The Cirque du Soleil theater at Disney Springs is being repainted ahead of its planned reopening later this year.

Painting crews are using high-reach lifts to begin prepping for the paint work.

"Drawn to Life,"  that was set to open in Spring 2020 at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World, and was just days away from opening when the COVID-19 shutdown began. Asked recently by the LA Times about "Drawn to Life," Cirque CEO Daniel Lamarre said, "We should be able to open sometime in the fall."

We understand that limited rehearsals have been taking place among small groups of performers at the Cirque theater in Disney Springs.

Will definitely be getting tickets when we go to WDW over Thanksgiving this year! I remember seeing the advertisements for 'La Nouba' back in the 90s and desperately wanting to go, but had never gotten the chance. Glad Cirque shows are returning to DS!

National Film Board documentary when Cirque was itty bitty back in the late 80s on their first North American tour. https://www.nfb.ca/film/cirque_american_odyssey/

Any idea if they're fully staffed yet for box office and the cirque store? I've been stalking Cirque jobs page for weeks.

The projection mapping in this show will really blow people away. I'm happy to see folks so enthused about this new production :)
