Travel Weeklys Las Vegas E-letter: Sept. 5, 2006

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 Tickets for groups of 15 or more can be reserved by calling (800) 828-3830.

CIRQUE DU 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.

A NEW 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.

THOSE 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.
