TICKETS for the much-anticipated production
of Mel Brooks The Producers at Paris-Las Vegas go on sale at 9 a.m.
Oct. 27 for performances February through April. Show times and
price structures will be announced next month, according to
property officials. The musical comedy, which will be the only
permanent production of the show outside New York, was originally
supposed to debut this fall. However, property officials felt it
was better to open the show after the holiday season and during the
2007 convention season, said Michael Weaver, vice president of
marketing for Paris-Las Vegas. Tickets can be purchased by phone at
(877) 374-7469 or online at www.parislasvegas.com. Tickets for groups of 15
or more can be reserved by calling (800) 828-3830.
SOLEIL is at it again, this time signing on to create a
permanent Elvis show at MGM Mirages CityCenter project. The deal
was reached with CKX, Inc. and its subsidiary, Elvis Presley
Enterprises. The show is expected to open with the 60-story,
4,000-room hotel-casino property in November 2009.
MONORAIL TRAIN is on the tracks, and its all decked out to
celebrate NBA All-Star, a week-long celebration beginning Feb. 15
that leads up to the big basketball game, which will be played Feb.
18 in Las Vegas Thomas & Mack Center. The exterior of the
four-car monorail train features images of a nine-foot basketball
amidst glowing yellow starbursts and the National Basketball
Association logo. Inside, the train cars sport three-dimensional
imaging of a basketball hoop and hardwood floors painted to
resemble a basketball court.
IMPROMPTU, wee-hours-of-the-morning nuptials for which Las
Vegas is known may be a thing of the past, thanks to the Board of
County Commissioners for Clark County. The board voted, effective
Aug. 30, to eliminate the graveyard shift for the Marriage Bureaus
main office at 201 Clark Ave. Now, prospective brides and grooms
can only apply for a marriage license between the hours of 8 a.m.
and midnight. For more information, the office can be reached at
(702) 671-0600, or by fax at (702) 385-8911.
