Very vague question, what are your likes and dislikes and how much are you willing to spend on a show?

Musicals/rock and roll -anything with a 60's/70,s theme. We would have liked to see Barry Manilow again but he is not there when we are.

Need a little more; what kinds of shows do you like; magic, comedy, headliners, Cirque du Soleil, Broadway, topless, etc?

Target budget per ticket?

Sorry; you answered while I was typing.

Have you seen Jersey Boys? Lots of great Frankie Valli songs in a really good Broadway show.

I can also recommend both Cher and Bette at Caesars; not sure which one is there on your dates.

Looking at a site which gives good reviews for The Jersey Boys. Friends have seen that in the UK and say it is good. I just wondered if there were any more shows along the same lines.

Methinks Jersey Boys is what you're looking for. Or the Rat Pack.

Jersey Boys is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. It's gotten great reviews.

You can guess what the Rat Pack is all about, although I've never really heard anything about it.

saw the Rat Pack while it was at 'The Greek Isles' a few years back and it was excellent.

I'm a big Rat Pack fan, but even my wife and 16 year old son loved it.

It's now on at the Plaza at Freemont street I think. Well worth a visit.

Cheers

Davy!!!

We are going to see Ray Romano and Brad Garrett at the Mirage at that time. They are there only on 09/12 and 09/13. If you go to Mirage web site, they are offering 25% off right now.
