Live Nation and Michael Flatley present the Broadway and New York premiere of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, created, directed by and starring Flatley, which officially opened Nov. 10 at 7:30 PM following previews that began Nov. 7 at the Lyric Theatre.
The limited eight-week engagement, which follows a sold-out London run, will continue through Jan. 3, 2016. The Broadway run also serves as Flatley's swan song as a performer.
Flatley is featured in a special appearance at the end of each evening's performance. Performers also include Morgan Comer, James Keegan and Cathal Keaney in the title role of the "Lord of the Dance."
The show, according to press notes, features "exciting and ground-breaking new technology, including holographs, special effects lighting, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and of course the greatest team of Irish Dancers in the world."
The score is composed by Gerard Fahy.
Flatley will not perform at matinee performances. Due to prior commitments he will not perform at the evening performances on Nov. 18, Nov. 19, Dec. 4 and Dec. 5.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, which recently ended its limited engagement at the Dominion Theatre, will also appear in the West End again, this time at the Playhouse Theatre, Oct. 10, 2015-Jan. 3, 2016.
Tickets for the Broadway engagement are available at ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000. The Lyric Theatre is located at 213 West 42nd Street.
As previously reported, Cirque du Soleil's Paramour will begin previews April 16, 2016, at Broadway's Lyric Theatre, recent home of the revival of On the Town. Opening night is scheduled for May 25.
