Everything You Should Know About Summer Entertainment in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Strip

A breakdown of some fresh and classic performances happening this season in Las Vegas.

You may know Las Vegas for its nightclubs, casinos and cuisine, but the entertainment capital of the world has another secret weapon: its top-notch shows and world-class theater. Offering performances from around the world, the Las Vegas line-up embraces a variety of genres and cultures. With performances throughout summer, there are so many wonderful shows and venues to experience.


This spring, The Smith Center located in Downtown Las Vegas is a 61-acre Symphony Park that continues to offer a diverse arrangement of entertainment. The Smith Center will feature classic hits such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera in May or Something Rotten in August. Or feel the rhythms of R&B and soul with the Soul Men in The Smith Center's Cabaret Jazz Theater. Sit back and grab a bite and some drinks while enjoying the classic hits of The Temptations, The Supremes and The Four Tops.


Ongoing hit comedies continue to make their rounds, such as Menopause the Musical at Harrah's Las Vegas, a hilarious musical about mood swings and hot flashes. Also on the comedy circuit is 50 Shades! The Parody at Bally's Las Vegas, a satirical take on the 50 Shades of Grey franchise seen through the perspective of a trio of girlfriends at a book club gathering. On the opposite end of the genre spectrum, experience the gravity defying acrobatics of Absinthe. This acro-cabaret show has been hailed as a provocative blend of Cirque du Soleil meets Rocky Horror Picture Show.


Vegas also offers fresh new sounds for its visitors set on the music track. Catch country music superstars Reba McEntire, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn for a one-time-only music residency at The Colosseum Las Vegas. Otherwise break into some pop classics with the Human Nature Jukebox in the Sands Showroom. Or if a fusion of rat pack glamour and funk is more your style, Las Vegas headliner Frankie Moreno performs on a smaller and more intimate scale at The Cabaret Jazz Theater in The Smith Center through May.

Vegas continues to grow its theater shows and musical residencies, becoming the top destination for a wide collection of live performances. With anything from a 50 Shades! fan show to a jazz singer belting Shirley Bassey, there's little you won't be able to catch in Vegas this year.
