Showstoppers Brings the WOW Factor to Wynn Las Vegas

I love Broadway. I miss those big production numbers that fill the stage with song and dance and excitement. Curtain up. Overture. If you are a lover of Broadway shows, then get your tickets to Steve Wynn's ShowStoppers at the Wynn. Wynn , who serves as the show's narrator, has brought us big bold Broadway. Thirty five singers and dancers and a 31 piece orchestra right on stage.

This is a glittzy production with the kind of costumes you'd expect to see on Broadway. And the kind of sound. And staging. And singing. And choreography It is first rate. It has Razzle Dazzle. I mean that both ways. It is glitz and glamour as they sing Razzle Dazzle. The show includes One from A Chorus Line, Cell Block Tango from Chicago, Wilkommen from Cabaret. I'd love to see what goes on back stage because every number calls for another appealing costume from the singers and dancers.

Ya Can't Get a Man with a Gun, but you can get an evening's spectacular entertainment with a ticket to Showstoppers. Here's a show Ya Can't Say No to. (Oaklahoma) So when you go, you should Go Like Elsie.(Cabaret) Here It Is folks. Did you catch that one? Here it Is from Paint Your Wagon.

Early on in the production I realized that the narrator was none other than Steve Wynn himself. Remember If They Could See Me Now from Sweet Charity. How about Once in a Lifetime from Stop the world I want to Get Off. The immensely talented Randal Keith sings that one. You may remember him from Phat Pack or Phantom The Las Vegas Spectacular or his royal performance as the king in Spamalot.

The singers are award winning stars. The dancers could hold their own with the best of Broadway. Before the show ends, you will get to see a Chorus Line in all its glory. If I have anything negative to say it is that most of the songs are in fact Showstoppers. I was on fabulous sensory overload.

According to Steve Wynn himself, “In the 45 years I've been doing this, I've never felt as proud or as satisfied with any project I've ever been involved with as much as I am with this one.” The chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts went on to say, “I was beginning to miss the magic and delicious joy of watching gifted artists perform with great music, and so I hope the public loves the show as much as I do.”

Well Mr. Wynn, I've always loved Broadway and I thank you for bringing us a large dose of the magic of Broadway shows. ShowStoppers performs Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with no performances on Sundays and Mondays. All guests must be five or older; children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
