Irish dance behemoth Michael Flatley is to return to Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games for 16 performances only later this spring, as the show continues its London season at the Dominion Theatre.
The world renowned dance star will perform on Friday and Saturday evenings from 8 May to 27 June in the show he created.
Flatley had been expected to make his final London appearances in the show earlier in the run, but had to cancel many appearances when his father died in March.
Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games, Flatley’s latest revamp of his world-conquering Irish dance spectacular, returned to the London stage in March following a hugely successful season at the London Palladium in 2014.
Featuring a cast of 40 performers it tells a classic story of good versus evil drawn from Irish folklore. Like Doctor Who with rhythm, the eponymous noble travels through time striving to protect his people from the Dark Lord, Don Dorcha.
The latest incarnation of the show uses holographs, dancing robots, world champion acrobats and phenomenal Irish dancers to tell its mythical tale. When it played at the Palladium last year Official London Theatre’s Charlotte Marshall described it as: “a night of dazzling dance that brings the razzle dazzle of a Las Vegas show to the West End.”
Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games is due to run at the Dominion until 5 September. It will be followed from 24 October by seasonal family treat Elf. The musical stage adaptation of the hit Christmas film stars Ben Forster, Kimberley Walsh and Joe McGann.
