Mad Apple is a delicious Cirque du Soleil cocktail of high-flying acrobatics, music,
dance, comedy, and magic celebrating the city that never sleeps.
Featuring comedian Brad Williams, freestyle rapper Chris Turner and vocalist
Xharlie Black amongst the incredibly talented cast of 39 people, Mad Apple is
a nonstop New York thrill ride from the moment guests enter the theater. From
pre-show magic and boozy libations at the stunning stage bar, to the band playing
hits inspired by NYC's most famous musicians and composers, Mad Apple will blur the
lines between circus, live entertainment and New York nightlife culture.
"Mad Apple [delivers] a night of joy and entertainment with the thrilling
backdrop of New York City," said Simon Painter, Mad Apple concept co-creator and
executive producer. "We've taken inspiration from the city's rich musical history,
legendary comedy scene and unrivaled nightlife, and combined it with the wow factor
of Cirque du Soleil to create an experience that will feel like a giant party from
start to finish." Mad Apple is the first Cirque du Soleil production in creative
collaboration with Painter and Neil Dorward, the show's co-creator and director.
Painter was the creator behind several celebrated productions including The
Illusionists; his company The Works was purchased by Cirque in February 2019.
Featuring six brash acts and a dynamic makeup of musicians, dancers, comedians,
magicians, and circus performers, Mad Apple rewrites the script on Las Vegas
entertainment. Each act is like a snapshot from a different nocturnal side of New
York, brought to life by underground stars, high-flying acrobats, street performers,
up-and-coming entertainers, and the biggest musical hits to come out of the City.
Step into the crowds, up to the bar, and out into the New York night of your life
with Mad Apple.
