Unlike sculptures and other works of art, live productions are organic creations. They grow and evolve over time. This is especially true inside the showrooms at Wynn Las Vegas.
The Broadway-themed ShowStoppers has promised a frequently changing experience and the aquatic Le Reve - The Dream has been especially fluid (we’re so punny) throughout its lengthy run. As much as this self-proclaimed Le Reve junkie (26 times and counting) would like to boast about having seen it all, those bragging rights belong firmly to the show's drummer, Jean Ainsley.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of February 2:
Love is in the air at the Titanic Exhibit: Just in time for Valentine's Day, a cherub sculpture is on display at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition inside Luxor. The rare artifact will be on display through February 28. While there were many cherub statues on the ship, this bronze is the only one to have been recovered. It is suspected that this specific piece was part of a light fixture on one of the staircases. The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and tickets are $32 ($29 with local ID).

With no on-site parking and nearby garages at SLS Las Vegas, Circus Circus, Stratosphere and Riviera likely to already be packed by guests, the majority of Rock in Rio ticket holders will need to consider public transportation options before they rock out on the north Strip.

Set to span two weekends this May as part of the mega-concert event's first US production, Rock in Rio will be the inaugural event for the MGM Resorts Festival Grounds currently under construction across from SLS on the north Strip (recent photos above and below). Today, officials released proof (in a roundabout way) that the most buzz is for Metallica out of a lineup that also touts No Doubt, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars as additional marquee acts -- they've sold out of VIP tickets for the day Metallica will perform, May 9.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of January 12:
○Downtown: Now With More Mob: The Mob Museum is on the move in Downtown Vegas. Kinda. A traveling exhibit, basically a 1972 Jaguar XKE convertible once owned by John Gotti, can now be found at the Plaza through June 30.

After months of negotiations and even longer of speculation, Caesars Entertainment has finally filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Paperwork placing its operating unit, Caesars Entertainment Operating Co., into bankruptcy was filed in Chicago.
The casino giant is billions upon billions in debt, but while some creditors are on board with the bankruptcy, others are fighting against it. Bloomberg reports that "lower-ranking creditors.. say the restructuring accord Caesars worked out with a select noteholder group unfairly protects the company's interest at their expense." Caesars listed about $20 billion in liabilities and is looking to halve that.

The rumor about a JLo residency for Las Vegas has been around forever, but Jenny might be closer than ever to hanging around the block of 3500 Las Vegas Boulevard South.
It's been announced that Jennifer Lopez will perform a one-night-only concert at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace on New Year's Eve entitled, "The Best Is Yet To Come." I haven't checked Twitter yet, but that might come with a hashtag of #residencytest. A press release states Lopez will perform all her smash hits with the help of 25 musicians and dancers.
