Cirque du Soleil has confirmed that a new show inspired by the work of Michael Jackson is coming to Las Vegas this year.
Called "Michael Jackson ONE," the King of Pop-themed event will start preview performances on May 23, and will officially premiere June 29 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
"Michael Jackson ONE", written and directed by Jamie King, is described as "a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius." The story focuses on "four misfits" who embark on a "transformative adventure ... guided and inspired by [Jackson's] music ... By journey's end, they will personify Michael's agility, courage, playfulness and love."
This marks the second MJ-inspired show from Cirque du Soleil, as they're also currently showing "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour," which also uses the pop icon's music.
General ticket sales for "Michael Jackson ONE" begin March 7.
Tickets range from $62-$180 per person. Rip off or a good show?
I haven't seen the current MJ presentation of CDS, but critique hasn't been good! I guess they're re-vamping & trying again! Better luck next time & hope MJ's kids benefit from the proceeds!!
We've read good critic write-ups on Immortal. You will never get 100% positive verdicts on anything from every critic, anyway!
You have critics giving less than good verdicts for films and music that other critics and members of the public actually like.
At the end of the day, a critic is basically no different than any of us...They have a perception that forms an opinion, just like us ...Only difference is, they get *paid to give theirs!
what an embarrassment to michae jackson...how he deals with it nobody will ever ever know
Tomorrow is The Walking Dead time. I won't get to stay up and watch it but will see it Monday. Maybe it will be a great episode. Happy weekend time to YOU : )
If it is a Vegas show, you know it will be good.
My favorite song of his was "da jigggaabooo dance"
I should do some shows in Vegas. They could bill me as "The King Of Poop"
A poop spectacular – I'd go see it!
