| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Cirque du Soleil has set its sights on vaudeville in its newest — and still unnamed — production that will have its world premiere in Chicago in November. Tickets, $23-$150, for the production, written and directed by David Shiner (“Kooza”), with choreography by Betsy Baytos and Jared Grimes, are now on sale exclusively to Cirque Club members and Chicago Theatre Insiders; visit cirquedusoleil.com or thechicagotheatre.com to join either group and get advance purchase rights to show tickets. Tickets for the general public will go on sale this summer.

The proscenium-style production, with its contemporary spin on the vaudeville variety act stage show era, will settle in at the Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State, for a limited holiday engagement, Nov. 19, 2009 - Jan. 3, 2010.

“MSG Entertainment is excited to partner with Cirque du Soleil once again,” said Jonathan Hochwald, executive vice president productions, MSGE, in a statement. “Our latest production will seek to capture the spirit of vaudeville and variety entertainments, mash it up with contemporary music and technology, and introduce a brand new art form — a reinvention of the live experience as only Cirque du Soleil could achieve.”
