(Release) WORLD PREMIERE OF "CIRQUE SHANGHAI EXTREME" AT NAVY PIER POSTPONED
Chicago's Rainy, Windy Weather Forces Delays in Roof Repairs to Pepsi Skyline Stage, Prompting One Week Postponement of Show.
New Opening date: June 29, 2011; Ticket Exchanges or Refunds Offered
CHICAGO (June 16, 2011) - Navy Pier, in conjunction with International Special Attractions, Ltd (ISA) has issued the following statement announcing a one-week postponement of the world premiere of "Cirque Shanghai Extreme":
The exclusive U.S. engagement of this latest death-defying production from the popular Chinese acrobatic troupe is now scheduled to begin Wednesday, June 29, 2011 at 2 p.m. The high number of inclement weather days in Chicago since mid-April has forced delays in roof repairs to the Navy Pier Pepsi Skyline Stage, the 1,500-seat, canopied, open-air theater, prompting the show's postponement from its original June 23 opening date.
"We regret and apologize for any inconvenience caused by this delay, but the safety of our roof and stage workers, the Cirque performers, and our guests is most important," said Marilynn Gardner, Navy Pier General Manager. "We expect better weather after this upcoming weekend will allow us to complete work that will enable the troupe to prepare Pepsi Skyline Stage for what promises to be the most spectacular Cirque Shanghai show that Chicago has ever seen." Tickets remain on sale for all performances from June 29 through Monday, September 5, 2011 (Labor Day). Customers who have purchased "Cirque Shanghai Extreme" tickets for performances from June 23 through June 28, will be able to exchange their tickets for another performance or receive a full refund. Refunds and exchanges will be handled at the point of purchase.
