Frank Marino’s new show “Red Carpet Brunch,” at the Westgate Las Vegas is a great way to spend part of your day on the weekends.
Long-time female impersonator, Frank Marino, and his troupe of impersonators opened his new drag show and this is sure to be a hit. In the hotel, it has taken over the Mexican restaurant that closed a few years back on the ground floor. Newly decorated and with a stage, the room can hold a little over a hundred and is perfect for this type of show.
The room is now the Frank Marino Theater, with music, feathers, glamour and the star power of Frank, the performers get up close and personal as they come off the stage and mingle with the audience.
I have seen Frank Marino’s shows for over 30 years, and he never fails to entertain. The closeness of this supper club-style theater, with the performers just feet away, gives you a feeling of being right up on stage with them. Frank has performed in Las Vegas longer than anyone else in the whole city.
The menu is varied with at least 14 items, I myself chose the Monte Carlo with fries and it was more than I could eat.
In between each impersonator’s performance—Liza Minnelli, Cher, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Taylor Swift, Tina Turner, and many more—Marino appears in another of his probably thousand costumes, engaging in some hilarious banter with his audience. Shows are on Saturday and Sunday both 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and last 2 1/2 hours on April 24, 30th and May 1.
By the time you read this, Frank will be touring, but will return later in the summer, so be sure to check back if you are coming to Las Vegas. Show packages range from $49.99 to a $99.99 VIP package, which includes bottomless mimosas. There is a free meet and greet and photo op available after the show with ALL the performers.
As we all know, Frank also has his Divas Legends in Concert nightly, except Tuesday, at the Tropicana at 7:30.
A big thanks goes out to Frank Marino & his Divas, Alan and Kathi Glist, Gordon Prouty, and Leah Koza who is always there to support Frank. The Glists also produce Bronx Wanderers at the Westgate and Menopause the Musical at Harrah’s.
