Michael Flatley is to return to the London stage to star in a season of Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games, a new version of a show he first created in 1996 that originally premiered at Dublin's Point Theatre before touring the world.
According to a report in the U.K.'s Daily Mail, he will be part of a troupe of 40 dancers to star in the show (although, says the Mail, "His routine won't be as strenuous as it once was.")
The show will begin performances Sept. 1 at the London Palladium for an eight-week season.
The show will also star Former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, who will play goddess Erin.
Further details are still to be announced. Tickets are not yet on sale.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
