Cirque Du Soleil Permanently Closing Show On Vegas Strip

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL PERMANENTLY CLOSES "ZUMANITY" AFTER A 17-YEAR RUN IN LAS VEGAS DUE TO THE PANDEMIC

(CNN) – Cirque Du Soleil is permanently closing the curtains on Zumanity after a 17-year run on the Las Vegas strip.

The company made the announcement on Monday.

Cirque Du Soleil had six shows in Las Vegas before COVID-19 forced all of them to close in March.

The company filed for bankruptcy in June.

In 2003, Zumanity represented a departure for Cirque, in that it featured nudity and was designed for adults only.

Under Nevada’s guidelines, none of the Cirque shows have been able to re-open, but Zumanity is the first to close permanently.

More than seven million theater-goers saw Zumanity since its debut.

Cirque Du Soleil says it will continue to evaluate the situation to see when its other shows can possibly resume.
