WOW creates a fantastical tableau
WOW stands for “World of Wonder,” but there are multiple worlds of entertainment here. An international phenomenon witnessed by more than 2.5 million people before landing in Las Vegas, WOW blends elements of an old-school Vegas variety show with modern staging and a soundtrack of familiar, beloved music for an immersive and intimate experience.
Overstuffed with acrobatics, dancing, comedy, juggling, and specialty performers such as “The Human Fountain” Dickinson Oppong and America’s Got Talent crossbow expert Silvia Silvia, WOW offers nonstop action set against colorful and dramatic landscapes created by 3-D projections.
The audience joins the voyage of curious, silly star Alberto as he discovers an alternative universe where beautiful mermaids emerge from a sparkling lake, pirates frolic, a goofy chef does the moonwalk and spins plates, a trio of roller skaters rotates in a tight circle at unbelievable speeds, and athletic acrobats defy physics performing on poles and ropes. WOW offers anything and everything its audience can imagine and puts it all up close and personal in a cozy 180-degree theater environment that hearkens back to the classic, hard-to-find Las Vegas production show.
Rio, 7 p.m. Tues.-Thurs., 7 & 9 p.m. Fri.-Sun., starting at $49 plus tax and fee. 702.777.2782
