Cirque du Soleil is closing the curtain on one of its Las Vegas Strip productions.
The company announced Monday that it would permanently shutter “Zumanity,” performed at the New York-New York hotel and casino.
That leaves five other Cirque productions on the Strip, all of which have had their contracts extended, according to a press release.
More than 7,700 shows were held. The last performance was on March 14, the statewide shutdown took effect in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Anyone with tickets can receive a refund at the original point of purchase.
Cirque says its other shows at MGM properties – “O,” “The Beatles LOVE,” “Michael Jackson ONE” and “KÀ” – all have new contract extensions, as does “Mystère” at Treasure Island.
“We’re grateful to the cast, crew and team at Cirque for having created something very special,” George Kliavkoff, president of entertainment & sports for MGM Resorts, said in the release. “We look forward to sharing plans for new entertainment programming at the New York-New York Theater in the months ahead.”
Cirque says it will determine a date for reopening its shows based on the safety of performers and guests, as well as the ability to operate at a profit.
