This month, Michael Flatley will make his final stage performances during a special run this fall at the Lyric Theater in on Broadway.

The run brings a re-worked and enhanced version of his signature “Lord of the Dance.” This version, now called “Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games,” has been on the West End stages for the year, but moves to New York for an opening night of November 7th and runs through January 3rd.

Flatley though, won’t be resuming his role in the show’s lead, but will be making special appearances at the end of each evening.

“My legs are in bits right now, but I’ll tell you one thing: When I’m on that Broadway stage I’ll be dancing like I’m a teenager,” Flatley told the Irish Voice.

“It’s been my dream to do Broadway. I couldn’t think of a better way to say goodbye to my fans after all of these years.”

Check out a preview of the show below:

Flatley, who was inducted into the Irish America Hall of Fame in 2011, is now 57 and recently debuted his new paintings at his first solo show in London.
