Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group has announced a new show at the Luxor titled "R.U.N." The show is described as groundbreaking and the group's first live action thriller. The show will reportedly use live action performances, cutting-edge technology and multimedia to explore the world of stunts.

Audiences will be plunged into a sensory experience where special effects collide with human performance, pushing viewers to the edge of their seats, according to the show producers. Chapter by chapter, guests will be taken through a gritty, cinematic story featuring bold, rebellious and fearless characters. The show will follow two clans in an adrenaline-filled adventure where a striking bride leads a series of fast-paced chases, combat and stunts through the fictional dark underground of Las Vegas.

Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, said, “R.U.N is very different from the other shows within the Cirque du Soleil portfolio. With R.U.N, we will reinvent the concept of a thriller, drawing inspiration from action movies and graphic novels. This action-packed live performance happening in front of and around the audience, will offer a new form of entertainment to a more diversified Las Vegas guest. We are really excited to bring this unique and edgy concept to Luxor.”

R.U.N is the 10th partnership between Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts International.

R.U.N will begin performances on October 24, 2019, and play in the R.U.N Theater at Luxor Hotel and Casino Wednesday through Sunday at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $69 plus tax and applicable fees.
