Hairspray Gets Canned

Looks like the 'Broadway in Vegas' experiment may be seeing the end of the road. Less that two weeks after 'Avenue Q' closed at Wynn Las Vegas another B'way hit transplanted to Sin City has been unceremoniously ejected. Yes folks, 'Hairspray' has flamed out - last show is this Sunday.

Frankly we got sick and tired of seeing the giant blue beehive everywhere. The adverts didn't make for compelling story, and who the hell wants to go see a broadway play when there's blackjack to play.

What does the future hold for Broadway in Vegas? Phantom of the Opera, The Producers and Spamalot are in various stages of construction/completion. We don't see this Broadway in Vegas experiment to last much longer than these shows.

The Price is Right stage show at Ballys... now that's Vegas entertainment.
