The opening performance was held Friday, May 31, where celebrity supporters and fans danced in their seats and cheered on the masked men known for their creative moves and captivating energy.
Opening night attendees included Randy Jackson, creator of MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” – the show that catapulted the Jabbawockeez to fame in 2008 . Other special guests included Holly Madison, Chad Hugo (The Neptunes and N.E.R.D.), Nonito Donaire (world champion boxer), and Shannon Lee (daughter of Bruce Lee).
A celebration of imagination, “PRiSM” takes audiences on a journey of dance, music and inspiration. The show is a dynamic mix of awe-inspiring choreography, enchanting storylines and stunning special effects, forming a production that challenges audiences to embrace the unexpected.
