Last month, Wynn Las Vegas abruptly announced its show inspired by Broadway’s legendary musicals, Steve Wynn’s Showstoppers, would shutter on September 30. Now, it’s going to stick around through the end of the year.
“Due to the outpouring of enthusiasm and support for the musical spectacular in the weeks following the announcement of the show’s closing, Showstoppers has been extended to December 31, 2016,” says a statement released Friday. ShowStoppers is performed Monday through Thursday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Friday at 8:00 p.m. Ticket prices are $100, $125 and $150, plus fees.
The production show directed by Philip William McKinley opened in November 2014 and is the only show on the Las Vegas Strip to feature a full orchestra, according to Wynn. UNLV director of jazz studies Dave Loeb leads the orchestra, and Emmy Award winner Marguerite Derricks is the choreographer.
