Although he is respected for his skill and poetic performance by esteemed magicians and is considered an inspiration to many young magicians, Lim admits that he is not a magician nor a wizard and has no intention of lying to the audience. He performs carefully self-choreographed routines rather than pretending to defy the laws of physics. Combining dexterity, precision and grace, he has distilled a lifetime of training into a devious display of dancing digits. His mind-boggling finger moves are so masterful that the audience is left to wonder if what they have seen is indeed possible.

TYLER HENRY – HOLLYWOOD MEDIUM – brings his live tour – “An Evening of Hope, Healing and Closure” to the intimate Pearl Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2020 at 8 p.m.

Growing up in a small town in central California, Tyler began receiving intuitive mental images when he was only 10 years old with the foretelling of his grandmother’s death. Intimate communication with a deceased loved one evolved into “reading” classmates, and Tyler soon found himself the victim of schoolyard bullying. Between speaking to the dead and predicting people’s futures, and juggling math homework and gym class, life for a teenage medium in a small town became anything but easy. After a series of life-changing events -including a near-death experience -Tyler recognized that his passion, calling and life purpose was to bring clarity and closure to those he was privileged to read.

Word of his talents spread so quickly that 23 year-old Tyler relocated to Los Angeles and now stars in the mega hit TV series “Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry” on E! Television Network.  In each episode, the young medium sits down and has one-on–one readings with top celebrities. His celebrity list grows everyday including: Sophia Vergara, Howie Mandel, Ellen DeGeneres Jim Parsons, Eva Longoria, Allison Janney, Chrissy Metz, Kris Jenner, Bobby Brown, Portia de Rossi, Mel B, Lil’ Kim, Dr. Drew, Ru Paul, Khole and Kim Kardashian, Jamie Pressley, Megan Fox, so many more. Tyler has also added ‘best-selling author’ to his impressive resume when his first book was released. Between Two Worlds, a memoir about his journey both in Hollywood and as a medium thus far, has been published in hardcover, paperback and eBook by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Tickets for Tyler Henry – Hollywood Medium are $39.95, $49.95, $69.95, $119.95 and $249.95 (front row), plus applicable fees and go on sale Friday, Oct. 25 at 10 a.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. and guests under 21 must be accompanied by an adult.

Fairy Tale Themed Escape Rooms benefit American Cancer Society Nevada, For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Once Upon an Escape, an immersive, enchanting experience, announces the grand opening of its fairytale-themed escape rooms this August. Players have 60 minutes to decipher clues, solve riddles and escape before the clock runs out in four adventurous rooms:  Neverland, Once Upon A Time, 7 Dwarfs & Arabian Nights, plus a five-minute power room, Rumplestiltskin


In the month of October, Once Upon An Escape, is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as Halloween with ticket specials, when purchased online. Every time a guest enters the code ‘CURE2019’ at checkout; $2 off of every full price ticket purchased will go to the local American Cancer Society Nevada to help fight breast cancer.


Once Upon an Escape is also hosting the annual Halloween Town Pumpkin Patch Children’s Costume Contest, located next to Boca Park, on October 19 at 7:30pm. The first 15 children who enter will get free admission to the patch, as well as the winners in the scariest, cutest and creative costume categories will receive free passes to the fairy tale themed escape rooms. Additionally, room tickets from dates, October 25 – 31, will be discounted $3 when escape enthusiasts use the code ‘HALLOWEENMAGIC’ at the online checkout.


Aimed for adult fun, the rooms are age appropriate for ages 14+ (children are welcome with adult supervision) and ideal for both beginner and skilled escape enthusiasts.  The physically and mentally challenging rooms “lock” guests in a heavily themed room and the guests will use elements of the room to complete specified tasks within a set time limit.

The escape rooms were designed, built and are owned by the newlywed couple, often referred to as the “Charming Family,” Justice Carey and Kendra Daniels, reigning Miss Fabulous Las Vegas and popular Las Vegas vocalist.

“I have always loved fairytales, and my husband and I are escape-room enthusiasts, so it is exciting to pair the two, and see our project come to life!” says Kendra Daniels, founder of Once Upon an Escape. “My family and I are excited to introduce this fairytale-themed escape room experience to the community!


Each private room is suitable for 2-6 players, is priced at $37/person, and features discounts for locals and military. In addition to the adventurous rooms, Rumplestiltskin is a power room in which you have 5 minutes, 5 clues and is only $5 per person.

Once Upon an Escape is also a fun, creative way to integrate corporate team building, as it enhances problem-solving skills, increases communication, and motivates team members. Escape rooms can help foster respectful dialogue, a creative exchange of ideas, and encourage active listening.

The five themed fairy tale escape rooms include:

With a dash of pixie dust, soar through the London sky! Sneak up on Captain Hook’s ship and venture into the seemingly enchanting world of Neverland. But once there, you’ll need to save Wendy from the Lost Boys’ unruly grip! The clock is ticking. Outwit the crocodile and make your escape from the place where you never have to grow up!

Once Upon a Time:
It seems as though Rumplestiltskin has stolen the fairytale artifacts. You must recover the artifacts and place them on the correct pedestals-if you are to escape the room in time. But beware-things are not always as they appear!

7 Dwarfs: The fairest one is in dire need! You must help the Seven Dwarfs undo the evil and bring back to life the fairest in the land! But be quick, before she’s gone forever!
Arabian Nights: In a far-off land, buried deep within a cave, lies a magic lamp capable of granting your every desire. But be warned! Once you have entered, attempting to leave without the lamp will result in your demise! Do you have what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the King of Thieves? Find the magic lamp and make your escape in time!

Five Dollars-Five Minutes-Five Clues! Can you handle the POWER Room? Rumplestiltskin is his name. The mystery at hand is his game. Solve the clues within for your enchanted life to begin! Will you escape in time or end up entrapped by his rhyme?

The End.

About Black Christmas
Just in time for the holidays comes a timely take on a cult horror classic as a campus killer comes to face a formidable group of friends in sisterhood.

Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Imogen Poots) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters—athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O’Grady)—prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one.

As the body count rises, Riley and her squad start to question whether they can trust any man, including Marty’s beta-male boyfriend (Simon Mead), Riley’s new crush (Caleb Eberhardt) or even their esteemed classics professor (Cary Elwes). Whoever the killer is, he’s about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t about to be anybody’s victims.

From director Sophia Takal (Always Shine) from the script she wrote with April Wolfe (Widower), comes a bold new take on the 1974 slasher classic produced by Jason Blum (Halloween, Split) for his Blumhouse Productions, by Ben Cosgrove (The Good German, Rumor Has It) and by Adam Hendricks (Cam, Bloodline, Lucky) for Divide/Conquer. Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson and Jeanette Volturno will executive produce with Divide/Conquer’s Greg Gilreath and Zac Locke.

“A lush, glorious sound the likes of which you’ve never heard before.  This is not your grandmother’s ‘Superstar.’”

– Chicago Sun-Times

“A gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly musical. Turning water into top quality wine with a revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice rock musical, originally released as a concept album.”

– The Guardian






Work Light Productions recently announced casting for the 50th Anniversary Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s iconic musical, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. Winner of the 2017 Olivier Award® for Best Musical Revival, the North American presentation of the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s production officially launch at Austin’s Bass Concert Hall on Oct. 8 before visiting more than 30 cities including Las Vegas, where it will play The Smith Center for the Performing Arts Nov. 5-10. Tickets starting at $40 are available at


“We are thrilled to have put together this incredible company.  It’s now time for us to plug into the Brown Album and make that music live again on stage.  The show will resound with audiences across North America like it was written for us today,” says director Tim Sheader.


The cast is led by Aaron LaVigne (Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark, RENT) in the role of Jesus along with James Delisco Beeks (Kinky Boots, Aida) as Judas, Jenna Rubaii (Groundhog Day, American Idiot) as Jesus’ devoted follower Mary and Alvin Crawford (The Lion King, Candide) as Caiaphas.

Barnes, Derek Ferguson, Brian Golub, Brittany Rose Hammond, Garfield Hammonds, Keirsten Nicole Hodgens, Sheila Jones, Rebecca Kritzer, Jacob Lacopo, Charles McCall, Danny McHugh, Pepe Nufrio, Sarah Parker, Erick Patrick, SandyRedd, Jasmine Schmenk, and Chelsea Williams (Pepe Nufrio and Tommy Sherlock are appearing with the support of Actors’ Equity Association).


JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ, as seen through the eyes of Judas. Reflecting the rock roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’, ‘Gethsemane’ and ‘Superstar’.


The North American tour will be helmed by acclaimed director Timothy Sheader and cutting-edge choreographer Drew McOnie, with set and costume design by 2016 Tony AwardÒ nominee, Tom Scutt and music supervision by Tom Deering. Rounding out the creative team is lighting design by Lee Curran, with co-sound design by Keith Caggiano and Nick Lidster.


JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is a proven musical phenomenon with a world-wide fan base. The original 1971 concept album (commonly known as The Brown Album) was named Album of the Year on the Billboard Pop Charts, surpassing albums such as Carole King’s “Tapestry” and Janis Joplin’s “Pearl.” NBC’s recent Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert starring John Legend, Sara Bareilles and Alice Cooper won a 2018 Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special.


Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, selling out two consecutive engagements in 2016 and 2017. The production opened for a limited engagement on West End, this summer at the Barbican.

Double Dare Live! Announces Host Marc Summers’ Farewell Tour, Catch The Legendary TV Host in Action One Last Time at The Smith Center on Oct. 20








Catch the Legendary TV Host in Action One Last Time
at The Smith Center on Oct. 20

Following more than three decades at the helm of Double Dare’s slime-soaked shenanigans, Charlie Blum Entertainment / CB Entertainment and Red Tail Productions LLC, in partnership with Nickelodeon are happy – and a bit sad – to announce that the show’s legendary host, Marc Summers, will be saying goodbye to Double Dare and its live tour at the end of this year, marking the conclusion of thousands of pies, numerous chocolate-covered chickens and of course, tons of slime!

Double Dare Live! will play The Smith Center in Las Vegas on Sunday, Oct. 20. For tickets and more information, visit

Marc Summers summed it up by saying, “Going out on top has always been my goal. I was able to revive the program, both on television and in theaters across the country. ‘Double Dare’ has been a once in a lifetime experience. For over 30 years, I have had an amazing time entertaining a couple of generations. It’s always been important to me to know when to say farewell, and I believe now is that time. But this is not retirement!  I have a new show launching on Discovery, a live one many show, a documentary on my life, and a few other tricks up my sleeve!”

“I want to thank my extremely loyal fan base who first discovered me on ‘Double Dare,’ followed me over to ‘What Would You Do?,’ and continue to follow me in my career and on social media.”

“Double Dare premiered on Oct. 6, 1986, on Nickelodeon, and ran from 1986-1993, making it the network’s longest running game show. Marc Summers served as the show’s original host from 1986-1993. Shortly after its debut, “Double Dare” became one of the most popular original daily programs on cable television. The series went into syndication in 1988 and was later revived as “Super Sloppy Double Dare” in 1989.  The show also ran on broadcast television as “Family Double Dare” in 1988, followed by new versions on Nick, including “Double Dare 2000.”   Nickelodeon launched a successful revival of the show in the summer of 2018 to the great acclaim of the original super fans and a whole new generation of kids.  All new “Double Dare” episodes will air on Nickelodeon in October and December of this year.


The Double Dare Live! national tour launched with the TV revival and has announced tour dates currently through the end of 2019.  Inspired by the iconic TV game show, Double Dare Live! features two teams comprised of selected audience members competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy physical challenges and ultimately facing the legendary obstacle course.


One of the tour producers Charlie Blum said, “It has been a total joy connecting our live audiences across the country with their TV hero Marc Summers while touring Double Dare Live.  His command of the audience and the messiest game show on tour is mind-boggling and he will be sorely missed.”


Double Dare Live is produced by CB Entertainment and Red Tail Productions, LLC.

Smash-Hit Show to Complete Run at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Nov. 24, 2019


Magic Mike Live Las Vegas, which recently celebrated its 1,000th performance, will complete its celebrated introductory run at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Nov. 24, 2019, and re-open at SAHARA Las Vegas in Spring of 2020.


Heralded as “the modern strip show we deserve” by USA TODAY and “the sizzling-hot (and surprisingly empowering!) show women deserve” by Pop Sugar, Magic Mike Live Las Vegas continues to receive rave reviews from fans and critics alike since opening in April 2017.


“We are grateful to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for the support and encouragement that lifted Magic Mike Live Las Vegas into the sensation it’s become,” said Executive Producer Vincent Marini. “We think what Boz and his team are doing at the Hard Rock is going to be transformative for the property and we wish them great success. As they are temporarily closing for their renovations, we have found a new home at SAHARA Las Vegas. The vision that Alex Meruelo has for SAHARA Las Vegas has electrified everyone at Magic Mike Live and we’re looking forward to adding to the incredible energy being created at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip.”


Marini said the opening date, ticket on-sale and additional information will be announced in the months ahead so fans have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the show’s opening at SAHARA Las Vegas in 2020.  Marini encourages fans to purchase tickets soon for the original show at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino as they anticipate the final performances to sell quickly.


SAHARA Las Vegas is currently undergoing a $150 million renovation and Paul Hobson, Senior Vice President & General Manager, says Magic Mike Live Las Vegas is an ideal fit for the property’s transformation.


“We couldn’t have found an edgier, more high-profile show than Magic Mike Live Las Vegas to be the entertainment centerpiece for SAHARA Las Vegas,” said Hobson. Jeff Henry, President of Meruelo Entertainment added, “The opportunity to create a memorable experience for our guests is the cornerstone for SAHARA Las Vegas’ entertainment platform.  Magic Mike Live Las Vegas will flourish at SAHARA as we continue to evolve the resort.”


Hard Rock Hotel & Casino President and CEO Richard Bosworth said, “Magic Mike Live has been an incredible partner and asset to Hard Rock and we are proud of launching the brand here with them. We are excited about our property-wide renovation and support their need to find a new home during the remodel. We wish with them all the best with their next chapter.”


The flagship Las Vegas production of Magic Mike Live has created an international sensation with Magic Mike Live London breaking box office records and performing to sold-out audiences since opening less than a year ago and a just-announced production opening in Berlin this winter. Additional productions of Magic Mike Live are being planned around the globe.


“Well…we’ve always dreamed of stripping on the strip…and now the day has finally come!  But seriously, when we created Magic Mike Live Las Vegas just two years ago, we never imagined it would become what it is today,” said the show’s Creator and Director, Channing Tatum. “We have an incredible sold-out production in London, a brand-new show and venue opening in Berlin this winter, another big announcement coming soon, and now this insane opportunity to build the show and space of our dreams at SAHARA Las Vegas. Huge thanks to the Hard Rock for believing in us and giving us our start, and we absolutely can’t wait to dive in with Alex and SAHARA Las Vegas to take Magic Mike Live to the next level!”


Tickets for the remaining performances at the Hard Rock Casino & Hotel can be purchased at and stay connected on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.


Hailed as “the modern strip show we deserve” by USA Today, declared “the most-buzzed-about new production” in Las Vegas by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and celebrated as “the show that has everything you could ever want” by Glamour UK, MAGIC MIKE LIVE LAS VEGAS is a first-class entertainment experience based on the hit films Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. Serving as “the cure to the common male revue” (Las Vegas Sun), the show recreates the mythic Club Domina as a cabaret nightclub space that has been fully redesigned to capture the magnetism of the Magic Mike franchise.  The state-of-the-art venue is designed with the capabilities to house a show that features 13 of the hottest and most talented men in the country performing in front of, behind, above and all around the audience.  Conceived by Channing Tatum and co-directed by Tatum and film franchise choreographers Alison Faulk and Teresa Espinosa, the show features sexy and daring themed dance and strip routines punctuated by one of a kind acts from a wildly diverse cast of performers.  MAGIC MIKE LIVE LAS VEGAS is a sizzling 360-degree dance and acrobatic strip tease spectacular guaranteed to bring on the heat.
