After five years at the Tropicana, magician Dirk Arthur debuts Dirk Arthur’s Wild Magic at O’Sheas. The 60-minute show features comedy, dance, magic and exotic cats. But the most striking thing is the small upstairs showroom, which allows audiences to see uncaged tigers, leopards, panthers and more at a range as close as 10 feet. The show is nightly at 7 and 9 p.m. starting Sept. 15, dark Wednesdays and Fridays, $23-$34, 733-3333.
My all-time favorite show was Siegfried & Roy. Originally, they inspired me to work with the big cats. I love the Cirque shows as well. But I just recently saw Donny & Marie, and they’re my current favorite show. I absolutely love it. I’ve always been a fan of Donny and Marie. I thought the show would be kind of conservative, but it was totally exciting and contemporary. The production value was great—the lighting and the pacing. It’s so cool to see two stars who are powerful and entertaining in their own right perform together. It was fun to see their personalities by themselves, too. The fun Donny and Marie banter is always cute, from when they were little to now. Just as funny, the brother and sister thing. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
