It was revealed (but not confirmed) last week that Mike Tyson's Las Vegas one-man show, The Undisputed Truth, would be heading to Broadway under Spike Lee's direction.

Today, it's been confirmed in a press conference held by the producers of the show. 

Announced early this morning, Tyson will indeed bring his one-man show to Broadway for a limited, six-night engagement (July 31 to Augugust 5) at the Longacre Theatre.

This will be Spike's Broadway directorial debut (he filmed a stage production Passing Strange; but he's never actually directed a Broadway show before), with James L. Nederlander producing.

"It is an honor to work with Spike Lee... 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. I am thrilled to bring the story of Undisputed Truth to Broadway," said Tyson.

The upcoming show is being billed as "a rare, personal look inside the life and mind of one of the most feared men ever to wear the heavyweight crown... This riveting one-man show goes beyond the headlines, behind the scenes and between the lines to deliver a must-see theatrical knockout."

A website has already been set up (http://tysononbroadway.com/), and tickets are now on sale. 

This should be interesting. It's a one-man show, but Spike could get creative with it.
