Hal Prince Comes to The Smith Center May 14th

by Connie Shearer

Hal Prince, director/producer with an impressive 21 Tony Awards and over 50 musicals, plays and operas to his repertoire.  With a lengthy resume consisting of some of the most exceptional musicals made in the past six decades.  He is credited with West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Caberet, Evita, and Phantom of the Opera.  Coming to the Smith Center, May 14, 2015.

This unique opportunity to witness this moderated interview during which Price takes us through his life and legendary career.  This show is complimented with live performances by individually chosen soloists by Prince interlaced throughout the set.  The night ends with a Q&A session with the audience.

After nearly giving up on his career in the field of theatre arts in the late 1960’s but thankfully with the success of Cabaret in 1966 he decided to give it another go.  Collaboration with composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim marked the beginning of some of his greatest work ever.   The duo worked together successfully on many of their own projects.  The association created a string of productions, including Company (1970), Follies (1971), A Little Night Music (1973), Pacific Overtures (1976) and Sweeney Todd (1979).  The two parted ways soon after the unsuccessful release of Merrily We Roll Along in 1981.

Get your Hal Prince tickets for a grand night at the Smith Center here you will have such an entertaining, enlightening evening.  Filled with talk, song, fun and information you can get from the man himself.  Hal Prince’s extensive musical resume includes creating beautiful operas including directing two for Andrew Webber which were both complete successes.  Later Prince turned down directing Cats for Webber and was later the inspiration for the character for John Lithgow’s character in Bob Fosse’s film all that Jazz. And again the basis of a character from Richard Bissell’s novel Say, Darling.  In 2007 Mr. Prince was awarded the National Medal of Arts and I could go on for days but really you should come out to the Smith Center in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada to hear him tell his story in his own words.

Reliable sources from all camps are telling us that they are all looking into dates over the next two years for their mini-residencies and Janet, Lionel, and Ricky are as excited as Diana to have this opportunity at the Venetian. It is a very intimate setting and for fans to have this kind of chance to get this close and personal with living legends like these is what Las Vegas is known and loved for.

Establishing itself as a premier luxury destination, which includes some of the finest entertainment the Strip has to offer the Venetian is excited to be putting these shows together for everyone!

New Resort Coming to the Las Vegas Strip in 2018

by Connie Shearer

James Packer’s Crown Resorts will possibly be a part in opening a new Resort on the prime real estate of the Vegas Strip that was once occupied by the New Frontier hotel and casino. Andrew Pascal, nephew of Steve Wynn’s ex-wife, Elaine Wynn, will head up the company. Pascal was also formerly the president and chief operating officer of Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. US hedge fund giant Oaktree will be providing “financial support” for this venture while it still owns half the loan tied to a casino at that site that collapsed when the recession hit.

Mr. Packer said “As we have built Crown Resorts into a thriving international company with successful casino ventures in Australia, Macau, and London, we’ve always kept our eye on Las Vegas.” “You can’t be in the gaming industry and not have a special reverence for Las Vegas – that’s where it all began.”

Oaktree President Bruce Karsh said “When Andrew approached us and shared his vision for the site and his partnership with Crown, we were eager to invest a portion of the proceeds from our debt investment and become an equity partner.” Both parties have agreed they think the land they acquired is the best piece of underdeveloped land on the Las Vegas Strip currently. Sitting almost directly in the middle of the four corners and Fremont Experience downtown it really is possibly the best place to start building. With the downtown revitalization project underway and with “Rock In Rio” coming just down the road at the corner of Sahara and LV BLVD this May and hopefully every year after this idea could be the perfect timing. The new mega-resort is slated to open a year after Genting is slated to open its $4 billion Resorts World Las Vegas just up the street at the site of the former Stardust. Keep your eyes open Las Vegas your skyline is soon to be changing once again!

NHL Commissioner to Attend Ticket Drive Kickoff in Vegas

by Connie Shearer

Getting prepared for next year’s grand opening of the new 17,500 seat arena that will be accessible by a new project known as “The Park” currently under development by MGM Resorts International and AEG Live in the space between New York-New York and the Monte Carlo Casino hotels. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman’s presence on scene will be to show support for the ticket drive that he along with the league have approved for Bill Foley and the Maloof Brothers who are spearheading this entire expansion project to run a ticket drive to gauge the cities actual interest in the sport of hockey.

With a goal of selling 10,000 of the 17,500 seats as season tickets with prices ranging between $150 – $900 per seat. The idea began with the hope of Founding 50 people who would commit to either buying or finding other people to buy 60 season tickets each. Surpassing that by 33 they actually have a Founding of 83 and that’s almost 5,000 season tickets right there.

The Founders have almost all made 10 year commitments and bought at high prices. The interest has been overwhelming as also 22 of the 44 Suites and all 8 bunker suites near the ice have all already been sold out – with multi-year commitments.  Foley while not being arrogant is confident that the whole project is going beautifully and they haven’t even started yet, but the outpouring of support from the local community has been promising. Foley noted that 6,500 people have submitted their contact information through the website VegasWantsHockey.com but none of those people have been sold tickets as of yet.

This Tuesday’s press conference will be the first show of a push forward in this project since the arena began construction on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is expected to be completed in early 2016 and there is no word yet but this arena may give the Las Vegas Wranglers a new arena to call home.   Because of confidentiality agreements with future Wrangler partners the team is unable to reveal all the details about where their new home actually is. So this is only speculation for now about a possible National Hockey League expansion team in Vegas. However, not speculation is word that UFC president Dana White said he has been “promised” the privilege of hosting the first sporting event at the arena, and that MMA would consider holding more events there.
