Broward Stage Door Theatre, in association with Kevin Black Productions, will bring Black’s hit show, Vegas: A Night on the Strip to Boca Raton’s Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park for a limited run from February 3rd to February 12th. The production, which premiered at Stage Door on December 9th, played to packed houses through its run , and was so well received by audiences and critics alike that when The Willow expressed interest in the production, Black and Stage Door Executive Producer felt the show deserved to be extended, and Palm Beach County audiences given the chance to see what Broward County theatre patrons had been enjoying during the show’s sold out run.
Vegas: A Night on the Strip dives into the rich history that made the city of Las Vegas a hot destination for entertainers from around the world. Featuring music from some of Vegas’ most memorable icons – from the Rat Pack and Elvis to the modern-day Cirque-type spectacles; from showgirls to headliners; from high-rollers to high-flying acrobatics… “with maybe a Vegas wedding thrown in!” Black said recently.
“When most people think of Vegas, they immediately remember the likes of Frank, Sammy, and Dean…The Rat Pack,” Black continued. “However, Vegas: A Night on the Strip is so much more. I decided to tell the history of ‘The Entertainment Capitol of The World’, through the construction and implosion of those iconic hotels on The Strip, and the entertainment that graced their stages. Our six vocalists pay tribute to this great city with nods to numerous Vegas icons – not only the Rat Pack, but legends like Celine Dion, Elton John, Tom Jones and Wayne Newton, and the lavish cirque -style shows that dominate The Strip today.
“The creative “workshop” process is my favorite,” Black explained when asked about the evolution of the production. “Arranging new ways to present some old classics and seldom heard gems is so satisfying. Our Musical Director/Arranger Ben Bagby is a master at this and you’ll see his work shine more than ever in this show.”
Vegas: A Night on the Strip will run from February 3 to 12 at The Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park. The theatre is located at 300 South Military Trail in Boca Raton (33486).
