ABOUT Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games

Michael Flatley’s Lord of The Dance: Dangerous Games transfers to the Playhouse Theatre

Due to popular demand and following a stellar run at the Dominion Theatre, Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games is back in London, transferring to the Playhouse Theatre.

Michael Flatley is the creator of international hit dance show Riverdance, and brings his extraordinary show Lord of The Dance: Dangerous Games to the Playhouse Theatre from 10 October 2015 until 24 January 2016.

Lord of the Dance is the extraordinary follow-up show to Riverdance – which is one of the world’s most well-known dance shows featuring Flatley’s hybrid of traditional Irish and contemporary dance.

This epic new staging of his original Lord of the Dance masterpiece, which had its world premiere at the London Palladium in 2014 to enormous audience acclaim and more recently at the Dominion Theatre, features an orchestra, some of the world’s greatest young dancers and performers, plus state of the art lighting and pyrotechnics.

Directed by Michael Flatley, with new music by composer Gerard Fahy, Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games is a truly epic, inspirational night at the theatre.


Based on Irish folklore, Lord of The Dance: Dangerous Games is a classic tale of Good vs. Evil, expressed through the universal language of dance. The story is of the Little Spirit, who travels through time to help the Lord of the Dance protect his people from the evil threat of Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord. As this dark power challenges our hero, the adventure draws you into a mythical universe of love, danger, and desire.


James Keegan and Morgan Comer star as the Lords Of The Dance alongside some of the world’s most outstanding young performers.

NOTE: Michael Flatley does not appear in the show.
