A show about Las Vegas in Las Vegas? What will they think up next? Now like the last few shows that I have blogged about I have no idea what this one is about. Yes I know it's about Las Vegas. However I'm sure there is more to the story than that. So let's find out shall we? Sit back. Relax and enjoy this brief synopsis about Vegas! The Show from the official website. Enjoy!
Las Vegas was built on pure, raw talent. That's producer David Saxe's stance and the concept behind his new creation VEGAS! The Show at Saxe Theater. The show celebrates iconic moments from the city's rich entertainment history through the performances of 40 singers and dancers and 11 musicians.
Born into a show business family, Saxe grew up watching some of the great acts that made Vegas what it is today - the Entertainment Capital of the World. His dad was a bandleader for some of the biggest performers on the Las Vegas Strip, including the Rat Pack, while his mom was a dancer in "Folies Bergere" at the Tropicana. She performed even while she was pregnant with Saxe in 1969.
When he was 17, Saxe became the youngest producer in Vegas when he launched his sister's show, Melinda the First Lady of Magic. During the past 20 years he has produced more than 100 shows. He currently has 13 shows in production at Saxe Theater and his other venue V-Theater, both located at the Miracle Miles Shops at Planet Hollywood.
As someone who grew up loving everything about Vegas entertainment, VEGAS! The Show is a way for Saxe to celebrate the city's colorful past with audiences today.VEGAS! The Show opens with a custodian named Ernie who works at the neon sign graveyard. Clad in a blue jumpsuit, Ernie reminisces about some of the most memorable entertainers who played Vegas. Behind him is a lavish set piece resembling some of the neon signs that once graced the Strip, including signs for the Glass Pool Inn, the Silver Slipper and the Sands.
Sounds like a winner to me. What do you think? By the way for those of you heading to Las Vegas in the coming months you are in luck my friends.
