Mike Tyson Will Bring His Undisputed Truth to the U.K.
By Michael Gioia
Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, Mike Tyson's one-man show chronicling the ups and downs of his life and career as a champion heavyweight boxer that was seen on Broadway in summer 2012 and was followed by a U.S. tour, will launch a U.K. tour March 21, 2014.
Produced on Broadway by James L. Nederlander, and directed by Spike Lee in its Broadway run, the U.K. tour will play March 21-22 at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, March 25 at the Clyde Auditorium in Glasgow and March 26 at the Manchester O2 Apollo in Manchester.
"After a successful run at the MGM in Las Vegas, on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre with Spike Lee and across the U.S. on tour with Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, I'm excited to take the show abroad and share it with my fans across the globe," said Tyson in a statement. "Undisputed Truth is my story — I'm giving my all and I'm proud to take the show internationally. I can't wait to see the European fans at the shows."
Undisputed Truth, according to press notes, "is a rare, personal look inside the life and mind of one of the most feared men ever to wear the heavyweight crown. Directed by Academy Award nominee Spike Lee, this riveting one-man show goes beyond the headlines, behind the scenes and between the lines to deliver a must-see theatrical knockout."
Created by Adam Steck, CEO of SPI Entertainment, Undisputed Truth is presented by James L. Nederlander, directed by Spike Lee, written by Kiki Tyson, executive-produced by Mike Tyson, Kiki Tyson and Adam Steck and originally directed by Randy Johnson
