Tickets are now on sale for the American debut and Los Angeles premiere of the international skating spectacular “2010 All That Skate LA,” coming to STAPLES Center Saturday, October 2nd at 7:00 PM, and Sunday, October 3rd at 3:00 PM. Featuring the reigning Olympic Champion Yuna Kim, and the most decorated skater in U.S. history, Michelle Kwan, the show boasts an unprecedented cast of Olympic and World Champions.
Kim and Kwan, figure skating’s ultimate “royalty,” will combine their incomparable talents for two unforgettable performances. The special event marks the first performance by Yuna Kim in the United States following her stunning 2010 Vancouver Olympics victory and an eagerly awaited return to the ice for the legendary Kwan who has not performed for an American audience in over four years.
Unlike any ice show ever seen before, “2010 All That Skate LA” features a cast list that is a veritable who’s who in the skating world. Representing the first time Olympic Champions in three disciplines will share the same ice since the Vancouver Winter Games, stars include 2010 Olympic Pair Champions Shen Xue & Zhao Hongbo (China); 2010 Olympic Dance Champions Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir (Canada); Olympic Silver Medalists and Four-Time World Medalists Tanith Belbin & Ben Agosto (USA); World Chamption Brian Joubert (France); Two-time World Champions and Olympic Bronze Medalists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy (Germany); Three-time U.S. Champion Johnny Weir (USA), and more.
The show’s riveting presentation hits the mark just like the skaters. A huge LED screen built into the multi-tiered set heightens the artistry and excitement with vivid and alluring imagery. Contemporary music, laser lights and theatrical staging, embolden the skaters with a freedom that is contagious to the audience. The show extends beyond the boundaries of figure skating. During one fast-paced production, a group of bboys join the skaters in a mesmerizing battle of one-upmanship that showcases the similarities between dance and skating. Another showstopper is the live performance by Korean singing sensation Younha.
The original production set box office records with a summer showcase in Korea. Now audiences in America will have an opportunity to see for themselves all that makes “2010 All That Skate LA” so different from other skating shows.
