There are plenty of worthwhile productions playing on the Strip that don’t always immediately come to mind when people think of the city’s many must-see shows. From a celebrity impersonator show guaranteed to have ticket holders doing a double take to a zombie musical production that’s anything but dead on arrival, here are three of the city’s best-kept show secrets.
“FRANK MARINO’S DIVAS LAS VEGAS” AT THE LINQ HOTEL & CASINO
Not your typical tribute show, this fast-paced production is far from a drag. Hosted by Las Vegas’ longest-running headliner, Frank Marino, the show features a cast of stunning female impersonators paying tribute to some of music’s most iconic singers, including Cher and P!nk. Throughout the show, Marino (who starts off the evening as Joan Rivers) is sure to amaze guests with his jaw-dropping gowns and hilarious, yet slightly inappropriate, jokes. The production concludes with a heartfelt number about “what makes a man a man” that leaves audiences cheering—and with a newfound respect for the art of female impersonation. caesars.com/linq/shows/frank-marinos-divas-las-vegas
“JEFF CIVILLICO: COMEDY IN ACTION” AT PARIS LAS VEGAS
A euphoric experience the whole family will enjoy, this action-packed production features the comedy and juggling stylings of one of the Strip’s most charismatic performers, Jeff Civillico. Whether he’s riding a unicycle or balancing a 12-foot ladder on his chin, audience members of all ages will be in awe of Civillico’s impressive feats. Some guests might even find themselves onstage with Civillico, whether they’re helping him out with a bit or he’s trying to teach them one of his unique talents, during the show. jeffcivillico.com
“ZOMBIE BURLESQUE” AT V THEATER INSIDE MIRACLE MILE SHOPS
