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.
