Opening in July at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas, “A Mob Story” will entertain audiences with an original production that tells the “tale of how the Mob made Las Vegas, and how Vegas took down the Mob.” The limited engagement show will feature 180-degree visual effects and world class choreography set to today’s popular music, influenced by wiseguys, gangsters, and mistresses to the mob.
Created and directed by Emmy and Golden Globe award winner, Jeff Kutash, “A Mob Story” is presented on stage by the last Godfather, former Colombo family capo, Michael Franzese. A true “made man,” Franzese will provide an unprecedented authentic journey into the secret world of the mafia as the show’s host. Former city of Las Vegas Mayor and illustrious mob attorney, Oscar B. Goodman will be an ambassador to the show with special appearances.
“Downtown Las Vegas is where Vegas began, and the Plaza has been a downtown iconic hotel for decades. Our vintage showroom is the perfect place for the debut of this amazing show that will entertain audiences, young and old,” said Jonathan Jossel, Plaza CEO. “The mob is big part of the intrigue of Las Vegas, and as we welcome more visitors to downtown, we are proud to offer them a fresh Vegas experience on a historic tale. ‘A Mob Story,’ with its unparalleled leadership and world-class production staff, will give audiences a glimpse of Vegas history in an unforgettable way.”
Kutash, known for creating 12-time “Las Vegas Show of the Year,” “Splash,” has recruited a first-class team of dance masters and Broadway theatrical designers to bring “A Mob Story” to life on the stage. The show’s supervising choreographer, Brian Friedman, has worked with mega music artists including Britney Spears, Cher, Beyonce Knowles and Mariah Carey. He partners with choreographers Will “Willdabeast” Adams, Janelle Ginestra, Tracy Philips, and Shannon Mather, who add to the production diverse dance styles staged to an eclectic contemporary music score featuring a stellar cast of 25 singers, actors, and dancers.
