 Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys
The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito, who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling music groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is an experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

Travel back to the Middle Ages and experience a celebration of Medieval proportions at Excalibur's Tournament of Kings Dinner & Show. 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 Dinner & Show 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

It’s David freakin’ Copperfield. Need we say more? We really don’t but since we love talking about this world-famous magician who just so happens to be our neighbor, we’ll go on and brag about him and his show anyway. The perfect combo of nostalgia, magic and showmanship, master illusionist David Copperfield continues to wow us time and again. Trust us, we’ve been about 17 times and still can’t figure out how he teleports. Seriously, how does he do that?!Anyway, moving on. This show is just mystifying enough to make you believe in the supernatural, while also making you feel like a crazy person for considering whether or not someone could actually separate their torso from their legs and live to tell the tale. We just aren’t sure how he pulls off his magic but we are more than O.K. with it.In fact, we hope the mystery continues to endure the test of time so that we can keep attending the show and increasing our chances of being picked for the audience participation. Let’s be real here. We are talking about the man who made Statue of Liberty disappear and who walked through the Great Wall of China. Clearly, anything is possible. Don’t believe us? See Copperfield perform for yourself and let us know just how many of his illusions and tricks you manage to figure out. And if you get pulled onstage, we’ll be insanely jealous.

Have a favorite Las Vegas memory? No, we’re not talking about that time you ran naked through the buffet (we haven’t been able to look at mashed potatoes the same). We were actually hoping you’d mention an iconic performer, someone like Michael Jackson or Cher. Speaking of all-time great singers, Legends in Concert has an all-star lineup of tribute artists set to rip the stage.Legends in Concert isn’t just a “tribute show,” it’s THEE tribute show. And it has all the big names. Las Vegas heavyweights like Elvis, Barry White, Frank Sinatra, Prince and Lady Gaga. Like the O.G. artists themselves, Legends takes things up a notch by adding bedazzled costumes, crazy, wild backup dancers, and an over-the-top on-stage orchestra. All of this awesomeness isn’t to take away from the fact that these performers can really sing. These are trained, talented performers and not some fools they pulled out of the local karaoke bar.So slide on into that tub of nostalgia. The water’s warm and welcoming. Those bubbles though, those aren’t us. We’re looking at you, Elvis.
