Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one general-admission ticket to BeatleShow! at the Saxe Theater (up to a $57 value), located inside the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Shows run at 5:30 p.m. seven nights a week.
BeatleShow! transports audiences back to the 1960s in a rock 'n' roll tribute concert that celebrates the musical legacy of the world's more famous band. A talented quartet of musicians treats guests to the sights, sounds, smells, and shag-haircuts of a real live Beatles concert as they take to the stage costumed as John, Paul, George, and Shemp, covering everything from "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" to "Hey Jude." As minds wander back to the psychedelic glory days of "Yellow Submarine" or the innocence of "Please, Please, Me," eyes and ears can bask in the nostalgia of a melodic lineup rife with swinging choruses, sing-alongs, lavish costumes, and the occasional scavenger hunt.
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.
