At the press conference for the Broadway debut of his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, directed by Spike Lee and penned by Tyson's wife, Lakiha, "Iron" Mike revealed what may be the show's most appealing element: he doesn't pull any punches. Not about his dire financial circumstances, his tempestuous relationship with his ex-wife, his promiscuity, or even the tiger-stripe tattoo that hugs his left eye like a shredded crescent moon. Now set to grace venues across the country, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth reveals the new Mike, a man who has come to terms with a checkered past that includes family tragedy, incarceration, drug addiction, constant public scrutiny, and an early life spent fighting in some of the country's most rough-and-tumble rings. Dashed with humor and presented with lighthearted, albeit profane, aplomb, Tyson's narrative invites audiences to spend an evening in the ringside seats of his mind, without the fear of being struck by an errant haymaker or dislodged mouth guard.
Fox Theatre, originally opened in 1929, has long been established as a venue for legendary performances, earning induction into the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Domed entryways, walls lined with pastoral murals, intricate chandeliers, and a palette of brilliant gold and crimson hint at the venue's Moorish influences, which eclectically clash with the ordered lines of its Gothic exterior.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
