VEGAS! THE SHOW opens in the “neon boneyard,” resting place of those beautiful signs that defined the city during its glory days. The historic 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. Glamorous showgirls, singers, dancers, and a live “big band” orchestra begin to join Ernie, taking you 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.” The Rat Pack, Lena Horn, Elvis, Gladys Knight & The Pips – see how it all began!
VEGAS! THE SHOW was written by producer and theater owner David Saxe who literally grew up backstage. His mom was a showgirl in Folies Bergere and his dad, a bandleader for The Rat Pack. For more than 20 years, he dreamed of bringing this storyline to the stage… elaborate costumes, booming musical numbers, that vintage Vegas vibe! Saxe, like his character Ernie, can’t bear to think of it all crumbling away like historic landmark hotels. VEGAS! THE SHOW is his way of keeping the legacy alive!
