Fathom Events and Cirque du Soleil to bring ‘One Night for One Drop’ to theaters In June

Fathom Events and Cirque du Soleil are partnering to bring the 2016 One Night for ONE DROP event to select U.S. cinemas, featuring a collaboration of performers from each of the eight Cirque du Soleil Vegas shows. In its fourth year in Vegas “One Night for ONE DROP” returned for an electrifying performance in front of a VIP sold-out audience in Las Vegas, featuring GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Leona Lewis and Miles “Baby Boogaloo” Brown from the hit TV sitcom “Black-ish.”

The show is an annual celebration around World Water Day to raise funds and awareness for critical water issues worldwide. Audiences across the U.S. can enjoy this special one-night event in cinemas on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time.

Tickets for “One Night for ONE DROP” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 300 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“We spent months creating a one-night-only production knowing that all of our hard work would culminate in a single performance,” said Artistic Director Hassan El Hajjami. “I am so excited to see our work come back to life in an entirely new way in theaters across the country. It’s going to be extraordinary!”

Captured on March 18, 2016, at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas, “One Night for ONE DROP” is a completely original production featuring renowned guest performers alongside artists from all eight Cirque du Soleil shows on the Las Vegas Strip. To show their continued support for the cause, each show goes dark for one evening to shine the spotlight on this special performance. The central theme of “One Night for ONE DROP” ties to the mission of ONE DROP, an international non-profit dedicated to providing safe water access in developing countries. To extend this one-night of charity, all Cirque du Soleil funds from this cinema presentation will also support ONE DROP and its efforts.

“This is a truly spectacular event and it’s a joy to bring it to the big screen for those who cannot travel to Vegas to see the show in person,” said Fathom Events Vice President of Programming Kymberli Frueh. “Fathom is proud to be a part of an event with such an important message delivered in a truly unique way.”

“Performing in this show was a dream come true,” said Miles Brown. “All Cirque shows have the ability to take your breath away, but this one can also change lives around the world. If you want to experience one of the most exciting Cirque shows ever created while giving back to the community, join us on June 7!”
