Notable Men With Lacquered Hair

The atmosphere must have been electric. Such iconic American figures, standing in the same room, breathing the same air—but hey, let’s forget the meeting of Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon for a moment. Million Dollar Quartet, the hit Broadway show based on Elvis’ other notable confab, comes to The Smith Center on June 12-17 ($24-$129). It should be fun to watch actors rip through classics such as “Hound Dog” and “Folsom Prison Blues” as they re-create the monumental 1956 recording session of Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis. But the Elvis/Nixon thing would’ve been sexier.

Cirque de Street Clothes

Imagine Cirque du Soleil stripped down to its core, void of elaborate costumes, multimillion-dollar stages and special effects. Then take its acrobatic elements and set them to contemporary music such as hip-hop and dubstep. Bundle this up with a storyline that explores mental illness. This is PSY: Mind-Blowing Circus by Montreal-based theatrical group Les 7 Doigts de la Main (the seven fingers of the hand). The 10-year-old troupe made its Las Vegas debut on May 15-16 at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
