Continuing the relationship with the MGM Resorts International family, the crew is bringing an original concept to Luxor with a production featuring all new everything including a state-of-the-art set, cutting-edge technology, inventive costumes and the latest music combined with a specially designed, custom-built theater.
Renee West, president and COO of Luxor, said, "The Jabbawockeez show is a one-of-a-kind experience that deserves a unique space to truly highlight the production's innovative performance elements. In its brand new theater, the dance crew will bring unparalleled energy and fresh creativity to the resort, adding to our exceptional entertainment lineup."
One year in the making, the 830-seat theater features amphitheater style seating, creating an intimate feel for each guest in the house. The theater also features top-of-the-line acoustics to complement the musical artistry of the show. Blending chart topping hits and original tracks by JBWKZ Records artist, The Bangerz, Jabbawockeez will enchant audiences with electrifying energy and beats that transcend generational boundaries, leaving guests of all ages dancing in their seats.
