Irish dancing icon Michael Flatley will make his Broadway debut this November in Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games. Created, directed by, and starring Flatley in his final production as a performer, the show will play the Lyric Theatre beginning November 7 and continue through January 3. Opening night is set for November 10.

Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games comes to Broadway following a sold-out run at London's Dominion Theatre. The production will feature Flatley protégés Morgan Comer, James Keegan, and Cathal Keaney in the title role of the "Lord of the Dance," alongside a cast of accomplished Irish dancers. The show also features groundbreaking new technology, holographs, and dancing robots. Gerard Fahy provides the score.

Flatley is the creator and choreographer of the original Lord of the Dance franchise. During the Broadway run Flatley will make an appearance at the end of each evening performance, except for shows on November 18 and 19, and December 4 and 5. He will not perform during matinees.
