Mike Tyson To Debut Onstage In One-man Vegas Show About Himself

Mike Tyson is ready for his close-up as a stage performer, starring in a one-man show about himself set to premiere with a six-night shakedown run next month at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth -- Live on Stage" will run April 13-18 in the 740-seat Hollywood Theatre, offering the man himself telling what it's like to have been feared, reviled and pitied in a career that may be boxing's answer to Sophocles' "Oedipus" cycle.
