About the showMichael Flatley’s spectacular Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games has extended its West End run and will continue to wow audiences for 16 performances only at the Playhouse Theatre. Bringing together tradition and innovation, this international Irish dance spectacular explores the age-old battle between good and evil.
With a cast of 40 talented dancers, the show follows a story rooted in Irish folklore that tells of the Lord of the Dance and the battle to protect Planet Ireland from the Dark Lord, Don Dorcha. Told through stunning selections of Irish dance, the story also benefits from a host of modern, big-budget special effects; from holographs and dancing robots to world-class acrobats and lighting tricks.
Dance legend & choreographer, Flatley, is delighted with the opportunity to bring Dangerous Games to London audiences once again: “To be able to extend the show’s run by moving to the very beautiful Playhouse Theatre makes me feel immensely proud of what we’ve achieved. I am delighted that they can continue to perform in this great city”. Flatley personally trained the stars of Dangerous Games (James Keegan, Morgan Corner and Mathew Smith) and even makes an on-stage appearance at the end of selected performances.
Flatley was the first American to be awarded a World Irish Dance Title, aged just 17, and has since choreographed and performed in countless shows that have revolutionised the medium of Irish dance. The international phenomenon, Riverdance, first hit the stage in 1994 and was closely followed by the first incarnation of Lord of the Dance in 1996. Lord of the Dance broke box office records and has since gone from strength to strength, enchanting West End audiences for years.
Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games will open on 10th October 2015 at the Playhouse Theatre and will run there until 3rd January 2016.
