It's not Cirque du Soleil, but Cirque Productions has carved out its niche on tour, with Cirque Ingenieux, Cirque Dreams Coobrila, Cirque Dreams Illumination and other circus spectacles. The latest production, Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy, which had a brief Broadway run last year, plays Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg Tuesday through Feb. 8. The Los Angeles Times called it "a whiz-bang, family-friendly spectacle. . . . Its jungle-delirium setting and Technicolor-gone-wild color scheme (even more vivid in black light) provide the framework for jaw-dropping feats of strength, balance and dexterity.'' $30-$69.
