LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — "R.U.N" by Cirque du Soleil at the Luxor hotel-casino will permanently close on March 8.

"R.U.N was the collaboration of an extraordinary group; however, the production ultimately did not find an audience that could support it, and we've made the difficult decision to close," said Eric Grilly, senior vice president of resident show division.

"After carefully considering multiple creative options to enhance the production, we determined the time and resources necessary to implement those changes proved to be too big to overcome," Grilly said.

Guests holding tickets past March 8 will be refunded at the original point of purchase, according to the company.

"With R.U.N, we pushed beyond the boundaries of our own DNA and brand to create a unique emotional and compelling form of entertainment. Unfortunately, the fan response was not what we had hoped for," said Yasmine Khalil, chief executive producer for Cirque du Soleil.

"R.U.N" was the first live-action thriller produced by Cirque du Soleil and debuted in October 2019.
