In part one of this article, I covered a bunch of new productions...and a brand-new "Show Lounge"....at Alexis Park Resort. I also told you about ALL SHOOK UP moving from Planet Hollywood's V THEATER to Alexis Park. Now it seems that PIANO MAN is slated to take up residence at V THEATER. It may sound confusing, but Vegas 411 is here to simplify things for you.
Yesterday I received a phone call from Kyle Martin, creator and star of PIANO MAN. The multi-talented musician offered exclusive news to Vegas 411 that he would be moving his Billy Joel/Elton John tribute from Mosaic Theater to V Theater in mid-June. He emphasized that he is very grateful to Sophia Song, Dean Coleman, and the entire team at Mosaic Theater, but has decided to try a different location. You can get up-to-date ticketing information by visiting the V Theater website, the official Piano Man website. or the Piano Man Facebook page.
AUSSIE HEAT moves to NOTORIETY Live
Long-running AUSSIE HEAT will also be departing Mosaic Theater, this time for NOTORIETY Live. That brings the dance-heavy male revue back to its original downtown origins. The show debuted at The D Hotel Casino in 2015, then moved to V Theater before heading to Mosaic on the Strip. Producer/co-creator Darren Sutton (formerly of Aussie Heat) will be rejoining his pals at NOTORIETY when the new WORLD'S GREATEST FREAKSHOW arrives there from Australia next month.
FAAABULOUS! The Show has expanded its offerings at NOTORIETY Live this month. Our choice for "Best Drag Production of 2021", it now performs Thursdays and Fridays at 9 pm and offers a classy, elevated Drag Brunch experience on Sundays at 12:30 pm. The only such production to feature live-singing drag queens, FAAABULOUS! is was created by ZUMANITY's famed "Edie Entertainer" and PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS star Jamie Morris.
Learn more about FAABULOUS! and other drag brunches in our Vegas 411 article right here.
QUEENS OF ROCK returns to Mosaic Theater on the Strip
MOSAIC THEATER might be losing two of its resident productions, but one long-awaited spectacular is finally returning. Elyzabeth Diaga's QUEENS OF ROCK is simply one of the best entertainment options on the Strip. Filled with powerful anthems, pitch-perfect vocals, jaw-dropping energy, and an amazing in-house band, QUEENS OF ROCK sets the standard for tribute shows...or shows of any variety.
QUeens of Rock performs at MOSAIC every Thursday through Monday at 7 pm. Tickets and the current schedule are available here.
LadyLike Retro-Modern Burlesque
Out with the guys, in with the girls, as MOSAIC THEATER is set to replace Aussie Heat with the new burlesque production LADYLIKE. Not much is known about this show, although its retro color scheme and website give off a cool 1960s vibe:
"LadyLike is an edgy twist on the traditional woman's role in society. Set in charm school, our cheeky Head Mistress will guide you through four lessons exploring the way women were expected to behave in the vintage era. LadyLike will blend retro style with a modern attitude, creatively combining striptease, critically acclaimed choreography, and showcasing some of the best dancers in Las Vegas."
In Part 3 of Summer Show Shuffle, we'll look in on Michael Carbonaro, Penn and Teller, RECKLESS IN VEGAS, and a bunch of literal freaks.
