Musicians often cultivate a dynamic stage persona by filling their shows with multiple costume changes, elaborate choreography, and family-vacation slideshows. Feast your eyes and ears on a thrilling performance with today's GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get one ticket for general-admission seating to see BeatleShow! at the Saxe Theater, located in the Miracle Mile Shops inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (up to a $65.67 value, including all fees). Performances are held nightly at 5:30 p.m.
With the costumes, music, and lyrics of the famed foursome from Liverpool, BeatleShow! cranks out an authentic concert from the Beatles’s catalog of hits. In crisp ties and moptops, the cast of Formerly Fab Four Live dips into the band’s early repertoire with “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” As the 1960s transition from well-pressed suits to the psychedelic freedom of tie-dyed mustaches, so does the spectacle unfolding on stage. Colorful, trippy military outfits march onto stage as the quartet metamorphoses into Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. During “Hey Jude,” John lights a candle, slides behind a grand piano, and beckons the audience to join him in uncovering new lyrical complexities in the famous song-ending refrain.
Producer and V Theater owner David Saxe was born into Vegas show business, raised by a mother who danced at Les Folies Bergere and a father who led the band for the Rat Pack. Saxe’s V Theater runs its nine concurrent shows in a 40,000-square-foot space divided into four showrooms on multiple floors, each retaining an intimate feeling with seating that brings the audience closer to performers. The V Theater’s current shows range from a seven-act, family-friendly Ultimate Variety Show to Marc Savard’s Comedy Hypnosis, an entertaining act where Savard persuades audience members to hilariously dance, act like animals, and ghostwrite his autobiography.
