    I've never seen a Rat Pack show while in town...

    Which is better? Rat Pack is Back @ Rio... or Sandy Hackett's show @ LVH?

    A few years ago I saw the Rat Pack is Back at the Plaza (same show, just moved to the Rio). My parents enjoyed it with us.

    Just to make it confusing, I think (but other VMBers, please correct me as necessary) Sandy Hackett started the Rat Pack is Back, but then started a second show at LVH.

    Just to show how much time flies, read this LRJ review of both shows, when the Rat Pack is Back was at the Plaza and the Rat Pack Show was at the Sahara... just two years ago.

    Aero, I think Gregrio did a pretty comprehensive review of the two. Run a search of his stuff, I have never been disappointed with his opinion.

    You're right on 'mjames1229'...Sandy Hackett along with another fellow in the 'pack'
    started up the Show...it played the Plaza downtown.
    Issues arose and that version...'divorced' and Sandy started his own version that tours
    and works the LVH now.

    I've seen both....
    Sandy is the better 'Joey' but I prefer the 'other' Rat Pack Show at the RIO over all.
    I like the actors better, the Show seems tighter, and I much prefer the showroom
    at RIO over the much larger venue at LVH.

    Thanks all. I had the show @ the Rio highlighted and circled. It's now booked.
