Already today, we have learned that Broadway will remain closed through January of 2021. Now, Cirque du Soleil, the prominent international circus company, has filed for bankruptcy protection, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Cirque du Soleil has been a mainstay at Disney World since 1998 when La Nouba first premiered at what at the time was Downtown Disney. The show played its final performance in 2017. Since then, it was announced that a new Cirque du Soleil show, Drawn to Life, would be the new resident show in Disney Springs.

Drawn to Life was slated to begin previews in March with an official opening in April. Since Disney closed temporarily amidst the global health crisis, those opening plans were put on pause and no new dates have been announced.


Cirque du Soleil, which was founded in Quebec in 1984, has also been a longtime staple of the Las Vegas strip, with several shows in residency in the city since 1993. Other shows have toured around the globe in arenas and under large big-top tents. Cirque du Soleil’s residency in Disney World is one of the few long-term homes the company has had outside of Las Vegas.

We will share any news concerning Drawn to Life as we learn more!
