'Men Of The Strip' Finally Live Up To Name

Where: 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. [map], 89109
March 31, 2014 at 4:27 PM | by | Comments (0)

The big event set for March 29 has finally come and gone. And, we don’t mean Earth Hour or the first rides on the High Roller, even though those little blips happened, too. No, we're referring to the Las Vegas premiere of Men Of The Strip. And, if that name doesn’t ring a bell, you must have missed our coverage here. And, here. And here, too. Yes, we’ve been following the show for awhile and now we can answer whether it was worth the hype.

Thunder From Down Under Rumble With Gunman Backstage

March 19, 2014 at 6:20 PM | by | Comments (0)

Men at work.

We've always fantasized wondered about what went on in the dressing room at Thunder from Down Under at Excalibur and thanks to Magic Mike we got a pretty good idea of what that might be. But as it turns out, it's not all flexing, oiling and trying out new thongs. Things can get real backstage at TFDU. Very real.

Last night, a man entered the locker room for the performers around 9pm and began stealing a few items from their belongings. According to the Review-Journal, the performers confronted the man when they saw him with their stuff. The man then pulled out a handgun and a shot was fired during the struggle. No one was hit but one person received a powder burn from the gunshot and was treated at the scene.

The suspect was taken to University Medical Center and appeared to under the influence of meth. He'll be booked on at least a few charges when he's released. Meanwhile, the show is expected to go on as usual tonight.

There's no word on what was included in the stolen belongings but hey, meth dude, you can easily have some stylish thongs shipped to your house. No need to steal the sweaty underpants off of hard-working Australian men.

Zarkana Returns From Hiatus A (Somewhat) Changed Production

Where: 3730 South Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89158

No, it will not be performed outdoors now...

After a one-month hiatus dedicated to upgrading the popular variety act, Cirque du Soleil's production of Zarkana re-opened its doors to the public in February. New characters, music and an additional acrobatic act were among the key changes made to the ocular spectacle that debuted at Aria in late 2012.

Male Strippers and Pizza Rock Come Together For Vegas-Based 'Reality'

Where: 201 N. 3rd Street [map], 89101
March 7, 2014 at 2:40 PM | by | Comment (1)

A while back, we did a little Q&A with Vegas resident (and one-time “boy bander”) Jeff Timmons. He told us of his plans to open a new male revue on The Strip sometime in the future. After a nationwide tour to stir up interest, Men of the Strip has returned home and is ready to become a reality. As in,”reality TV."

A few days ago, we caught wind of a rumor that Jeff Timmons and his hard-bodied Men of the Strip all-male revue had returned to Las Vegas, supposedly to settle in. We figured they’d be announcing the location for that planned residency any day. Instead, they're here to film segments for an upcoming docu-series. And, the male revue is still, apparently, looking for a home. Or maybe not, depending on how cynical you are towards the reality aspect of these TV shows. (We're talking to you, Pawn Stars).

Inspire Theater Is The Gateway To A New Fremont Experience

Where: 89101
March 4, 2014 at 7:55 PM | by | Comments (4)

Not long ago, we marveled at the amazing video marquee above the now-open Inspire Theater in Fremont East (on the corner of Fremont and Las Vegas Boulevard). Ever since, we've been chomping at the bit to get a look inside. Well, recently, we not only got through the doors, but took in one of the venue's first shows. Was the theater inspiring enough (cough, cough) to give it a thumbs up?

Call A Buddy: Pawn Shop Live Is Picking Up, Erm, Shop

Where: 2901 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

It aimed low and still missed the mark for us, but the Riviera apparently thinks there's a profit margin to explore.

After officially opening at the Golden Nugget on January 21, Pawn Shop Live! -- the Pawn Stars parody -- is already moving. Beginning April 21, the show will call the Riviera home with performers taking to the stage daily at 4:30 p.m. inside the Starlite Theatre (where illusionist Jan Rouven performs at night).

After tonight, there will be one less entertainment option on Fremont Street. Raack N Roll will mark its final performance at the D this evening.

VegasChatter Twitter friend and Raack N Roll fan @George Addams brought us news of the impeding closure on Sunday. We were able to confirm yesterday that the topless production's one-year run was coming to an end tonight.

Smith Center President and CEO Myron Martin in some Kinky Boots.

The Smith Center is ready to get a leg up on the Broadway Series to come. The downtown performing arts center has announced its full schedule of shows set to begin August 2014 and continue through May 2014 and we're, once again, geeked out about it.

The general public will be able to purchase new subscriptions beginning May 12. Individual tickets will be announced at a later date.

Why You Should Invade Zombie Burlesque

Where: 3663 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
February 11, 2014 at 3:51 PM | by | Comments (0)

It seemed fitting that right before America’s favorite show, The Walking Dead, returned to living rooms across the country, we would get an invite to check out Zombie Burlesque in the V Theater inside Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood.

Zombie fever has swept into Vegas in the last couple years. We have a Zombie Run, a Zombie Apocalypse store, a non-profit Zombie Squad branch, and you can even shoot zombie targets at The Gun Store. It was only a matter of time before someone put together a zombie show. This writer was not surprised that the man behind this show is David Saxe. Saxe is one of the city's most prolific producers, having brought many well-known shows to the stage including Nathan Burton, Marc Savard, The V Variety show, Recycled Percussion, and Popovich Comedy Pet Theater.

Pawn Shop Live Aims Low, Still Misses Target

Where: 129 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV [map], 89101
February 10, 2014 at 1:09 PM | by | Comments (6)

What happens when you produce a Vegas stage spoof of a television program that’s already a fabricated portrayal of real life? Well, in the proper hands, it could be something brilliant. Or, it winds up being the steaming pile of juvenile humor and grade C acting that gets barfed up onto the stage in Pawn Shop Live.
