The three shows included in the Solstice Show Package (Solstice, Pulse, and Ghostlight) from POET Theatricals debuted in 2008 to live audiences worldwide. In subsequent years, the shows in the Solstice Show Package have won rave audience reviews and the “best entertainment” award from Global Traveler Magazine in 2015. The live production shows in the package (Solstice, Pulse, and Ghostlight) have each been presented over 500 times to almost two million spectators in their last seven year performance run.
In addition to traditional theaters, the Solstice Show Package was designed to be performed in various types of presentation spaces including retail locations (malls for example), temporary performance spaces (including outdoor venues), convention centers, and tents.
2015 Best Entertainment
Performances that rival Broadway, West End and Vegas.
Entertainment That’s As Good As Broadway.
SOLSTICE the Show
Solstice the Show is a European-style theatrical circus about the 13th constellation looking for his rightful place among the stars.
Pulse follows a central character, the “Rhythm Man”, in his explorations of the musical pulse that drives the world to dance.
The songs from Broadway and West End musicals are performed live on stage by the cast as they reminisce their favorite performances after their last performance in an old historic theater.
