Hosting the event, which benefits Senate Majority 2016, are Senate President Andy Gardiner, Majority Leader Bill Galvano, and state Sens. Lizbeth Benacquisto, Joe Negron and Jack Latvala.

Dixon writes that title comes from the French phrase faire la nouba, which roughly translates “to party, to live it up.” The Cirque Du Soleil website calls the show “where the mundane meets the marvelous … an unforgettable journey into a world at once threatening and exhilarating, frightening and familiar.” Much like politics.
