Dress Code for shows??

We are going to Vegas in August and will be attending Mystere and Phantom of the Opera.

What is the dress code for these types of shows?

Thanks

Greg

There are no dress codes for shows in Vegas. Most people wear what makes them comfortable. I'm an old lady, and always like to look decent and appropriate, but you'll see folks in everything from jorts and wife beaters to wedding gowns. Enjoy the shows. Loved 'Phantom'; 'Mystere', not so much.

Whatever you want, or whatever you're already wearing.

I wore jeans and a nice but casual top, which is the same thing I wear to gamble, shop, see the sights, or whatever. I didn't feel under-dressed. But I also don't think I would have felt over-dressed if I'd worn a dress.

Only requirement is you have tickets and a wallet full of cash and/or plastic. Clothes are optional. Otherwise no one gives a chit!

Some people do find the theaters too cool because of the A/C (I am not one of them) so keep that in mind .

No matter what you wear- there will be people who are more casually dressed than you are and others that are more formally dressed. Shorts/tees/torn jeans/business casual/formalwear- you will see them all. Some people like to dress up at night while just as many (if not more) don't bother.

Vegas tends to be a casual town- especially during the summer.

Gotcha thanks everyone.

I will most likely be in business casual attire (decent pants and a collared shirt) since I will be in seminars all day for 4 days so I just wanted to know what to tell the wife to wear.

Thanks!

"Unfortunately, there is no dress code!!"

So true. Back in the days (50's 60's 70's, and early 80's) when Vito ran the joint, they would have escorted you out and broke your knee caps for showing up in jeans or shorts. Then the families and law showed up ruining everything..

No dress code. Wear what is comfortable.

There is no reason why a man can't wear a suit and a woman can't wear a cocktail dress every night, if that is what they want to wear-even in the heat of the summer. Nobody is forcing anyone to wear shorts, jeans, etc. If you want to dress up every night- do it!!! You won't feel out of place.

like everyone says you will see everything in vegas from casual to very dressy. it all depends on what you like. my wife and i usually go out to nice restaurants or shows or clubs or lounges every night and actually enjoy dressing up. my wife wears sexier type outfits that she normally doesnt wear at home. vegas is an adult playground so i say have some fun and do things you normally dont do at home. in a weeks time youll be home back to the same old grind. i think you would be surprised how many guys would like to see their wives dressed up but in todays society most people dont want to put the effort into it.
