V: Vaudeville Style Variety at Trump Plaza
Based in Las Vegas, V: The Ultimate Variety Show, has come east for a summer run at Trump Plaza now to Sept. 5.
The show is a wonderful, old school collection of variety acts, the kind of show that for longtime Atlantic City residents harks back to the golden era of the Steel Pier. The Music Hall Theater at the Pier presented unicyclists, puppeteers and knife throwers, and the headliner for a 15-minute set might be a 14-year-old up and comer named Stevie Wonder or the Supremes (you paid an extra quarters to set in the first 25 rows, I kid you not!).
Anyway, V show features a terrific magician who does magical things with yellow doves, Jason Byrne; a very funny MC/juggler Michael Holly; a Russian dance team, Pasha & Aliona who make the world’s fastest costume changes and America’s Got Talent winner Bianca Ryan.
Best of all it features the fabulous ventriloquist Ronn Lucas, who has graced numerous Atlantic City show stages. His act is absolutely fabulous. For information on the show go here.
