Exciting, mesmerizing and full of humor, V—The Ultimate Variety Show features some of the world's finest variety acts. Rarely the same show twice, it changes almost daily to accommodate the fast paced Vegas scene. V incorporates talent from all corners of the world to ensure the ultimate entertainment experience—a little bit of everything you can see on the strip all in one show.

The Rat Pack is Back transports the audience back when the famous Rat Pack controlled the Las Vegas nightlife. The sensational 12-piece Tribute Orchestra supports the creative cast featured in the roles of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop.

Mesmerized, starring Marc Savard, is an energetic mix of comedy, hypnosis and chaos. This show allows audience members to see talented dancers and hilarious audience volunteers live onstage as world-renowned hypnotist Marc Savard whips the crowd into a frenzy. Mesmerized is the "wildest" show on The Strip.
