Mortal Kombat: Live Tour was a martial art theatrical stage show featuring characters and sound from the Mortal Kombat series, along with laser light effects on stage. The plot was based on three fighters rescuing their friends and retrieving a magic amulet from the master of Outworld, Shao Kahn, in order to save the Earth.

Show Summary

The show debuted at Radio City Music Hall in New York on September 14, 1995, followed by a 200 city road trip into 1996. The show replicated on stage the martial arts and moves from the Mortal Kombat video games, mixing them with dancing and music. Lines were pre-recorded and used to demonstrate the official sound effects from the games, though there was no dismemberments, decapitations or Fatalities visible in the show. The audience participated by yelling "Run!" or "Kick him!" as part of the live action.

Production Notes

  • As part of the show, the actors instructed the audience to buy Mortal Kombat amulets at the concession to stand to save the Earth. However, the tour merchandising team failed to actually manufacture said amulets.[citation needed]
  • Joseph Acavedo (Kano) did not speak English at the time of the tour's run.[citation needed]
  • Hakim Alston (Jax) portrayed an Outworld warrior who was defeated by Liu Kang (Robin Shou) in the original Mortal Kombat movie a year earlier.
  • Fight coordinator Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa also appeared in the film, playing Shang Tsung.
  • The laser visual effects were produced by Laser Fantasy International of Seattle, and were operated by Dave Haskell and Chris Thornberry. For these effects, a medium frame Spectra Physics and a 40 watt laser scope were used along with a custom fiber system.
