Glamorous showgirls, a live big band, singing, dancing… VEGAS! THE SHOW tells the story of the music and magic of the Las Vegas Show and how it all began.
Glamorous showgirls, a live big band, singing, dancing… VEGAS! THE SHOW tells the story of how it all began. The Rat Pack, Elvis, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Tom Jones, the legends who made Vegas... Vegas!
The show opens in the “Neon Boneyard,” resting place of those beautiful signs that defined the city during its glory days. The icons are soon sparked back to life by their caretaker, Ernie, who is determined to show visitors TRUE Las Vegas entertainment, the way it was meant to be.
Soon… showgirls, singers, dancers, and a live “big band” begin to join Ernie, taking audiences on a musical journey through the decades and telling the story of the most dynamic performers who made Vegas the “Entertainment Capital of the World.”
VEGAS! THE SHOW was written by show producer and theater owner David Saxe who literally grew up backstage of a Las Vegas show. His mother was a showgirl in Les Folies Bergere and his father was a saxophone player and bandleader for The Rat Pack.
For more than 20 years, David dreamed of bringing the story of Las Vegas to the stage… elaborate costumes, booming musical numbers, a classic Vegas vibe! Saxe, like his main character Ernie, can’t bear to think of it all crumbling away like the city’s landmark hotels. Creating VEGAS! THE SHOW is his way of keeping the legacy alive!
