The Space Announces Fall Concert Schedule with Broadway and Hollywood Recording Stars

 

The Space Gets Hotter this Fall
with Broadway and Hollywood Recording Stars

The Space just west of the Las Vegas Strip announces Fall Concert Schedule

 

LAS VEGAS, AUG. 16, 2018 — With a venue reminiscent of San Francisco’s underground music scene in the 1960s, The Space has quickly earned a reputation for hip and intimate experiences unparalleled in the city built on exceptional entertainment. Located just behind Aria and The Cosmopolitan, The Space is announcing an eclectic fall concert and event lineup that includes Tony winner John Lloyd Young from Jersey Boys, Wicked star and recording artist Shoshana Bean, brilliant Native American performance artist Alexandro Querevalú, and Michael Winslow of Police Academy.

 

Initially created as the home of Mondays Dark, a twice-monthly celebrity-driven variety show that has raised more than $800,000 for local charities in southern Nevada, The Space also has emerged as the haven for the arts and artists in Las Vegas, presenting a wide variety of avant-garde concerts, performances, comedy shows, and other events in an intimate setting.

 

“In a short period, The Space has captured the attention of the entertainment scene here in Las Vegas and beyond,” said Mark Shunock, the venue’s owner and creator. “I knew we would host some amazing shows in between Mondays Dark, but I never thought that our funky theatre off the Strip would attract the national and international talent it has. In The Space, audiences appreciate the up-close and personal vibe they get with the performers.”

 

The autumn concert line-up includes:

Aug. 30            Stage Door Cabaret: Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding – An inside look at the show with the cast performing songs and skits, sharing stories, and more

Sept. 16           Divas Mexicanas – A spectacular Mexican Independence Day show with full mariachi featuring Graciela Beltrán-La Reina Del Pueblo, Rosenda Bernal and Mary Boquitas

Sept. 26           Stage Door Cabaret: VEGAS! THE SHOW – An inside look at the show with the cast performing songs and skits, sharing stories, and more

Sept. 28           Monica Heuser – Menopause: The Musical, Composer’ Showcase, Ivey Award Winner

Oct. 2              Rita Lim – accomplished jazz vocalist

Oct. 5              Project Nunway – fashion show of recyclables and household items benefitting the nonprofit Sin Sity Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Oct. 12                        Michael Winslow – comedian, vocal sound artist and star of Police Academy

Oct. 25-26       Shoshana Bean – star of Wicked on Broadway and recording artist whose SPECTRUM debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz charts

Oct. 27            Pavlo – nominee for Smooth Jazz Guitarist of the Year and Best Instrumental Album of the Year

This fall, The Space also will premier ComedySportz, the internationally-acclaimed and hilarious improvisational comedy group featuring two teams of professionals who compete for laughs, points and audience support. Shows are scheduled for Friday, Sept. 21 and Saturday, Oct. 6 and 20. Monday’s Dark will return on Sept.10 and 17 and Oct. 8 and 22, with proceeds benefitting the following nonprofit organizations:

 

Aug. 6 – Leaders in Training  
Aug. 20 – Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada  
Sept. 10 – Alzheimer’s Association Desert Southwest Chapter  
Sept. 17 – Officer Down
Oct. 8 – Adam’s Place

AIDS Walk Las Vegas on April 17

Get ready to “Make Your Mark” at the 26th Annual AIDS Walk Las Vegas on Sunday, April 17 at Town Square starting at 8:30 a.m. with some of The Strip’s top performers showing support.

AFAN’s largest fundraiser of the year, AIDS Walk Las Vegas saw 6,000 walkers in 2015 raising more than $400,000 to directly benefit supportive services to stabilize and empower the 3,000 clients living with or affected by HIV.

Penn & Teller will serve as grand marshals for the 15th consecutive year and leaders of the Penn & Teller Challenge, offering five tiers of fundraising incentives including complimentary show tickets to Frank Marino’s Divas and Rock Of Ages, plus tickets and VIP backstage passes to Blue Man Group. The top challenger will be awarded with complimentary show tickets, a photo opp and exclusive meet & greet with Britney Spears. For every $250 raised by a challenger, Penn & Teller will match the donation dollar for dollar. Mercedes and JC from Mercedes in the Morning on Mix 94.1 will host the opening ceremony, kicking off with Rachel Tyler of Steve Wynn’s ShowStoppers singing the National Anthem. Las Vegas entertainers will show their support with performances from Absinthe’s “Green Fairy” Melody Sweets, VEGAS! The Show, Twisted Vegas, Venetian headliners Human Nature and Steve Wynn’s ShowStoppers.

Several politicians will address the crowd, including Councilman Stavros Anthony, Mayor Pro Tem Steven Ross, Senator Kelvin Atkinson and Senator Harry Reid.

“Las Vegas community members donate their time, money and talents every year and show tremendous support to AFAN and its mission but there is always more work to be done,” said AFAN Executive Director Antioco Carrillo. “HIV/AIDS is everyone’s public health issue and does not discriminate by gender, race or socioeconomic status. It is through this sense of community and duty that we can come together to truly make a difference.”

People of all ages are encouraged to participate and registration is free. For additional information and to register, visit afanlv.org.

Annual presenting sponsors of AIDS Walk include Caesars Entertainment, Walgreens, Penn & Teller, CBS Radio, Greenspun Media Group, PDQ Printing, AGR, Jamba Juice and Snell & Wilmer.
