The Cirque du Soleil show Banana Shpeel will now begin New York City performances at the Beacon Theatre on April 29, with the run scheduled to conclude on August 29.

As previously announced, the show has been undergoing major revisions since its debut in Chicago. Banana Shpeel is now being billed as under the "new management" of Schmelky Productions, to highlight the involvement of Marty Schmelky, a character within the show. The production will showcase dance, comedy, and circus arts.

David Shiner will continue with Banana Shpeel as writer and director, with an updated cast and creative team to be announced at a later date.
