Travel back to the Middle Ages and experience a celebration of Medieval proportions at Excalibur's Tournament of Kings. This dinner and show features jousting, dancing, singing and a feast fit for a king. The show is a fun way to combine getting dinner with experiencing the excitement that ensues when knights in shining armor on horses duel to determine a champion.Guests are seated in an arena-style setting with each section representing a different "country." Four-rows deep, the arena is divided into seven "country" sections and the "dark knight" section, which represents the evil Mordred's minions. During the show guests are encouraged to cheer on the king representing their section as the knights go head to head in various competitions including a horse race, jousting, sword fighting and gladiator-style battles.Once seated, guests are served the first portion of their dinner, "dragon's blood" (hot tomato soup.) Just like what real lords and ladies would have experienced back in the Middle Ages, utensils are not provided, and patrons have to eat with their hands. Servers also come around during this time to fill drink orders. Along with soda and juice, an assortment of alcoholic beverages are available for purchase during the show.Merlin and a court jester get the crowd going by introducing three cheering methods that actively engage everyone in the audience. After a hearty dose of merriment from Merlin and the jester a drum processional files into the arena to announce the entrance of King Arthur. Next, the other kings are announced, each blazing into the arena on a galloping horse.The knights are dressed in costumes rich in color and design, and each of their horses is adorned with bright plumage. The costumers were designed by Michel Fresnay, who was nominated for a best-costume Emmy in 1989 for the television production of "Napoleon and Josephine."During this time, dinner consisting of a roasted Cornish hen, steamed vegetables and a biscuit is served. While the audience dines, a large round table is lowered into the center of the arena where King Arthur and the other knights also partake in the feast, raising their glasses and toasting to the joyous occasion. Dessert is served afterwards and includes a sweet pastry.After a song and dance number by the court maidens, the knights set aside their glasses and engage in some friendly competition to determine who is the champion king."If you want to win you must cheer," announces Merlin as he and the maidens encourage each section to root for their king.Audience members embrace the opportunity to be loud and cheer when the king representing their "country" is doing well or boo when he is losing the competition.The competition is interrupted when evil Mordred, the fire wizard, appears and attempts to capture King Arthur's kingdom. The kings unite to try and defeat the dark knight in a series of action-packed battles. Fire, smoke, explosions and of course more cheering from the audience fill the arena. Swords clash and sparks fly as the battle between good and evil proceeds until finally one side is defeated.Tournament of Kings brings all the action from the Medieval period that you've seen in movies and read about in history books right to your dinner table. Audiences of all ages can enjoy this raucous celebration. --By Caroline Fontein

Family Oriented
PostedMarch 1, 2015
A different kind of show, well done, but did lag after a time. Performers were quite talented as exhibited by the choreographed battle and riding sequences. The wait staff does an excellent job getting food and drink to the guests and the meal was served warm.

When Carrot Top comes out on stage there's no telling what crazy contraption he's going to pull out next, but classifying him as just a prop comic is an understatement. His wacky inventions are merely an extension of his outrageous and hilariously funny personality. While some jokes are based on items that he pulls from his prop trunks, others rely on his talent as a stand-up comedian and comical commentary on everything from tourists to NASCAR, celebrities and current events.He begins with talking about how when people come to Vegas they suddenly have urge to gamble on everything in sight."One time I lost $20 on a Coke machine," jokes Carrot Top.Then he introduces a few of his "inventions." "Here's an Amish hair dryer," says Carrot Top as he pulls out a long bendable tube that he has to blow out of and aim at his hair. Next he demonstrates a redneck baby carrier, which is actually a box of beer that has holes cut out of it to fit a baby's head and limbs.The red-haired comedian barely stops to take a breath as he transitions between frantically searching for a new prop and telling jokes. Before you know it the topic has changed from walking to the Excalibur to his last visit to the porn convention in Las Vegas."It takes an extra hour to walk around because your feet get stuck to the floor," jokes Carrot Top while people in the audience can't help but keel over laughing.Next he transitions to talking about athletes and pulls out a football helmet with a phallic attachment to demonstrate what one of his least favorite players should wear.His show is just as wild and crazy as his big hair and brightly colored tie-dyed T-shirt that he wears during his performance. What seems like a loud fashion statement for most people is mild in comparison to the comedian's uninhibited personality.Mid-way through the show, a bucket is lowered from the ceiling with what the comedian claims to be his "medicine." He pulls it out and reveals that his medicine is actually Crown Royal. Carrot Top pours a shot for himself and then a few more that he hands to people in the front rows while AC/DC's "Have a Drink on Me" plays in the background.You just never know what this crazy comedian is going to say or do next. At times it looks like not even he knows what's going to come out of his mouth, but he admits later on in the show that "A lot of this isn't for you. I'm just entertaining myself."However, the continuing laughter and buzz from audience members as they exit the theater and re-tell some of his jokes proves that he is doing much more than just that.-- By Caroline Fontein

High Energy
PostedMarch 1, 2015
Carrot Top's show is an incredibly funny and non-stop. Stand-up, props and video are woven into a laugh-a-second performance that keeps the audience in constant laughter. With 9 trunks of 'stuff' on stage, his creative use of everyday objects will bring tears to your eyes.

Along with fellow Buffalo, N.Y. native Janien Valentine and Peter O'Donnell, they put on a show that makes everyone in the audience feel like family.Frankie Scinta's impressive musical talent is the backbone of the show, but the performers' playful comedy keeps guests laughing the whole way through. "Adopted Scinta" Peter O'Donnell has been with the show since the family first took the stage in Vegas.

Classic Vegas

Frankie Scinta is a talented, funny, high energy performer. The show never slowed down. I enjoyed every moment. His brother Joe did a great job skewering Mick Jagger and Neil Diamond. The show is an excellent value.

 B - A TRIBUTE to The Beatles
B - A TRIBUTE to The Beatles
Beatles fans won't want to miss the chance to relive the days of Beatlemania at B - A Tribute to The Beatles. The performers impress even the most discerning fans with their dead-on impressions of the famous quartet in their show at the V Theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.Let your mind drift back to 1964 when the Beatles made their U.S. television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show." This is just one of the many iconic moments in Beatle history that you are transported to during the show."We have a live show tonight, but what I'd like to know right now is do we have a live audience?" exclaims an Ed Sullivan impersonator who acts as both your host and tour guide for the different eras of Beatles music visited in the show. He is met with an uproarious response from the audience in anticipation of the upcoming act.Next, the curtain rises, unveiling the clean cut, mop-topped quartet, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, singing "I Want to Hold Your Hand." People in the audience cheer and sing along to the well known tune.The performers play all of the songs live on the same brand of instruments and amps used by the Beatles, without tapes, sequences or backing tracks. Their remarkable attention to detail with every song makes it seem as though you were listening to an actual recording from the real band.As they perform "A Hard Day's Night," "Can't Buy Me Love" and more of the band's early hits, audience members dance in their seats to the familiar songs.For "Eight Days a Week" they get the audience involved by asking everyone to join in and clap during the chorus. Go-go dancers appear on both sides of the stage to add some extra pizzaz to their already outstanding performance of "I Saw Her Standing There."The curtain closes and Sullivan reappears dressed in an outfit more fitting of the changing times as the show shifts gears from the early to late '60s. He tells a few jokes and sets the tone for the next Beatles era .From "Day in the Life" to "Let It Be," Fab Four Live performs all of the Beatles' legendary songs while at the same time also re-creating the real band members' change in appearance as their music evolved.This time they reappear with longer hair, mustaches and wearing brightly colored military-style suites to perform "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band." Their flawless re-creation of the signature outfits and the well known psychedelic rock songs brings everyone back to when that album was first released in 1967.Later in the show, Lennon, wearing an all-white suit, comes out and takes a seat at the white baby grand piano that has been rolled out on stage. Before singing his next song, he takes a moment to show his gratitude to the audience and explains his affinity for Beatles music, making it clear that although they sing their songs, his band never actually attempts to be the Beatles."Thank you for coming and celebrating the music and the message of the Beatles," says Lennon, now also acting as an impersonator paying tribute to one of his greatest idols. "I love this music, it makes all of us connected."In a few more simple words he pays tribute to his character, Lennon, and acknowledges his everlasting presence in the world today."An act of violence may have taken this man, but nothing would ever silence his voice," says Lennon before breaking into "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine."The band members reunite on stage for a few more memorable tunes before ending with "and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."Their electrifying performances remind everyone of the incredible power of song and how the Beatles not only created innovative music but started a cultural revolution."They're phenomenal guys," said Ralph McCormick, a guest in the audience from Charlotte, N.C. "It takes me back to the days when I used to listen to these guys. I can't put it into words, it was just phenomenal."--Staff report

Well produced show
PostedOctober 9, 2013
Every Beatles fan will enjoy this show. High energy, great music and a very believable 'Ed Sullivan'. Costumes, Go-Go dancers and 'Ed' take you back to the sixties. Can't stay in your seat. Excellent value for the price.

Mike Hammer is an energetic, funny, engaging comedian/magician with a fast paced show. His audience interaction and banter is excellent and keeps your attention throughout the show. His performance is worthy of a better venue than the 4 Queens provides. C'mon 4 Queens, class up the room a bit!!!!!

Reflecting the spirit of Las Vegas' past while embracing a passion and vitality for the future, the legendary Bally's resort in the heart of the Strip is an enduring favorite among visitors. Offering much more than just affordable accommodations, Bally's showcases cosmopolitan dining, a fine spa and a premier race and sports book.Of course, entertainment makes up a cornerstone of the resort. "Jubilee" has a history spanning more than 30 years. The grand-scale production is responsible for pioneering the showgirl-style revue. Although revamped and given a culturally contemporary twist, it retains its topless showgirls flocked in feathers and rhinestones. In fact, nearly 100 showgirls and showboys kick, dance and sing their way through over-the-top numbers like the sinking of the Titanic.And if you can't get enough of "Jubilee" onstage, go on the Jubilee Backstage Tour. The all-access afternoon walking tour, which is led by a showgirl, takes you behind the scenes to check out the giant-sized props, the extravagant costumes and much more.Other entertainment options at the resort include the interactive dinner show "Tony n' Tina's Wedding," the tribute show "Country Superstars," the astonishing mind reading in "Paranormal" and the sexy satire "50 Shades! The Parody" based on the best-selling "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy.Bally's has its share of distinctive restaurants -- like BLT Steak, a highly regarded steakhouse from New York City. Among its signature staples are popovers, tuna tartare, Dover sole and of course, specialty steaks. On Saturdays and Sundays, BLT Steak serves the Sterling Brunch, where guests can indulge in fine fare including caviar, lobster tails, fresh-shucked oysters, Alaskan king crab legs, and never-ending glasses of Perrier Jouët Champagne, mimosas and bloody Marys. Check out Sea - The Thai Experience, which features unique fusion cuisine in a sleek setting. Elsewhere on the property, you'll find fast eats at Java Coast, Nosh and the large food court, which includes Johnny Rockets, Nathan's Famous, Sbarro, Pan Asian Express and Subway.In the evenings, dance the night away at the Indigo Lounge. Live bands perform in this seductive spot, usually accompanied by a sexy tabletop dancer or two. And you can make friends with other visitors in Sully's, the wood-paneled bar near the lobby that has been welcoming guests to Bally's for many years. If you're interested in the day's big games, the resort is home to the finest race and sports book around. Located at one end of Bally’s Avenue Shoppes (an eclectic collection of fashion, souvenir, jewelry, luggage and sundries stores), this stadium-style venue has projection-screen TVs wherever the eye can see. A VIP lounge, called the Sky Box, features additional flat-screen televisions and comfortable seating. It can accommodate up to 100 guests. Plus, there's a big bar with high-top tables spilling out out into the shopping area.Bally's is home to the outdoor Grand Bazaar Shops. This 2-acre retail complex is located at the front of the property. Inspired by great markets from around the world, the Grand Bazaar Shops has more than 100 retail outlets including Swatch, Superdry, Havaianas and Campo Marzio as well as a collection of restaurants and bars. The focal point of the Grand Bazaar Shops is a spectacular installation called the Swarovski Starburst. Positioned over the brand's store, it displays a dazzling midnight show of lights and music.Bally's includes an Olympic-sized pool with palm trees, private cabanas and a whirlpool. There's also an impressive tennis complex, the largest one on the Strip. All eight championship-caliber courts are lit for night play. A full-service pro shop and lessons from a former ATP Tour player are also available.A place that offers rejuvenation and profound relaxation, The Spa at Bally's is an exceptional facility. It has 18 treatment rooms, multiple hot tubs, wet and dry saunas, and a eucalyptus steam room. There is a salon and fitness center as well.The comfortable accommodations at Bally's comprise 2,814 spacious guest rooms and suites. Among the standard amenities are hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, clock radios and cable TVs. Unlike many hotels on the Strip, Bally's has designated "PetStay" rooms where pets are allowed to stay for an additional fee.The resort is connected to Paris Las Vegas through Le Boulevard shops. It also is on the Las Vegas Monorail route. This means you'll have easy access to other great hotels on the Strip as well as to the Las Vegas Convention Center.Bally's opened in 1973 as the original MGM Grand. At that time, with more than 2,000 rooms, it was one of the largest hotels in the world. Today, it's no longer among the biggest properties -- but at Bally's you can surround yourself with the charm of yesteryear while enjoying a fabulous present-day Vegas vacation.

The new food court was under construction and thus completely closed down. The escalators and moving walkways leading to the strip were not working. $3 a day to use the room safe and there was buzz they may be enacting resort charges. The area from the street to the front door is tired and dated. While the casino is smaller compared to the recent mega-resorts, it's comfortable and easy to get around. The restaurant open for breakfast is decent and affordable. Good service, but the hostesses seem bored and uninterested. One of the few, if only, places that has lounge entertainment.

Las Vegas was built on pure, raw talent. That's producer David Saxe's stance and the concept behind his 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, on-stage musicians.“VEGAS! The Show” opens with a custodian named Ernie who works at Las Vegas’ Neon Museum - a graveyard for the once luminous signs of Vegas day’s past. Clad in a blue jumpsuit, Ernie reminisces about some of the most memorable entertainers who played Vegas and how the times have changed since then. Among the retired signs that once decorated the Strip include signs for the Glass Pool Inn, the Silver Slipper and the Sands among others.However, with the earnest wish to treat the audience to a special night of how entertainment used to be, Ernie announces, "For one night only, we want you to suspend reality and join us on a journey back in time to experience some of the greatest entertainers who ever played Vegas,” and before we know it, the stage is transformed into a classic showgirl venue.Along with picturesque Vegas showgirls, men wearing tuxedos and women in gowns take the stage for a glamorous song and dance number choreographed by Tiger Martina."We want to share with you the moments and the memories of that gleaming jewel in the desert," says Ernie who both acts as the master of ceremonies and performs as various entertainers from the past.The scene changes to a swingin' number with Louis Prima and Keely Smith before transitioning to the 1960s when the Rat Pack played the Copa Room at the Sands. Throughout the show the set is constantly evolving into a new and exciting scene with dazzling costumes, incredible singing and contemporary choreography. Each scene represents a vintage Vegas act, but Martina's high-energy choreography, paired with innovative production elements, portrays iconic entertainers of years past with a new twist.For example, Sammy Davis Jr.'s "The Candy Man" starts with a performer singing the song solo before being joined by a parade of showgirls. Dressed in fitted outfits with silver ruffles that say "Good & Plenty" "Almond Joy" and other candy names, the dancers throw out chocolate and other goodies to people in the audience during the song for a pretty sweet number.Additionally the “Luck be a Lady” number is highlighted with one female lead dancer who dominates the stage of men as her suggestive dance moves seduce luck upon the onlooking men.Bu as soon as the last note is hit, the scene quickly changes to another memorable Vegas act. While iconic entertainers are represented in the show, the performers aren't tribute artists. This is most apparent during the Elvis numbers.Most people probably expect to see a white jumpsuit and a dark pompadour with side burns when it comes to Elvis, but not in this show."Yeah I know, I'm blond," says the performer representing Elvis.He jokes with the audience, letting people know that what he and the other performers are doing isn't about emulating every aspect of famous entertainers. Instead they're celebrating the performers and what they might be like if there were still around today… but still with excellent talent at that."The heart of the city is gambling but the soul is music," says Ernie before performers representing Sonny and Cher appear on stage singing "I Got You Babe."And truly embodying the elements of a variety show, the production includes other acts such as an amazing and hilarious hula hoop act, talking parrots, and a high-flying balance/ acrobatic act.Toward the end of the show, the audience is treated to an Elton John tribute. A performer wearing a white suit and large glasses takes a seat at a white piano situated on stage in front of the curtain. As he sings "Rocket Man," video footage of vintage Vegas is displayed on the curtains. Some of the images are of the original acts that were just performed on stage, while others depict casinos in Vegas that have been imploded over the years. The video clip reminds everyone that while the landscape may have changed, the city is still home to fantastic entertainment with glitz and glamour that can only be found in Vegas.

Much better than you expect
PostedApril 13, 2013
This is a high energy and excellently performed production. Singers, dancers and a couple of surprise acts were as good as you'll find anywhere in Las Vegas. The history of the music in Sin City was well captured and followed a timeline from the huge 50's productions to recent times. It'll leave you wanting more.

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

A talented showman, but the uniqueness of the characters was the most entertaining aspect of his show. The big screens were useful for those with poor sight lines.

Does the higher priced ticket for Mike Hammer provide a better seat than the general admission ticket?

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report
