Frank Marino sizzles in Divas Starring Frank Marino. After starring in "La Cage" at Riviera for more than 20 years, this Vegas icon is taking audiences by storm in his new show at Imperial Palace. During the 75-minute revue, superstar female impersonators portray famous divas including Britney Spears, Cher, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross and Beyonce. Marino stars as comic icon Joan Rivers and host of the show.Divas Starring Frank Marino opens with Lady Gaga's "Let's Dance." A female impersonator portraying Lady Gaga lip-syncs to the chart-topping hit while six attractive male back-up dancers help get the party started on stage. Wearing a short, white, patent leather dress, sparkling glasses and a blonde wig, this Lady Gaga has all the pizzazz of the real performer.Next, Marino enters to greet the audience and tell a few jokes.You won't believe what we have going on back stage, says Marino. We have Madonna, Cher and Bette Midler getting ready, and they're all shaving in the same mirror.As the show's emcee, Marino is sassy, spunky and stunning in his ever-changing wardrobe of extravagant sparkling gowns and feather boas. He puts on a different outfit between each act, bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with every entrance."This damn dress is made like a cheap hotel, there's no ballroom," jokes Marino after walking on stage wearing a fitted evening gown.People watch in amazement as each new female impersonator takes the stage. Although the performers don't sing, they emulate every aspect of the divas they're impersonating from their looks to their signature moves. A high-energy soundtrack adds to their exhilarating performances. Every act features a No. 1 hit from your favorite diva including Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," Britney Spears' "Circus" and Madonna's "Music." Some divas perform solo while other acts also feature the talented back-up dancers.Later in the show, an impersonator portraying Liza Minnelli brings audience members to their feet with his riveting performance of "New York, New York." His convincing dance moves and facial expressions make it hard to believe he's not actually singing.Throughout the show, people sing along and dance in their seats to the popular songs. Glitzy costumes, dazzling performers and a soundtrack of chart-topping hits - Divas Starring Frank Marino has it all.

If you're in Vegas, don't leave town before you see the Divas!
PostedMay 5, 2014
Every good live performance gives as much as it gets. So it is with the Divas. I followed a friend's recommendation to see the show and got reserved seats ticket in a booth just to the right side of the stage - great view and a number of the performers came down the aisle right in front of us! Every single one of the divas was outstanding -, each nailing the mannerisms and looks of those they impersonated -Joan Rivers ,Beyonce, Cher (a dead ringer!), Bette Midler, Liza Minelli, Diana Ross, Celine Dione, Shanaya Twain, Dolly Parton, Reba McEntyre -I'm probably leaving somebody out. As wonderful as the Divas were, the "back up" dancers were even better - very talented, athletic (one did a 360 degree leap from a dead stop, landed cleanly and kept on dancing!) - once you see these guys, who needs Chippendales? The show gave me a great jolt of positive energy, and a good feeling because a portion of the show's earnings go to support Make a Wish Foundation. So, go. Enjoy!

What is including in the VIP tickets? Do you get singled out and teased or is it just great seats?

You get a great view and occasionally some of the performers pass by your aisle, shake hands, smile for a photo (you can take pictures throughout the performance.) Nobody gets teased - the pace of the show is too quick for banter with the audience. The close up seats are definitely worth it!!
