Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, an autobiographical solo show from infamous boxer Mike Tyson, has extended its Broadway. Directed by Spike Lee, the show was originally scheduled to play six performances at the Longacre Theatre, from July 31 through August 5. It will now run through August 12.
Undisputed Truth chronicles many aspects of Tyson's life including his battle with drug abuse, bankruptcy, a 1992 rape conviction that resulted in a three-year prison term, his conversion to Islam and his prolific boxing career. The show first played Las Vegas' MGM Grand in April.
Tyson has quite a history of playing himself on screen. He made a cameo as himself in the 2009 comedy hit The Hangover, as well as its 2011 sequel, and has also played himself in films and TV series such as Entourage, Play It To the Bone, When Will I Be Loved and Rocky Balboa. Undisputed Truth will be his Broadway debut.
