STRIPLV ISSUE 0717 - VEGAS HAPPENINGS

BAZ STAR CROSSED LOVE

What would happen if musical theater married a rock concert and went to a nightclub? Well, we aren’t exactly sure, but we are pretty positive that it would be a helluva lot like the immersive entertainment spectacle that is BAZ Star Crossed Love. Get your tissues ready because BAZ was inspired by the musical mind of filmmaker Baz Luhrmann. The concert-theater fusion is guaranteed to take you on an emotional rollercoaster. And we feel confident in saying that because the show was inspired by lovey-dovey flicks like Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Strictly Ballroom, Australia and The Great Gatsby. Show time is 7 p.m. and tickets start at $64.31 and are available at the Palazzo Theater at The Palazzo or by phone at 888-983-4279.

Copperfield At The MGM

David Copperfield brings all of his vigor, illusions, and magic to the David Copperfield Theater, located within the MGM Grand Hotel complex.

The theater is spectacular with cozy seating and provides a beautiful way to witness Copperfield’s illusions. He performs two nightly shows at 7 and 9:30 p.m. with an additional Saturday show at 4 p.m. David Copperfield tickets are on sale are available for reserved seating.

EXPLORE LAKE MEAD THIS 

SUMMER IN A HOUSEBOAT

This summer, water levels at Lake Mead will be more than eight feet higher than last year, providing outdoor adventurers ample reason to take to the lake aboard a houseboat. Lake Mead National Recreation Area is one of the Top 10 most-visited National Park Service lands in the nation, and Forever Resorts offers houseboats for rent at Lake Mead’s Callville Bay Resort and Marina, located about one hour from Las Vegas and an approximately four-hour drive from Southern California. With prices starting at less than $100 per person per day and on-board amenities like private staterooms, barbecue grills, and fully equipped kitchens, houseboats make an affordable and unforgettable escape from the ordinary.

Inside, houseboats offer spacious living quarters, private staterooms, fully equipped kitchens and—of course—air conditioning. Top-level sundecks beckon both day and night when stargazing overtakes sunbathing as the pastime of choice. Outdoor barbecue grills make meal time a breeze, and everyone knows everything tastes better outdoors against a backdrop of beautiful scenery

Houseboats come in a variety of sizes—from 50-foot versions that sleep six passengers, up to the 75-foot XTreme, which sleeps up to 12 guests. Rentals are available for a minimum of three days/two nights, with per-day pricing scaled so the longer the rental period, the lower the per-day price. For more information, visit foreverresorts.com
