BEN Around Philly airs every Saturday morning at 7am on 95.7 BEN-FM and is sponsored by The Fillmore Philadelphia.
On this week's episode, Lydia Harper and Patrick Osteen from Cirque Du Soleil TORUK and Matt and Kristen's CHIPS Interview with Dax Shepard and Michael Peña.
Crossing off another item on her bucket list, Kristen had the chance to catch her first Cirque Du Soleil show this past Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. Cirque Du Soleil: TORUK - The First Flight runs now through Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center, and it's inspired by James Cameron's Avatar. The show combines cutting edge visuals, music, acrobatics, and puppetry to bring you the world (and even language) of Pandora. Two members of the cast stop by the BEN studios to talk TORUK - Lydia Harper, one of the acrobats in the show and one of the show's puppeteers, Patrick Osteen. Hear all about the show, plus insider info on its effects, costumes, makeup and more. Find more info HERE and buy tickets at www.WellsFargoCenterPhilly.com.
