Whether you’re a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll, Donny and Marie Osmond will have you dancing in your seats (or maybe the aisles depending on whatever you’re sippin’ on) with their 90-minute, feel-good Vegas concert.Singing together on stage for the first time in 1973 during a Las Vegas Osmond show, the brother and sister duo discovered their niche and hit the ground running.And while Donny got his start singing with his six brothers in the family music group, The Osmonds, and while Marie originally achieved solo success when her version of “Paper Roses” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Music charts, the two left their roots and joined forces in 1976 to host the ABC variety show, “Donny & Marie.”Still performing together today with every bit of gusto and showmanship that previously sky-rocketed the two into teen stardom, Donnie and Marie’s headlining Las Vegas show takes audiences back to yesteryear while simultaneously indulging onlookers with today’s popular hits.Since opening their show in 2008 at the Flamingo, their family-friendly concert entertains with high-energy numbers such as "Get the Party Started," "Dancing in the Streets" and "Knock on Wood” in addition to a new song, "Vegas Love,” which is off of their latest and first album they have recorded together in 30 years.Following the winning formula of their 1970s TV program by incorporating dancing and humor and performing most of their hit songs as a duo in addition to highlighting some of their career achievements individually, there is not a dull moment in this production.For Marie's turn in the spotlight, she sings her most well-known song, "Paper Roses," along with some of her other country favorites, accompanied by two guitar players.She then takes it a bit slower for a moment when she belts out a flawless rendition of the operatic “Pie Jesu” but then heats things up with a mash up of "Walk this Way" and "These Boots Were Made for Walking," accompanied by male dancers and, of course, elaborate and dazzling costumes.But when it’s Donny’s turn to woo the audience, the set transforms for the performer who was always a little bit rock 'n' roll, and he appears out of the on-stage fog to rock his 1989 comeback hit "Soldier of Love."Donny, a "Dancing with the Stars" winner, shows off some of his moves and some funky choreography in "Yo Yo" while footage of him and his brothers dancing during the '70s plays on a screen behind the stage.Even though Donny likes to rock, it was his love ballads that made him an official heartthrob and he doesn't disappoint the longtime fans, singing well-known hits like "Puppy Love," accompanied by footage of him during his teenage years."This is the part where all of the women would scream," says Donny in the middle of "Puppy Love," which of course, elicits screams from the female members of the audience. "I've still got it!" he proclaims and the audience agrees.Donny and Marie reunite on stage toward the end of the show, singing some of their classic hits like "Make the World Go Away," "Morning Side of the Mountain" and "Deep Purple."The intimate 750-seat showroom at the Flamingo is a perfect fit for Donny and Marie, offering a good view from just about any seat and allowing the performers to walk out into the audience and get close to their fans. The classic Vegas-style room features booths and tables and contributes to the feeling of nostalgia the duo evokes with their show.The Osmonds have both starred on Broadway and they close the show with songs from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "Wicked," "The Sound of Music" and more.Donny and Marie have been crowd pleasers in Vegas since childhood and judging by the fact that they're still consistently selling out shows, they'll continue to be welcome for many years to come.

Still a great show
PostedFebruary 24, 2014
This is a great family show , with wonderful performances from Donny and Marie. We had booth seating which we booked in advance and had a great view of stage.i don't think the seating further back would have been so good, but I guess you get what you pay for .The drinks service is o.k .We did not use it but were asked a couple of times if we would like drinks but they were not pushed. Great songs and banter ,both my husband and myself enjoyed it enormously

Don't blink, you might miss something. Actually, you might miss a lot. That's what audiences at V - The Ultimate Variety show will want to remember. This fast-paced, high-energy show features an exciting lineup of specialty acts from around the world. During the 75-minute revue you'll see about seven different acts take the stage.New performers are constantly being added to the show's roster, so you never know exactly who you're going to see that night. Some of the recurring acts include: master juggler Wally Eastwood; the Skating Aratas; The Crazy Gauchos from Argentina Eduardo Lomé and Hugo Latorre; Ukrainian rhythmic gymnast Tamara Yeroffyeva; Melinda - First Lady of Magic; and comedian Russ Merlin.The show's variety format stems from the days when shows used to feature a specialty act to supplement the main production. In some instances, those specialty acts became the stars of the show. At V - The Ultimate Variety Show, all of those stars get a chance to shine in one amazing revue. The varied lineup makes this show a great option if you're traveling with a group and looking for a show that has a little something for everyone.Eastwood is both the host and a performer in the show. His infectious energy sets the pace for the whirlwind of talent about to take the stage. Eastwood has been described as having "the fastest hands on Earth," and it's easy to see why. He performs several different routines throughout the show, including juggling ping pong balls with his mouth and playing Beethoven's "Für Elise" by bouncing rubber balls on an electronic keyboard. Not only does he amaze, but Eastwood makes people laugh. His happy-go-lucky attitude paired with his self-deprecating humor is a winning combination.The Skating Aratas kick things into high gear with their daring acrobatic skating act. Performed by husband and wife Victor and Jenny Arata, their act is done on a small platform on an area of the stage that extends into the crowd. Victor propels the duo in a high-speed spin while lifting and spinning Jenny in the air in a series of awe-inspiring poses. The limited performance space, paired with their risky routine is nothing short of amazing.Dressed in traditional garb, The Crazy Gauchos perform an exhilarating drum routine. They stomp their feet in perfect time to the upbeat rhythm resounding from their drums. They enliven the audience with their wild sense of humor.The mood changes from uproarious laughter to awe as Yeroffyeva, a former Olympic gymnast, enters. Tall and lean, her graceful movements enchant the audience as she demonstrates spinning a hula hoop on her legs or arms while contorting into various different postures. Her flexibility is mind-boggling.After a more than 10-year hiatus from the stage, Melinda - The First Lady of Magic is back in Vegas amazing audiences. A mother of two, Melinda makes it hard to believe she's ever stopped performing. She was the only female magician to have her own headlining magic show on the Strip in the ’90s. As part of the cast at V, Melinda does three main illusions with the help of her female assistants/dancers.Merlin performs a comedy act with four volunteers from the audience. Each volunteer is given an outrageous mask to wear and assigned a different gesture to make when Merlin taps them on the shoulder. It's not long before the entire audience is laughing at the hilarious scene he creates on stage.If you are looking for a night of big laughs paired with an assortment of awe-inspiring entertainment, V -The Ultimate Variety Show has it all.
