Las Vegas production shows are in chaos right now. Customer preferences are changing and shows of all sizes in Las Vegas are trying to keep up. Shows open and close with regularity so it isn’t much of a surprise that we haven’t seen a big new show lately. Well, that’s about to change.
One of the largest show producers in the world (and Las Vegas), Cirque du Soleil, is stepping back into the ring with a big, new show at Luxor. R.U.N will begin performances on October 24, 2019 and play in the R.U.N Theater at Luxor Hotel and Casino Wednesday through Sunday at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
R.U.N is a unique production show for Las Vegas. The show will use live action performance, cutting-edge technology and multimedia to explore the world of stunts. The premise for the show is unique.
Desert at dawn. A chapel.
A gangland wedding is abruptly interrupted.
A guy is running for his life.
What has he done? What is it worth risking his life for?
Follow two clans in this never-ending chase, where a striking bride
leads a series of fast-paced, thrill-a-minute events through the
fictional, dark undergrounds of Las Vegas.
Prepare to clench your teeth and grip your armrest. 75 minutes of pure live action.
Are you in?
The words from the Cirque du Soleil website sound like a movie promo for a reason. The show was written by Robert Rodriguez (“Alita: Battle Angel,” “Sin City,” and more). R.U.N is directed by “The Masked Singer’s” creative director Michael Schwandt and the overall creative direction is by former Cirque employee Stefan Miljevic. Composer Tyler Bates (Dawn of the Dead and 300) provides music for the action-packed show.show.
Daniel Lamarre, President, and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group said, “R.U.N is very different from the other shows within the Cirque du Soleil portfolio. With R.U.N, we will reinvent the concept of a thriller, drawing inspiration from action movies and graphic novels. This action-packed live performance happening in front of and around the audience will offer a new form of entertainment to a more diversified Las Vegas guest. We are really excited to bring this unique and edgy concept to Luxor.”
