Cirque du Soleil to debut new show

David Shiner at work on new stage production

David Shiner (“Fool Moon”) is at work on a new Cirque du Soleil show, rumored to be trying out in Chicago later this year before it heads to Gotham for a multiple-month run at the Beacon Theater.

New stage production will reportedly be written by Laurence O’Keefe (“Legally Blonde”), although Madison Square Garden Entertainment, which owns the Beacon, would only confirm that for one of several shows being developed by Cirque, Shiner (also helmer of Cirque’s “Kooza”) is at work on a new offering about vaudeville. No venues or dates were announced.

MSG Entertainment already has teamed with Cirque on “Wintuk,” the annual holiday outing at MSG’s WaMu Theater.
