This was the first time at this casino. We found parking and then had to walk, walk, walk to find the place which is typical for most casinos. The signage was POOR, the cigerrette smoke INTENSE. Finally found the place and picked up tickets and stood in line to wait for show.
Surprised that people did not dress up really as this was an evening show. Also, attendance on a weekend night was 1/2 full.
When you go into the theatre they try to take your picture with "Dean". To me this is tacky. If they want to do it after the show fine but not before!
Paid $10.00 more for VIP seating but was surprised that the theatre was kind of tacky! The the seats are not "theatre" seats but straight back chairs. For the most part they were comfortable but felt like a sardine. Luckily, the stage was close by so visibility was excellent, especially as we were above the Gold Ticket tables and therefore had no "heads" in our way.
Before the show they had large screens that showed old Vegas and had Rat Pack Trivia which was informative, i.e. what was Dean Martin's nick name? How many wives did Frank Sinatra have? What is a racket?..etc..wish I remembered more of it..
Coctail waitresses come around nad take yor drink order. I got wine ( $7) and my mother got water ( $4). The couple next to us got the same yet their bill was $10.00..hmmm
The act itself was good overall. I liked Frank and Dean the best and Joey provided comic relief. Sammy did not do justice to the real one, I thought. Not enough vocal diction..The music was fabulous. Loved it!! The audience was lackluster. As my 81 year old mother said " they were dead"..this hindered the show some. Felt bad for the performers.
The show was about 75 minutes...too short..would have liked a couple more songs. There were opportunities to have your picture taken will all of them at the end. ( where they show prices, I have no idea as I didn't see any and wasn't going to ask. ) There is a gift shop but it is small and it was too crowded so didn't look. I'll go on-line and get a Rat Pack CD to get my memories.
I am glad I went but I thought the venue was alittle over priced from what you got. Plus I found the casino to be TACKY!
