Cirque du Soleil/Criss Angel Show Coming to LuXor

Yes folks, you asked for it - you got it, yet another Cirque du Soleil show sets up shop at another MGM Mirage property, this time LuXor will play host.

Notable comments from the video press conference was LuXor President and COO Felix Rappaport calling LuXor "The Pyramid" as well as summarizing LuXor's plans to upgrade shows, dining, clubs and the rest of the stuff.

Good fit? Yeah... LuXor and Criss Angel are both creepy and the mystery/magic angle will be marketed to the max. Do we need another Cirque du Soleil show? Like a hole in the head, but people still go see em.

From the press release:

Always on the lookout for the next artistic challenge, Cirque du Soleil is working with Criss to fuse his revolutionary illusions and mind-blowing artistry with acrobatics, dance, puppetry, music and poetry to tell a story, taking audiences on a bizarre and fascinating journey.

Re-inventing the traditional magic show has been a long-standing desire of Guy Laliberté, Guide and Founder of Cirque du Soleil. Five years of extensive research and development were spent exploring the world of magic and how to re-define the experience.

The crucial element, a young, edgy and talented artist and mystifier, was found in Criss Angel. With his incredibly unique creativity, Criss is now working with the experienced team of Cirque du Soleil creators led by Director Serge Denoncourt to bring this dream to life.

Avenue Q was a puppet show and now its gone. *sniff*



Comments & Discussion:

i love how the press release knows that this is all boring and stresses "the crucial element, a young, edgy and talented artists and mystifier..." perhaps they recognize that these adjectives are the opposite of how people feel about CdS?
