It was the King at his most charismatic, and only a small group of fans had the privilege of being there... until now. With actor Casey Ryan as Elvis, the musical tribute show Elvis '68 relives a historic moment in music history, leather suit and all. This stage re-creation of the crooner's 1968 live comeback special explores a pivotal moment in the life and career of Elvis Presley. At the time, Elvis hadn't played a live show in seven years and his popularity was fading. But what was meant to be a safe Christmas concert turned into an intimate jam session, as Elvis and friends intercut rock 'n' roll hits with storytelling and audience interaction. Learn More

By popular demand The Maverick is bringing back for the third time The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (ABRIDGED). Theater-goers will once again enjoy a tumultuous rollercoaster tribute to the immortal bard, Shakespeare. As three actors take on the overwhelming task of performing 37 plays and 154 sonnets in under two hours, illuminating the world of Shakespeare through a unique blend of madcap humor that includes everything from puns and pratfalls to elaborate sight gags of football, swordplay and hip-hop music. Irreverent and hilarious, this comedy sensation keeps delighting audiences and critics.
The entire show is staged in front of a two story tall William Shakespeare head. Performed on the Maverick’s Cabaret Stage; audiences will find themselves knee deep in all the action.
