The contemporary circus company has debuted its new production, which it called “a high-energy cocktail of comedy, music, dance and high-flying acrobatics,” at the Big Apple-themed property, operated by MGM Resorts, on the Las Vegas Strip.

Over the show’s 80-minute runtime, audiences are taken on a tour of New York’s five boroughs, with sets inspired by the city’s recognisable landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty and the Chrysler Building.

Mad Apple features a variety of entertainment, including stand-up comedy for the first time in a Cirque du Soleil show, with headlining comedians Brad Williams and Harrison Greenbaum, alongside freestyle comedy rapper Chris Turner.

Live music is also on offer, themed around New York’s musical past and present, and led by musical director Xharlie Black, five lead vocalists and a five-piece band.

“We are thrilled to get the joyous Mad Apple party started in Las Vegas,” said Simon Painter, Mad Apple's Co-Creator and Executive Producer.

“From the moment guests enter the theatre, they are whisked away to one of the most beloved cities in the world with a show that fuses hilarious acts from multiple comedians and daring acrobatics with the entertainment and eclecticism of New York City.”

Mad Apple is performed Friday through Tuesday, with no shows on Wednesdays or Thursdays. There are two shows a night, at 7pm and 9:30pm. Tickets start at $59.

Eric Grilly, Cirque du Soleil President of Resident and Affiliate Show Divisions, said: “Mad Apple is a completely new approach to Cirque du Soleil entertainment.

“It’s an action-packed experience designed for today’s audience, who increasingly want to consume entertainment as they do content – in an exciting, highly compelling and ever-shifting manner.”
