Thunder from Down Under
The appeal of Thunder from Down Under is straightforward: handsome Australians riling up the crowd with their dance moves and flagrant shirtlessness. But the show has a charm beyond its six-packs and broad shoulders. For two decades, the blokes have entertained ladies on the Vegas strip, and now tour the world with a show the Las Vegas Review-Journal praised as having “a down ‘n’ dirty immediacy”—despite all its spectacle. Dashing pirates—including Jack Sparrow—commandeer the hearts of audience members, muscled firemen ensure the heat is cranked all the way up, and a cowboy finale adds some granite-hard refinement to the Wild West.
Paramount Hudson Valley
"A Paramount All-Talking Picture" starring Maurice Chevalier and Claudette Colbert drew great public fanfare when the Paramount Hudson Valley debuted in 1930. Then known as the Peekskill Paramount Theater, and owned by a subsidiary of mega-studio Paramount Pictures, the Westchester County Landmark stifled Great Depression and World War II woes as a grand movie house for decades. After shopping malls and TV thwarted its status as a movie house in the '70s, the palace recently reemerged as the Paramount Hudson Valley and now attracts top-name live performers. Lovingly renovated to its original 1930s sheen, the theater sports new carpet, refurbished vintage theater seats, hand-painted ceiling canvas, and opera boxes.
