Usher Joins Off-Broadway Show, 'Fuerza Bruta'
Usher is one busy man. Aside from working on his seventh studio album, "Looking For Myself," and locked in to play Sugar Ray Leonard in his biopic, "Hands of Stone," Usher is returning to the theatre stage. The singer is set to guest star in the off-Broadway show, "Fuerza Bruta," for two performances on April 28 (7pm and 10pm) in NYC. He will take the lead role as Running Man, performing along side Daniel Case, Lauren Gibbs, John Hartzell, Brooke Miyasaki, Kira Morris and Holly Shunkey.
"Fuerza Bruta" -- which translates to "brute force" -- is a non-verbal production, but it is far from silent. Filled with bright lights and high energy, the show combines aerial imagery, acrobatics, and dance. The high-sensory performance also includes interactive staging that encourages viewers to participate in the proceedings.
The show, created by Diqui James, Gaby Kerpel, Alejandro Garcia, and Fabio Daquila, is currently on an open-ended run at New York City's Daryl Roth Theatre that began in October of 2007.
Tickets are on sale now for $150. Fans can also purchase VIP tickets for $200. The pricier tickets come with a "Fuerza Bruta" t-shirt, a special edition program signed by the "Climax" singer, and digital download of "Looking For Myself" (June 12).
