Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Apr 1, 2007 03:27PM)
The first ever Variety Arts Mega Resort is about to be announced...thought I'd leak a bit. Todd Robbins, David Copperfield and the design work of Doug Higley will combine to create a unique Vegas experience geared to the nostalgia of Victorian Mysteries and Magic. Vaudeville and Sideshow Acts will headline on the 10 small stages situated smack in the middle of the main gaming floor. In the 10 story atrium will be a display of rare exotic waterfowl on the one side and an Amazon walk through Rain Forest on the other complete with Monkeys and Crocodiles. Copprfield while not performing (regularly) will Produce and Robbins will write and Direct as well as headline the first year. Rooms will be decorated in the style of Victorian Music Halls and there will be 'Feature' rooms honoring performers throughout history.
Look to the Wall Street Journal (tomorrow) for the full story.

Doug

To contact John Strong, just open a window and say, "I am good at what I do." You will hear, coming in loudly from the West, a voice yelling, "I AM BETTER THAN YOU. YOU ARE A MARK!!!!!!!!!!!"

Congrats to Mr Higley & Todd :)

And with John Strong himself involved things can only go great... I can't believe I just said that... really... it actually physically hurt just to type it out.

David, did you look at the date on the original post? There's no need to self-mutilate your fingers, though, if you really want to, I'll be happy to pitch it, and sell tickets!
Message: Posted by: DavidEscapes (Apr 13, 2007 01:58PM)
Hehe.. nope. I didn't see the date. I thought it was a new thread :)
