The fabulous feathered headpieces, the rhinestone embellished costumes, the beautiful, long-legged (and topless) showgirls – this is Jubilee.Jubilee is more than a topless revue. It is the only remaining showgirl production in Las Vegas. Choreographer and producer Donn Arden opened the show in 1981, bringing to the stage over-the-top dance numbers and elaborate sets, such as those telling the stories of the sinking of the Titanic and the Bible's Samson and Delilah.The show was reworked in early 2014 by choreographer Frank Gatson Jr., who attempted to stay true to Arden's original vision.Arden made his mark in Vegas when he produced one of the first showgirl production shows, Lido de Paris, for the Las Vegas Strip in 1958.Many of the original elements remained with this latest incarnation, including the grand opening and finale numbers with dozens of Vegas showgirls and showboys descending a grand staircase.The music has been updated, as has the theater's sound system, lending itself to a crisper sound. Although the stellar vocalists are singing to canned music, the sound is decidedly more modern, with a primarily R&B flair.In the new production, the show introduces Miss Jubilee and her glow stick-carrying, faceless companions. An unseen narrator announces that Miss Jubilee must travel back in time because "her rightful place is on the Las Vegas Strip … and her journey (is) to reclaim the night."She travels through the Valley of Sorek, where Samson and Delilah's ill-fated love story takes place, only to make her way onto the equally doomed Titanic "to find true love."Miss Jubilee makes her way to America, where tap dancing showgirls greet her to the tune of "You're a Grand Old Flag." The performers take on energetic dance routines that span American choreography (think swing, tap and hip hop), getting the audience to their feet.Gatson, who is pop superstar Beyoncé's creative director, told Vegas.com he took special care to stay true to Arden's vision, all the while adding new dances and the storyline of Miss Jubilee.-- By Nicole Lucht

Real VEGAS SHOW!!
PostedDecember 18, 2013
This is a real Vegas show! Showgirls with large head dresses, elaborate sets, dancing, singing, and feats of strength! The real thing! Make sure you select the table seating as you will have a cocktail waitress serving you through the show. Highly recommended!!

With more than 25 years of success on the Las Vegas Strip, Legends in Concert has become a mecca for tribute artists around the world. The show features only the crème de la crème of performers who pay tribute to the most iconic entertainers in the world.The cast consistently changes, giving audiences new faces and voices to marvel at. The performance we saw began with a stunningly realistic Rod Stewart (John Anthony), who swung his mic stand as he sauntered around the stage singing hits like "Tonight's the Night" and "Maggie May."Pop princess Britney Spears (Katie Murdock) danced nonstop while she sang "I'm a Slave 4 U," "Oops I Did It Again" and other favorites in her signature pouty voice. From her backup dancers' choreography to her tight, shiny costumes, the act was a convincing mimic of the "real" music videos that played simultaneously on the theater's giant screens.Damian Brantley brought the moonwalking magic of Michael Jackson to life in "Billy Jean," and the Legends dancers were ghoulishly great in "Thriller," which was performed in full, accompanied by the original video.Kate Steel made an appearance as Lady Gaga but, true to her character, didn't seem to care that she had. Gaga's costumes were out in force, from leotard to bubble dress, but the real treat was Steel's redesign of "Edge of Glory," in which she paid tribute to the original artist's talent as a pianist.Of course, Elvis Presley (Shawn Klush) topped off the show with a flashy display of hip-swivels and stage slides. He broke with Las Vegas tradition by leading with "Heartbreak Hotel" instead of "Blue Suede Shoes" (in fact, he never sang the latter). "Burning Love" was an audience favorite, and Klush hammed it up, demanding kisses on the cheek from women in the crowd and then turning quickly to peck them on the mouth instead. Elvis closed the show with "Viva Las Vegas," and the performers led the way out of the theater, wishing the guests lots of luck.Legends in Concert earns distinction among shows on the Strip for leaving no noticeable breaks in performance because its several stars each play short sets. There is no down-time for re-arranging or re-costuming. In an afternoon or an evening with Legends, you'll be sure to get a whole lotta star power for your money.-- By Haley Etchison
