Criss Angel Bio
Criss Angel collaborated w/ Cirque du Soleil to create Criss Angel Believe, a live show at the Luxor Las Vegas hotel in Las Vegas, which stars Criss Angel, who is billed as “co-writer, illusions creator and designer, original concept creator and star.” Angel originally tried to develop the show for a Broadway run, as well as other casinos. Eventually, what became Believe came together when he entered a partnership with Cirque du Soleil and the Luxor’s parent company, MGM Mirage, financed the show with $100 million. After several delays, the show was set for a Gala opening on October 31, 2008, with preview shows in late September. The initial preview was not well received, with thoroughly negative audience reactions. The show opened to equally harsh reviews which cited a lack of the magic Angel is known for, as well as a confusing and uninteresting theme. Reviewers felt neither Angel nor Cirque du Soleil were able to perform to their capabilities.
