The 80-minute comedic musical is centered around Linda, still reeling from her divorce, as her friends turn her despair into a weekend of hilarity. Hailed as a blend of “Sex and the City with Dr. Phil, Oprah and SNL,” the show uses laughs, songs and the occasional shock factor to explore the realities of divorce, long term relationships and moving on.

“A version of this production has played in cities across the country to great success but I always knew that it was meant for Las Vegas,” said Mark Schwartz lead producer, “My team and I couldn’t be happier to be in our new home inside Windows Showroom and we can’t wait to introduce the show to a new audience.”

“You don’t have to have gone through a divorce to enjoy this show,” said Dr. Amy Botwinick co-author and producer, “The storyline is incredibly funny, heartfelt and at times a little risqué but most importantly everyone in the audience can relate.”

Ticket prices for Divorce Party Las Vegas are $49/$65 plus taxes and fees.  Platinum VIP tickets are offered for guests looking to enhance their experience for $80 and include a round of specialty drinks, premier seating and a meet & greet with the cast.  Performances are Saturday – Thursday at 8 p.m.

MONTECORE, the white tiger who appeared in thousands of performances with Siegfried & Roy during the duo's record-setting run at The Mirage, passed away after a short illness on March 19. He was 17.

"The world has lost one of its most majestic creatures and I have lost a brother," said Roy. "I will forever believe it was his concern for my safety and well-being that caused him to act as he did on that night long ago. We spent many hours together and he never failed to bring me great joy and wonderment. It was my great honor to be beside him at the end. He is now playing with his siblings in White Tiger heaven."

Roy added: "His contribution to the avalanche of awareness for conservation and preservation has made him unforgettable. His spirit will live forever with Siegfried & Roy and his multitude of fans."

The Heart Center at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center performed another first for the region on March 21, with the IMPLANTATION OF NEVADA'S FIRST MEDTRONIC REVEAL LINQ INSERTABLE CARDIAC MONITOR. Dr. Arjun Gururaj, Interventional Cardiologist and Medical Director of the Electrophysiology Program at Sunrise Hospital, performed the implantation.  This device is available for both adult and pediatric patients.
