Mike Tyson One Man Show To Run In Indianapolis

The Mike Tyson one man show will hit Indianapolis - the city where he was jailed after The Old National Centre announced today that he will perform on Feb. 12 and 13 in "Mike Tyson; Undisputed Truth."

Directed by Spike Lee and written by the boxer's third wife, Kiki Tyson, the confessional ran for 12 shows on Broadway and the Indianapolis stop is part of a national tour. You might think Tyson has no place on the stage, but most critics didn't dismiss it altogether, however they weren't exactly enamoured with it. The Telegraph say, "Mike Tyson's one-man show in New York was amusingly honest, if at times self-indulgent." And the shows funny side is, by most accounts, the best part of the show. There are many funny moments in his anecdotes too. I doubt anyone in the audience will forget the night they saw the former heavyweight champion of the world hugging himself in a pretend clinch before prancing across the stage and leading the audience in a falsetto singalong of 'Loving You'", the Telegraph continues. 

Tyson served three years in an Indiana prison for the 1991 rape of a Miss Black America pageant contestant. A Marion County jury convicted Tyson of one count of rape and two counts of criminal deviate conduct. Tyson served his time at the Indiana Youth Center, a high-medium security facility west of Indianapolis.
