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).

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?

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).

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.

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.
This season will bring nine productions to Downtown Vegas, ranging from the touring debut of Kinky Boots to the return of Wicked. Tickets will be available to season subscribers beginning March 3. The general public will be able to purchase new subscriptions beginning May 12. Individual tickets will be announced at a later date.
Here's a complete rundown of what to expect and when as well as video previews from their Broadway counterparts:

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.

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.

Allow us to introduce our newest VegasChatter contributor, LuckyDucky. She hails from a beach town in the south, but ended up loving land-locked Las Vegas more than she expected, and has stuck around for eight years. Though her tourist time is behind her, she never tires of corny souvenir glasses, the Bellagio fountains, and the Luxor beam. For her first assignment, she experienced a new way to view a Vegas favorite.
Front row seats to Cirque shows may feel luxurious but with performances on such a large scale, it can be difficult to see all of the elements when sitting close to the stage. Enter the new VIP suites at Bellagio’s Cirque show, "O."
If you want to kick it up a notch for your Vegas show experience, be prepared to shell out the big bucks. This VIP experience will cost you $295 per person ($335.45 with tax and fees), but can you really put a price on legroom? Many Las Vegas theaters sardine you in, even when you’re paying top dollar for those front row seats.

Critic fave Phat Pack have found themselves without a home.
The show, put on by three former Phantom of the Opera castmates from when it headlined the Venetian, debuted at downtown's Plaza back in late 2012. It spent about a year there before a new window of opportunity opened at Bally's in December of last year. The group took to Facebook on February 1, however, to let fans know their time there had already come to an end:

The all-new Tropicana will be able to hang onto that distinction a bit longer. An old favorite will dance its way back into the limelight when Mamma Mia! headlines the Trop's renovated theater beginning this May.
The much loved Broadway show closed at Mandalay Bay in 2009 after a six-year run. Tickets for its return are now on sale with performances beginning May 8 at the Trop.
