Mike Tyson's one-man autobiographical show, "Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth," is headed to Broadway's Longacre Theater for a six-night stand this summer. The run begins on July 31 and lasts through August 5. The show, from director Spike Lee, delves into Iron Mike's victories in the ring and his setbacks outside of it.
"This is what me and my wife wanted to do, this is what we decided to do after I gave up drugs and being a pig," Tyson told Metro.Us. "I'm born to do this stuff."
"It is an honor to work with Spike Lee," he added in a statement. "I have always admired his work. Sharing the highlights and lowlights of my life with New York is especially important to me as I was born and raised in Brooklyn."
"Undisputed Truth" is the Broadway debut for both Tyson and Lee. The show previously ran in Las Vegas. Tickets range from $75-$199.
