Bill Clinton was President when Chicago native Michael Flatley created and launched Lord of the Dance.
Fifteen years later, the world’s highest grossing Irish Dance show is still selling out arenas and theatres around
the world. Generations of audiences - more than 60 million people from 68 countries - have seen Lord of the
Dance. Presented by Magic Arts & Entertainment and Global Entertainment Group, the Lord of the Dance tour
will perform one night only at the Fabulous Fox Theatre on April 5 at 8 p.m.
Lord of the Dance is a classic tale of good versus evil, based on Irish folklore that brings a passionate love story
to life. Flatley, along with Dance Director Marie Duffy-Pask, hand picked the cast of over 40 dancers; each has
achieved individual recognition as a national or worldwide dance champion. Described by the New York Post as
"fascinating, rewarding and above all, entertaining," and by the Los Angeles Times as "a showpiece
extravaganza," Lord of the Dance is a mesmerizing blend of traditional and modern Celtic music and dance.
The story is based upon mythical Irish folklore as Don Dorcha, Lord of Darkness, challenges the ethereal lord
of light, the Lord of the Dance. Battle lines are drawn, passions ignite and a love story fueled by the dramatic
leaps and turns of dancers’ bodies begins to build against a backdrop of Celtic rhythm. The action is played out
over 21 scenes on a grand scale of precision dancing, dramatic music, colorful costumes and state-of-the-art
staging and lighting.
