Mortimer Marks First Cirque du Soleil Performer
to Launch a Headlining Show on the Las Vegas Strip

 

 
 
LAS VEGAS, NV (May 24, 2016) – Las Vegas has long been the magic capitol of the world, featuring an array of diverse magicians ranging from Copperfield to Angel to Penn & Teller, Piff the Magic Dragon and newcomer Mat Franco.  Therefore, it takes a daring, fresh and fearless performer to throw their hat into the mix – and that’s exactly what French export Xavier Mortimer is doing.
After gracing stages in more than 30 countries, and most recently starring in Cirque du Soleil’s acclaimed show Michael Jackson ONE, Mortimer marks the first Cirque performer to launch a headlining show on the Las Vegas Strip.
The production – Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream – is unlike any other in Las Vegas. Audiences enter the Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino only to find themselves immediately transported into Mortimer’s dream world. Along with his unconventional cast of characters, who will make their public debut in the coming weeks, Mortimer takes the audience on an adventure they won’t soon forget.
“I wanted to create a show and experience with a strong sense of wonder and drama, but also mash it up with a universal kind of comedy that everyone will enjoy,” said Mortimer. “I have my hands in every aspect of this production. I created all the acts, I brought the characters to life, I even composed the majority of the music. This is me at my best, and I can’t wait to show everyone what my dream world looks and feels like.”
With illusions and talents that defy simple explanation, the 70-minute performance – directed by fellow Frenchman and international celebrity Alex Goude – poetically unfolds through more than 14 acts. With the wonder of Mary Poppins, the theatrics of Charlie Chaplin, and an array of talents unique to himself, this all-ages production transcends what you thought you knew about Las Vegas entertainment.
At once funny, daring, inspirational and immersive, Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream is the key that opens the door to a hidden world of magic you never knew you were missing.
Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream will perform 6 nights per week (Wednesdays dark) at 7 p.m. in the Sin City Theater beginning June 6, 2016. Tickets will be made available via www.ticketmaster.com.
