    That is disappointing. I have seen the show numerous times since it moved to Trop and I would think it brings much needed traffic to Tropicana. It certainly has been the most successful show they've had there. Hope they find a strip home.

    Damn! This was one of my favorite shows, I've seen it three times. I hope they're correct in that this just means a move somewhere else again.

    It looks like Jan Rouen's final trick may have been to kill this show off as well, since Tropicana really needed two big shows to justify the upkeep costs of their larger show space, and with him gone it's not worthwhile to have a show like this that, while popular, never really sells out.

    RTRV has been constantly losing money at the Trop. There is no way for them not to move, or even fold.

    Thats a shame. Great show. I really hope they find a new home.

    Til then I will continue to see Million Dollar Quartet.

    Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins & Johnny Cash.

    Fantastic, and true story.

    Good luck RTRV. Hope to see you again......

    Sad to hear. The one show I thought enough of to see a second time. And, I would have/will see it a third time. I imagine they will land on their feet!
     
    Will give them a try!
