyn and Queens. The return of service comes as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority reopens a tunnel Tuesday that was heavily damaged by Superstorm Sandy. The Greenpoint tunnel has been closed for five weeks for repairs. Shuttle buses were provided between G stops in Queens and Brooklyn during that time.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
