Cirque du Soleil is releasing an official statement following the news of their filing for bankruptcy protection and plan to rebuild the company.
The entertainment took to Twitter, saying:
“As we move forward, we know that you will have questions and we will continue to share information with you. If you already have tickets, these remain valid. For all other questions, please refer to the FAQ section of our website.”
The company also attached the photo below:
The FAQ section of their website elaborates on the current state of the company during the pandemic:
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group and the worldwide entertainment industry in an unprecedented way. Border closures, gathering bans and social distancing regulations have kept us from doing what we all thrive to do for millions of fans around the globe every day.
Because of the tremendous financial impact of the health crisis on the company and the fact that we have no clear timeline on when we will be allowed to get back on stage, we have no choice but to take a pause for a little while. This will allow us to build a more resilient and viable organization that will be able to face the uncharted territory brought about by COVID-19. We can’t wait for the moment we are gathered together again.
Cirque du Soleil was working on a new show, “Drawn to Life” to debut at Disney Springs this year. The project has been put on pause for now.
