Daniel Lamarre is not ready to pink-slip the clowns and acrobats in Cirque du Soleil.
“I think the challenge for us is each show has to be distinctive, to have new ideas to apply to acrobatics,” Cirque’s CEO and president said this past week in an interview in the company’s Las Vegas headquarters. “We’re not saying no, forever. But now, our clientele looking for acrobatic shows is very well served.”
… Cirque never considered reassessing its staging of “MJ One”: Lamarre answered, “No, no,” when asked if the explosive HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland” had initiated discussion of pulling the Jackson tribute show from Mandalay Bay.
