Even at age 70, Wayne Newton remains one of the hardest-working men in showbiz. Known to millions as “The Midnight Idol,” “Mr. Entertainment,” and “Mr. Las Vegas,” the charismatic crooner has been enchanting audiences for decades, channeling his multi-instrumental talents and penchant for pizzazz into a charmed life of TV, radio, movie, and casino ubiquity. Celebrated for giving back to countless worthwhile causes, the magnanimous, award-winning showman also shows off his famously sugary tenor and bubbly wit during his delightful live shows highlighted by spirited hits, jokes, and anecdotes. Fans can expect to hear classics such as “Summer Wind,” “Daddy, Don’t You Walk So Fast,” and Wayne’s signature smash “Danke Schoen,” which some fans might recall from the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, while others remember it simply because they’re German.

NYCB Theatre at Westbury
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.
