Once home to Sinatra, George Burns and Liberace, the Riviera Hotel & Casino now features a new generation of entertainment.
The Riviera Hotel and Casino on the Strip, former home to legendary greats Sinatra, George Burns, Liberace and others, is noted in the Las Vegas history record for being the first to pay headliners big money. Back in the 1950s, Liberace was the first to get $50K per week.
Today, the resort has Ice Direct From Russia, a skating spectacular show, as its main production. The Riviera also has four other shows, including An Evening at La Cage starring Frank Marino, Crazy Girls, a sexy-topless show, along with The Riviera Comedy Club. Their latest addition, The Sopranos Last Supper, is an audience participation show based on the old mob days.
The Riviera also has the La Bistro Theatre with the outrageous comedy hypnotist, Dr. Scott Lewis; Jay White in his tribute to Neil Diamond; Barbra and Frank: The Concert that Never Was, and An Evening with Dean and Friends. Call (702) 794-9433 for information.
My book of poetry entitled "Messages" was inspired by my dear friends C.J. Cansler along with Victoria Boone and Beryl Warren.
The group of poems along with some beautiful photographs are to inspire the reader.
