Norm: Steve Wynn vs. Dragone - La Reve to be Overhauled

After a year of mixed or bad reviews, endless overhauls and tweaks, it looks like Steve Wynn has finally lost his patience with Franco Dragone's La Reve. Norm at the Review-Journal is reporting that Mr. Wynn has commandeered the faltering stage show and will be instituting major changes in the next 6 months... perhaps in an effort to move the show away from its Cirque du Soleil roots to something more fantasmic. VT isn't surprised by this, we took in this show in August of last year and were quite unimpressed if not straight up bored.

Here's an excerpt of Norm:

The status of "Le Reve" creator-producer Franco Dragone is in question. Sources say Dragone is "stepping back," with Steve Wynn taking control of the creative content of the aquatic production at Wynn Las Vegas. A Wynn front office executive, reached Saturday, said it would be inaccurate to say Dragone is "out," but declined further comment.

Wynn "wants lasers, pyrotechnics ... special effects as the emphasis of the show," according to an insider. All changes will take effect by Jan. 31, said one source.
