    Trying to decide on which shows I want to see while I am here and this seems like it would be a fun one to see..would anyone recommend this show?

    I saw it AGES ago when it was at the Greek Isles (RIP) We loved it. But with that much time, I can't in good conscience recommend the current show. But if you like the music of the Rat Pack, personally I'd go for it!!!

    I've read a lot of decent reviews about how much fun and old-school this show is, @amk121.
    I'd go in a hot minute.
    I hope you have a great trip. :beer:

    We really liked it. If you like the Rat Pack you'll like the show.

    Same here...saw it at the GI more than ten years ago. Tipped the guy a sawbuck and he put us ringside. It was great, but I'd have no idea about this show either. I'd definitely see it again, but as you can tell from my avatar, I'm a pretty bigtime Rat Pack nerd.

    Yeah, we saw it awhile ago (snicker, snicker) while there still was a Joey Bishop charachter. It was at the Plaza and I had found a promo for a free steak dinner with the show for about $10 more (I think the whole package was about $70 or so). My dad - the big tipper - slipped a fin and got us the front table abutting the stage.

    Yeah, that's my bald head, and that's my mom posing for the photo. Her first trip to Vegas. Hasn't been back, while I've been back about 25 times since.

    I'm not a big show guy, but a few years ago I checked out the Tuscany and couldn't win a penny. I needed to have some non-gambling time, so throwing caution to the wind, I took it in. I found it surprisingly entertaining and enjoyable.

    I just never "got" these guys. I'm not much for crooner-type singers. I did, however, enjoy the story about Sinatra threatening to pull the Rat Pack from the Sands until Sammy Davis Jr. was allowed to stay in a suite there just like the others. In addition, that opened the door for other black entertainers, who previously had to find sleeping accommodations over on the west-side of Las Vegas rather than where they performed and drew crowds.

    It was great at Greek Isles around 10 years ago. Do they still have a Marilyn Monroe cameo? Thought that was a nice touch.

    The show is a lot of fun. I laughed when they said people lined up early.....they really do. They let us sit at the bar and they were the last spots available. The place gets packed but it's a really cool show. By far my favorite show to see in Vegas over the last 5 years.

    If anyone goes, I believe the Tuscany still offers a dinner and show package for just a small amount more. Take advantage of it and enjoy a really nice meal at Tuscany Gardens.

    Saw it 3 years ago and it was very good. Had a great dinner at the Italian restaurant before the show as well.
    Great live music and the singers/actors sound and look the part. Drink and food prices are very reasonable.

    Saw it a couple years ago with discount tickets. They treated the discount tickets as free tickets and put us on stools at the bar off to the side for the show. I wasn't too happy, but then I realized that the others with discount tickets were being seated in the last row, in kitchen chairs along the back wall. Our seats weren't bad compared to those, I guess. I even tried to tip the usher $20 for better seats, but he said he couldn't. As for the show, the performers were good and the show was funny and entertaining. They meet all patrons outside for a chat or a picture, if you desire. I would recommend.

    The truffle ravioli at Tuscany Gardens is to die for.
