|Viva Las Vegas
The Broadway Showroom of the Stratosphere Tower Hotel and Casino lights
up every afternoon with "Viva Las Vegas," producer Dick Feeney's tribute
to classic Las Vegas variety entertainment.
The longest running daytime show in Las Vegas, "Viva
Las Vegas" opened at the Sands Hotel and Casino April 15, 1991, and
moved to the Stratosphere when the Sands closed in 1996.
More than a million visitors have enjoyed the
combination of hilarious comedy, show-stopping singing and dancing.
Tuxedoed M.C./comedian Dave Swan keeps "Viva Las Vegas" moving right
along with his Las Vegas story-telling humor.
Also keeping them laughing is Big John Michelson,
whose comments on a man's place in the world and his relationship with
his barbecue grill tickles everyone's ribs. Unforgettably funny is
Golden Joe Baker's avant-garde rendition of some of Elvis Presley's
classics. Principal singer Tammy Georgine, with a voice as impressive as
Celine Dion's, heads "Viva Las Vegas'" stellar cast, and six Las Vegas
Lovelies add sparkle and color as only Las Vegas showgirls can.
"Viva Las Vegas is fun and entertaining and allows
guests to experience a great show in the afternoon and still leave their
evening open for other plans," says Tom Willer, Stratosphere VP.
Part burlesque, part vaudeville, all entertainment,
"Viva Las Vegas" recently commemorated nine successful years.
"Viva Las Vegas" performs two shows daily except
Sunday, 2 and 4 p.m. in the Stratosphere's Broadway Showroom. Tickets
are $10 per person. (800) 99-TOWER or (702) 389-7711.
