About the show

Tony Danza stars in a new musical comedy based on the 1992 film about a love triangle set amongst the glitz of Las Vegas. More…

The show tells the story of Jack, a Brooklynite with an extreme fear of marriage, who finally gets up the nerve to ask his girlfriend Betsy to marry him. But when smooth-talking gambler Tommy — looking for a second chance at love — falls head-over-heels for Betsy, Jack must go to extreme heights to win back the love of his life. A romantic romp from New York to Vegas to Hawaii about the crazy things we do for love.

"It's breezy and fun, full of toe-tapping numbers, witty design touches and frequent bursts of irreverent comic inspiration. But it sputters after a tremendously entertaining first act. This is a 2½-hour musical with maybe 90 minutes' worth of decent material. Ultimately, the show feels slight."

"It’s a great surprise that the large-scale musical version of the movie is a frothy delight, a pineapple-sweet warm-up in this most frigid season...Vegas has its share of missteps—a few clunker lines, a still-slightly-sexist undertone, and what has to be the only showtune in history about skin c...
