Mad Apple by Cirque du Soleil Premieres at New York-New York Hotel
Mad Apple – the newest Las Vegas production from live entertainment leader Cirque du Soleil – recently celebrated its mad debut at New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Mad Apple is a high-energy mix of comedy, music, dance, and high-flying acrobatics that delivers New York’s wildest night out under the Vegas lights.
For the first time in a Cirque du Soleil show there will be comedy, with Mad Apple’s headlining comedians Brad Williams and Harrison Greenbaum, and freestyle comedy rapper Chris Turner who will entertain guests with on-the-spot, often rowdy improvs.
Featuring a live musical tour-de-force celebrating the best of NYC music past and present led by musical director Xharlie Black, five lead vocalists and a five-piece band; six daring acrobatic acts; and 48 cast members from around the world, the show blurs the lines between circus, live entertainment and New York nightlife culture.
Forty-five minutes before the show’s curtain rises, guests are welcomed into the theater for a pre-show party with a modern-day Studio 54 vibe complete with boozy libations at the DownStage and UpStage Bars, flair bartenders, up-close magicians and entertainers, and live music.
Mad Apple is performed Friday through Tuesday at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., with no shows on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
