After the incident between Perez Hilton and Criss Angel at Friday's "Believe" performance I requested a comment from both Angel's publicist and Cirque's PR department. Until now Cirque has maintained that Angel's behavior was not their responsibility. But, crucially, until now that behavior has been largely confined to off stage.
"Along with our partner, MGM MIRAGE, Cirque du Soleil wishes to extend an apology to any audience member that may have been offended by Criss Angel's inappropriate and disrespectful remarks at Friday night's performance of Believe."
And, unlike every other statement about "Believe" issued by Cirque, it is interesting to note that this one did not actually call the production by its official title, "CRISS ANGEL Believe," but just "Believe." Omen? Or, maybe just past time for Angel's Checkers speech? (photo by Sarah Gerke)
