Edge

EDGE from Physical Magic® premiered in 2010, coinciding with the launch of the Celebrity Eclipse, the third Solstice-Class vessel from Celebrity Cruise Lines finished its multi-year performance run in 2015. EDGE was the third spectacle production from Physical Magic to be performed on a cruise vessel.

With over 300 performances, more than 400,000 spectators, two engagement extensions, and over 6 years at sea, EDGE has thrilled audience members around the world with its unusual blend of high-impact video imagery, music, aerial stunts, special effects and dance.

EDGE from Physical Magic® has been completely retooled for extended run theater performances and can be seen in casino venues, theaters and custom showrooms around the world.

We hope you have a chance to see the show!

The most popular artists are trailblazers of sound, culture, fashion, performance and art.

Edge is a fusion of dance, pop, performance art, aerial artistry and breathtaking imagery following these popular artists, pushing the limits of entertainment to the edge.

Backed by lighting and video worthy of some of the largest pop tours, the show is an exploration of some of the greatest sounds of our time.

EDGE from Physical Magic® is available for booking for multi-week engagements worldwide. The show has been designed to perform in a theater but can also be presented in various other types of performance spaces. The show uses unique LED media during the performance and should be performed in indoor venues with blackout capability or at night in outdoor venues.

EDGE is part of the 3 show “Eclipse Package” from POET Theatricals. The other productions that are included with the “Eclipse Package” are ECLIPSE (a European cirque-style theatrical circus) and OVATIONS (a musical theater tribute production).

Show packages from POET Theatricals allow venues to maximize production impact and reduce expense by allowing presentation of three dramatically different shows utilizing one performing cast and one preproduction expenditure. Each of the POET Theatricals’ show “packages” represents over 2.5 million dollars in capital expenditure investment in the production’s costumes, sets, flying automation, video and music.

Show packages are perfect for venues that have repeat customers (casinos with strong local market draw for example), guests that are residing in the venue (vacation destination resort hotels), or travelers that are moving from place to place with the venue (cruise ships). The shows can rotate delivering different entertainment content for repeat guests.

POET Theatricals has the ability to “mix and match” various show packages depending on audience demographics.

SHIPPING REQUIREMENTS

Shipping requirements can be scaled depending on show size and scope of technical infrastructure required for the performance. The show can adapt to existing staging, lighting and rigging layouts. POET Theatricals’ goal is to reduce the preproduction cost and installation of the show as much as possible, and we work with presenters to trim these expenses.

Examples of shipping requirements are:

This includes all of the soft goods (theatrical drops) used in the production and staging of the performance. NOTE that the LED wall is not included in this version of the show.

Full Set The “Full Set” production includes the entire hard set of the show and the “soft set”. This version includes all of the stair units, multi level sets, LED wall, and other stage elements. This version travels in two 53’ trucks or two 40’ and one 20’ oceangoing containers (for overseas productions).

Turn-key Our “turn-key” production package adds all lighting, sound, venue required soft goods, venue rigging and staging for the show in a complete turn-key package. This additional technical support travels in 1 or 2, 53-foot tractor trailers, depending on the level of production support required for the venue.
