SECOND MICHAEL JACKSON SHOW

Director Jamie King is now working on Cirque du Soleil’s second Michael Jackson show, which becomes a resident attraction at Mandalay Bay one year from now. (Jamie directed the first, “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour,” which had its world premiere at Cirque headquarters in Montreal last fall and was at Mandalay for much of December.) He talked candidly with me about the new show’s progress.

”That will be a different feel completely, altogether. I am already excited, but not yet confident. I’ll get there, though. Right now, I’m just excited. I am excited about being here at Mandalay Bay and doing the theatrical version of Michael’s show. I’ve already walked the theater. It’s under construction, but for now it looks a mess. It has much potential, and I am excited for the future.

“There is no official name yet for the show, so it’s just the Michael Jackson 2013 show. We are in pre-production now, and at the end of September, early October, I’ll be relocating to Montreal for about three to four months. I’ll stay there through the holidays, and then we’ll all come to Vegas. I will live here for a while.

“It will be completely different from the ‘Immortal’ show -- completely. This will be a theater show, not an arena production. The entire 90-plus minutes will be different from what you experienced with the touring show. I’ve done a whole new concept and theme. It involves many more characters and acrobatics. It will be much more fantastical and theatrical, with less arena rock ’n’ roll. However, you will get as much of Michael Jackson’s music as we had in the touring show. I’ve kept some magical moments from the touring show I felt could translate here -- some bits and bobs, as you’d say!

“I had to create something new, though, because the touring show will go on for a long, long time overseas while we have the permanent show here. I’ve sort of shot my self in the foot by having two shows for Michael Jackson, and both must be different -- and they will be.”

Interesting!  I went to the Immortal show when it was in Mandalay Bay in Vegas this past December and I absolutely loved it.  It would be great to see a different MJ show the next time I go there which most likely will be next year or the year after.  I like that the new show will incorporate more acrobatics because that's the best part of the Cirque shows, it's amazing to see what the human body is capable of.

Interesting  that he says
*Preparing two shows   FOR    Michael Jackson *   
and not About MJ or his message or in memory of his art....
Is I reading too much into it?

This is interesting! Thanks for posting.
As the Immortal tour shows will go on world tour, it looks well-thought-out plan to keep Michael Jackson "alive" in his shows. This 2nd show will be different to re-attract the audience who already got the "taste" of the Immortal tour shows, I can imagine they want to see more.
I haven't seen an Immortal tour show YET, but...I will be there in London on October 19th. Finally :icon_razz:

@skyways: interesting observation indeed! "FOR" instead of "about" or "of"

L.O.V.E.

I saw the show in Portland Oregon with my daughter. We loved it. You will have to look me up Andrea when you come back to Vegas. We will have a blast, I can feel it!  :icon_e_wink:

Actually Im_convinced, I thought the next time I go to Vegas I would send you a message to let you know I was going!  And I definitely will, that would be so awesome! I have a feeling we'll get along famously.

Thank you Emulik :) I truly hope for you the same. I have wished to see that show so much. There's plenty of time to enjoy in advance :Michael_Jackson_dancing_smile and I've got plenty of time to find out the transfer from Gatwick, nearest hotel to O2 etc and make some sightseeing plans for the next day.

I found some more news about the "MJ 2013" show (interesting title, isn't it? :icon_e_wink:):
