ABOUT THIS LAS VEGAS SHOW


From the producers of “Rock of Ages” comes “Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel in Concert,” the ultimate Elvis hit-driven, story-telling concert experience at Harrah’s Las Vegas. 

Presenting the music and the story of Elvis’ meteoric rise to fame all in one night’s immersive experience, the show features more than 18 Elvis songs that came to define “rock ‘n’ roll” as we know it today, while four giant LED walls present authentic imagery and scenes from his extraordinary life. 
“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel in Concert” is the only Elvis production in Las Vegas authorized by Authentic Brands Group, owner of Elvis Presley Enterprises, LLC. 
Inspired by the musical originally written and directed by Floyd Mutrux and now adapted for the stage by Ivan Menchell, the concert version of the show in Las Vegas is being staged by Broadway veteran Jeff Calhoun. Unlike previous versions of the show, the Las Vegas production will focus on the music and will be a concert performance.

Leading the band as Elvis Presley is Eddie Clendening, who is widely regarded as one of the most genuine and true-to-life performers of Elvis.
Clendening created his role while starring as the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” in 2,200 performances on the Broadway production of “Million Dollar Quartet.” He also played Elvis in the Chicago and Japan productions of the show.

Harkening back to Elvis’ original Blue Moon Boys band, Clendening will be joined on stage each night by Matt Codina, who originated the role of Scotty Moore in the musical “Heartbreak Hotel;” Jonny Bowler (bass), who has recorded and played with numerous top acts including Wanda Jackson, Guana Batz, Levi Dexter and others; Cole Maxwell (drums), who has been performing since he was five years old and has worked alongside Andre Williams, Dick Dale and Brian Setzer; Colte Julian (piano and Music Director), best known for his critically acclaimed national touring role as ‪Jerry Lee Lewis in ‪”Million Dollar Quartet;” and Geno Henderson (guitar), who has performed as Jackie Wilson, BB King, Ike Turner and others and originated the role of Jocko Henderson on Broadway in “Baby It’s You.”

FUERZA BRUTA’ IS NEW PERFORMING ART EXPERIENCE

 While this new show in a dark obscure tent in the southeast corner of the Excalibur’s parking lot may not be for everyone, it will have strong appeal for many. 

Diqui James’ similarly fashioned “De La Guarda” standing-only show ran at the Rio in the fall of 2000 for nearly a year. 

The Rio show led to the creation of “Fuerza Bruta” ...

True you will be standing an hour with a show happening above your head and all around a 360-degree changing theatre, but the experience keeps you intrigued. 

Infectious drum-beat music is a backdrop to scenarios taking the audience through wind, rain and confetti-blizzards with acrobats performing. 

The production has some truly mesmerizing experiences including the huge clear-plastic tarp shallow pool that is lowered above the crowd to where folks can touch it while performers run and jump in the water. 

When a tarp is pulled over the audience, you’re not sure what is happening and suddenly it is raised and becomes a tent with three big circles where performers drop through it. 

This is a one-of-a-kind experience taking place Wednesday-Sunday at 7 and 9:30 p.m

Tickets start at $86.50.

A MOB STORY’ IS A REFLECTION WITH A MODERN TWIST

After a few necessary delays to mount a large-scale production show and refurbish the retro-showroom at the Plaza, “A Mob Story” is up and running with the prospects of being an open-ended run.

Plaza - A Mob Story remodeled showroom

The remodeled showroom matches the nod to Las Vegas' past with the comfortable table and booth layout and chandeliers in juxtaposition to the new projection video walls wrapping-around the enlarged stage with an added side landing with stairs.

The music-dance production also mixes the past with modern day. The past is the mob theme and the show's compelling charismatic figure Michael Franzese, a real life former ex-mobster with the Columbo crime family. 

Image result for Michael Franzese

When Franzese speaks frankly and honestly about the mobster life, he draws in the audience and lets them know it's not a good life. 

He knows all too well, which is evidenced in the show with him revealing he's the son of Colombo crime family under-boss John “Sonny” Franzese. His father was in and out of federal prison several times and released last year at 100 years old becoming the oldest individual in federal custody.

On the other hand, the show's producer and director Jeff Kutash has mounted a high-power musical with today's songs and styles of dancing and a world-class cast of 22 singers and dancers. 

The many costume changes have the hint of the past such as a dark zoot suit, but with a jazzy colorful glitzy interpretation. 

Different periods of the mob's history are covered from the party life and involvement with Havana to the high life in Las Vegas. The video screens are where the audience watches old pictures while vibrant choreography and music energize the show .

  1. It will be interesting to see what happens on/after April 1 when the Strip casinos start charging $10 to park in their lots......of course MGM says they are charging the $10 to "enhance the parking experience" - what a lot of crap. AND it will cost $17 to valet park - so I wonder how many of the valet parking attendants will ever get another tip. Let's see if the casinos just slit their own throats!
