VegasChatter Facebook fan Johnny K. first alerted us to the possibility the comedian's run at the downtown casino may be over last week. We were able to confirm it today through two separate enquiries. The reason why, however, is a mystery right now. We've emailed Anderson's management for a statement.

Las Vegas has seen celebrity residencies, restaurants, hotels and even salons. But, aside from Nobu hotel and restaurant, big names rarely venture outside of their small ponds, sticking to the discipline they know best. In May, that will change when Suzanne Somers, best known for her ditzy role as Chrissy on Three's Company, launches a residency at Westgate. And, opens a spa there. And, debuts a cafe, too.

After leaving Rio to make way for a Duck Commander, MJ Live had hoped to glide over to a new locale at Riviera. A planned opening of March 2, however, never happened as the hotel-casino is now in its final weeks of operation after being sold to the LVCVA (Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority). The Riv, if you haven't heard by now, will close its doors at noon May 4.

It looks like the Plaza is back with another
short-lived new show. Lovers or Losers: The Game Show is a live production sure to please fans of the Game Show Network (GSN). Whether those people are the ones frequenting Plaza and will actually buy tickets remains to be seen.
The game show takes advantage of the fact that thousands of couples come to Las Vegas either on vacation or specifically to get married. Why not put them on the spot and test their love? Couples are pitted against each other and must use their skills and love to make sure they come out as lovers and not losers. #seewhatthey #ohyoudid

After promising to be back in February and failing, Defending the Caveman is finally laying its spear down in Downtown Vegas. The one-man show lost its home at Harrah's in January on the cusp of its four-year anniversary at the Strip hotel.

After many successful years on The Strip, the brains behind New York-New York's Zumanity decided to “reinvigorate" their production (see also: fired some cast members, hired some new cast members, and altered and added some scenes). They invited us along to a media night to rediscover the show.
If you haven’t seen Zumanity before, the show is unlike the other Cirque Du Soleil shows in town. The others are family friendly, they’re safe, and the cast members don’t try to… ya know, prod you with questions about your sex toy preferences. Zumanity, on the other hand, Is like that one weird person we all know that’s a little dark, a little unpredictable, and a little shall we say, “off." Basically, Zumanity is not for everyone. It’s sexual. It’s raunchy. And, its risqué. So, if you aren’t in to that, you might not like it. If you are, like me, then the show is an absolute must see!

Las Vegas has officially gone to the geeks! First, we let you know about Wizard World Comic Con coming in April along with the already established Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con over EDC weekend in June. Then, we filled you in on the Nintendo Legend of Zelda symphony concert series coming to Venetian. Now, it’s time for Marvel fans to assemble.
The Strip / Harrah's / Shows / Openings / Menopause The Musical / Entertainment / VegasChatter Reviews / → All Tags
I had a chance to see Menopause The Musical years ago, but I couldn’t get any friends to go with me, even the menopausal ones! I took that as a sign it was a show I could skip. When I realized the show has been running for nine years (after stops at Luxor and the Hilton before that), I figured it was time to put stigma aside and visit the production's newest home, Harrah’s, to see what it was all about.
The showroom where it takes place is wide and not very deep so there’s a good view from most seats. It was clear from the very start this show would be a funny one. A goofy, pun-filled show that's geared to a certain demographic," yes; but, funny, too. If you’re unfamiliar and can’t guess from the name, this is a musical about women (four in particular from different walks of life) who are going through menopause. You might think this is an odd subject for a musical. You’d be right; but, somehow, it works.
For the next season of Broadway at The Smith Center, it will be a mixture of first-time productions and the return of a few you may have missed, or wished you could see again. Here's what's on tap for this summer through next spring:

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. 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 16:
One pool that will be rockin' hard: Hard Rock will dive back into pool season starting March 6 when Rehab as well as Nirvana and Breathe pools open once again. Entertainment on tap for Rehab includes 3OH!3 March 21 and Sammy Adams March 28. Tickets for both start at $20 for ladies, $30 for gents.
