Don’t Tell Supper Club will end 2018 with “The Greatest Show on Earth,” a New Year’s Eve bash rivaling spectacles seen in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York City.
Complete with magicians and aerialists, there will be a champagne toast, DJs, cash prizes and the best tomahawk beef in the city. The narrative performance will adapt “The Greatest Showman,” the hit musical about the formation of the Barnum and Bailey Circus.
“The show will blow your imagination away,” said Avi Adri, one of Don’t Tell’s owners. “We’re introducing a Hollywood stuntman and former members of Barnum and Bailey’s to Dallas for one special night. These are thousand-dollar acts you can’t find anywhere else.” The noted stuntman is Frank Chapman, who has doubled for several of the Spider-Man actors.
“I’m a Dallas native who went to [the Marines] for a while, and then I moved to L.A. where my dad lives,” said Chapman, reflecting on how his military physique proved conducive to film. “My father forced me to train in acrobatics, and I found a mentor… while working on ‘Spider-Man 3.’
“We will premiere several never-before-seen juggling acts,” said Chapman, “I’ll be performing horizontal juggling, fire juggling, backwards aerials and more.”
