    ‘SPOOFICAL’ FINDS DAVID SAXE SHREDDING STRIP ICONS
    BY: John Katsilometes/Las Vegas Weekly



    David Saxe has been holding onto a couple of show concepts that, independently, would never seem to work here. One is a full-scale Las Vegas satire he’s long felt was too “insider-ish” to appeal to a theater full of tourists. The other is a send-up of pop culture, under the working title That’s So Wrong, rooted in the gross/inventive humor employed in Family Guy and Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

    Today, Saxe reasons that intertwining these disparate concepts will make a hit show. In the final stages of rehearsals, undergoing final revisions even as we speak, is Spoofical—A Musical. The show is scheduled to open February 8, having been delayed by a week for changes to the script and production components.

    That’s So Wrong would have been an apt title for this one. After watching an afternoon of rehearsals at Saxe’s V Theater fortress at Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops, I can safely report that this is one of the most boundary-testing productions ever in Las Vegas. It might top the list, considering the high measure of content that is at once aggressively vulgar and hard-focused on Vegas entertainers.

    Oscar Goodman says Raiders-to-Las Vegas talks are ‘serious,’ but don’t give up NFL wagering
    BY: John Katsilometes/Las Vegas Sun

    We’ve been down this road before: A professional sports franchise on unsteady footing in its home facility starts poking around Las Vegas.

    When Oscar Goodman was mayor of this city, he talked to several major league organizations about moving to Las Vegas. Time after time, those teams wound up staying put, as owners were able to hasten agreeable lease deals with their home cities.

    We might call it being used as a bargaining chip or being a “political football.” Whatever the case, Las Vegas officials often felt gamed, justifiably, in its unending hunt for a major professional sports team.

    The list of pro franchises to talk with Goodman included the San Diego Chargers, Montreal Expos, Florida Marlins and Chicago White Sox.

    New ‘X Country’ is ready to shake it (off) at Harrah’s
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun



    Six sexy dancers are about to change the face of line dancing with their country curves when “X Country” celebrates its grand opening Thursday night at Harrah’s. It’s the latest “X” production from husband-and-wife producing team Matt Stabile and Angela Sampras.

    They’ve recruited knockout beauties Emma Smith, Carrie Jean, Chloe Vashaw, Jill Reed, Nina Kane and Erin Green to fill the Daisy Dukes made famous by actress Catherine Bach on “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

    The girls kick off the new topless adult production with a warning: “Flirt’n With Disaster” by Molly Hatchet. They shake it off to Taylor Swift’s hit of the same name and really strut their stuff on a “Cruise” by Florida Georgia Line. The other dances include Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats,” “Truck Yeah” by Tim McGraw and “Thunder Rolls” by Garth Brooks.

    ‘Jubilee’ at Bally’s to close Feb. 11 after 34-year run
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun

    The longest-running show on the Las Vegas Strip is closing on Feb. 11. The cast and crew of “Jubilee” at Bally’s were rocked with the unexpected news shortly before midnight Saturday. It’s a double shocker in less than 48 hours because the show’s co-creator and associate producer, Fluff LeCoque, died Thursday at age 92. She was unaware of the pending shutdown after its 34-year run.

    The iconic and lavish Donn Arden’s “Jubilee,” which cost $10 million to stage, is coming to an end, but there’s hope that a new showgirl spectacular at its Bally’s home could arise from the ashes. Caesars Entertainment executives, I’ve learned, are exploring a new show. I have an interview set for Monday on that subject, and we’ll post that as soon as possible.

    “Bally’s Las Vegas is proud that millions of guests from around the world have experienced this thrilling Las Vegas classic for more than 34 years. We are looking forward to revealing exciting new developments in our entertainment lineup at Bally’s in the coming months,” said Bally’s Las Vegas President David Hoenemeyer in an official statement after notifying cast moments ago.

    Sinatra’s 100th stirs memories of The Rat Pack
    BY: John Katsliomentes/Las Vegas Sun



    Steve Wynn insists there will never be another era in Las Vegas to match the heyday of The Rat Pack. That group of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford (later pared to Sinatra-Davis-Martin) has been top of mind lately for Wynn as Sinatra’s 100th birthday — Dec. 12 — approaches.

    The most prominent celebration, “Sinatra 100: A Grammy Celebration,” was recorded Dec. 2 at Encore Theater for a Dec. 6 airing on CBS. Appearing in the two-hour show are Tony Bennett, Celine Dion, Harry Connick Jr., Lady Gaga, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Alicia Keys, Zac Brown, Adam Levine, Juanes, Seth MacFarlane, Carrie Underwood, John Legend and Usher. Wynn helped wrangle about half of the artists to the event. Brooks, of course, spent three years headlining for Wynn at Encore Theater.

    During Wynn’s early years as a resort operator, he lured Sinatra and Martin to the Golden Nugget resorts in Atlantic City and Las Vegas. Sinatra’s powerful celebrity helped both resorts enhance their reputations during extensive revitalization. Wynn’s commercials with Sinatra, which aired across the East Coast, were especially effective — and pretty entertaining.

    ‘Jersey Boys’ commemorates 3,000 shows on the Las Vegas Strip
    BY: Robin Leach/Las Vegas Sun

    It’s the show and the music that just won’t quit. Congratulations to the cast and crew of the hit musical “Jersey Boys” at Paris Las Vegas, which tonight celebrates its 3,000th performance on the Las Vegas Strip.

    It’s the story of a group of blue-collar New Jersey boys who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, yet became worldwide pop sensations. How can you not forget Frankie Valli’s sensational hits “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What a Night,” “Sherry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Rag Doll” and more.

    ‘Divas’ Madonna tribute artist has his own blond ambition
    By John Katsilometes/Las Vegas Sun



    Fan first, tribute artist second.

    That is the order of progression for Kenneth Banks as he has portrayed Madonna for more than a decade in two Strip productions.

    “The first time I saw her was in 1991 on ‘The Blond Ambition Tour,’ and I thought, ‘I can do that,’ ” says Banks, eschewing the fact that Madonna and he are of differing genders. “I attempted it, I did all the numbers from ‘Blond Ambition,’ and it still works.”

    Banks arrived in Las Vegas in 2004 as a cast member of “An Evening at La Cage” at Riviera and in 2009 followed headliner Frank Marino to Imperial Palace (later The Quad and now The Linq Hotel) in his tribute show “Divas Las Vegas.”

    CRAZY GIRLS TO CELEBRATE 28th ANNIVERSARY IN LAS VEGAS



    September 25, 1987 is a day that changed Las Vegas forever… the date marked the first live performance of the now iconic “Crazy Girls” (www.crazygirlslv.com) at the Riviera Hotel & Casino. Now for more than 28 years “Crazy Girls” has remained as fresh, new and controversial as the day it opened. -With the demise earlier this year of the Riviera Hotel & Casino, “Crazy Girls” found itself in serious demand as big name hotels courted the world-famous show – and was finally wooed by Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino to become a member of its entertainment family and now plays nightly (except Tuesdays) at Planet Hollywood’s Sin City Theatre located on The Mezz overlooking the casino.

    “Crazy Girls” is celebrating its 28th anniversary on Wednesday, Oct. 21with a private party for VIPs and invited media with a red carpet, food and cocktails, the show and a souvenir photo with the “Crazy Girls.”

    The producer-director Norbert Aleman is an experienced producer with decades of experience in show business, but the “Crazy Girls” with a cast of seven girls who are the stars of the show is the longest running. For those who like comedy-magic Tony Douglas hosts the show. There’s even a songstress.

    “The Sin City Theatre had a major overhaul for ‘Crazy Girls’ to perform there,” Aleman said, “Planet Hollywood is the perfect combination of classic Vegas and modern edgy Las Vegas that truly represents Crazy Girls’ past, present and future.”

    The ultra-sexy show has entertained millions of audience members from royalty to celebrity including Prince Albert, Nicolas Cage, Tom Cruise, Magic Johnson, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Tom Jones, to name a few.

    It has been involved in tabloid stories like Magic Johnson’s Wild Weekend in Las Vegas with the “Crazy Girls” and Jahna Steele’s “Sexiest Showgirl on the Strip. The bronze butts statue was protested by the National Organization of Women when it was unveiled,” but it later went on to win awards by NPR and other organizations. Legend has it if you rub the butts you will have good luck in the casino.

    It’s Las Vegas’ most sizzling topless show and reinvents itself nightly, pushing the envelope with new routines that features the scintillating professionally trained “Crazy Girl”s dancers performing world renowned choreography. Thousands of dollars in dazzling costumes adorn each dancer from topless contemporary boot-stomping pole dance numbers to bawdy, burlesque classics.

    “Crazy Girls” is a must-see show now only at Planet Hollywood. Tickets are on sale now through any Caesars Entertainment Box Office, online at ticketmaster.com or by calling 702-777-2782. Visit Crazy Girls online at www.crazygirlslv.com, www.facebook.com/CrazyGirlslv, or on Twitter @CrazyGirlslv.

    “This is an exciting announcement for the Las Vegas Arena, and another example of why Las Vegas is the Entertainment Capital of the World,” said Rick Arpin, senior vice president of entertainment and development, MGM Resorts International. “We are thrilled that George is going to be a huge part of our opening season with this special exclusive engagement. He has had a significant impact on our city’s entertainment landscape over the years and we are thrilled he will provide Las Vegas visitors and our local community the opportunity to see a series of additional legendary performances.”

    George Strait said, "I said all along I wasn’t going to tour anymore, but I also said that I wasn’t retiring by any means and I still wanted to do some dates. I’ve been working a little bit here and there, and I’m really proud of this new album that’s coming out. I think it’s a great record – I always say this; I think it’s one of the best records I’ve done. I always shoot for that. You’ve got to go in the studio thinking that way, so I’m very excited about that and I’m also very excited to be coming back out and playing for the fans out there. I’m looking forward to it so much, singing those songs that I love so much and haven’t done in a while. I’m really, really looking forward to being able to play in the new Las Vegas Arena. I hear it’s just unbelievable. I can’t wait."
