Upright Cabaret’s American Icon Series ends another stunning season with their fourth and final concert of the season entitled Viva Las Vegas — a presentation of personality and pop that honors the flashiest performers of all time: Elvis,Cher, and Elton John!
Dazzling multi-media sets the stage as special Guest Host Jimmy James sets the slinky mood with impersonations of Vegas’ biggest notables like Judy, Bette, Eartha, and evenCher. Then, get naughty under the lights as larger-than-life voices scintillate #1 smash hits like “Suspicious Minds,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves,” “If I Could Turn Back Time,” “Benny & the Jets,” “Your Song,” and more!
NBC’s Smash star Leslie Odom, Jr. (George Lucas’ Red Tails, Broadway’s Leap of Faith) leads an all-star cast including Chad Doreck (iCarly, Grease: You’re the One That I Want), Arielle Jacobs (Broadway’s In the Heights), and recording artist Karissa Noel. Led by Music Director Jamieson Trotter with the Upright Cabaret band!
With a lot of fun, flamboyance, and just a little luck, Viva Las Vegas no doubt hits the jackpot! After sold-out performances in Palm Springs and La Mirada this past weekend, Viva Las Vegas heads to Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza this Friday, June 15, at 8 p.m. and then Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood on Sunday, June 17, at 7:30 p.m. More information and tickets are available by calling (818) 736-5600 or online at www.UprightCabaret.com.
