Ring in the New Year with the silk-and-diamond decadence of The Great Gatsby as Baz Lurhmann's best films spring to life during this spectacular New Year's Eve party. Begin your stylish evening with a three-course dinner, followed by a performance of the popular show For the Record: Baz Luhrmann, featuring powerhouse performers from music, stage and screen reenacting iconic scenes and songs from Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom and The Great Gatsby. After the show, Rockwell will be transformed into a Gatsby-style 1920s' retreat. Listen to live music while enjoying the delicious buffet and glass of champagne included in the ticket price. If you'd prefer to skip the seated dinner and show and commence straight to partying the night away, the VIP Party Only option takes place in Rockwell's dazzling second-floor VIP salon decorated Gatsby style, where you can enjoy the buffet, a champagne toast, a balloon drop and live music.

orchestra good, sound BAD, seats close, too close. even though we were tier 3 L-X, we got GG.. which is 7th row. this wasn't that great since the orchestra and singers were OVERMIKED. you could hear a pin drop, pages turning, and breathing.. so when the music started, it blared.. and reverbed.. and was out of balance. the horns couldn't be heard over the strings. the vocals mixed with the rest sounded like a train wreak.
i tried to complain to the audio guys but they vanished at intermission so i complained to random staffers. they said it sounded ok in the back and i said, why are you charging people $85 for tickets in front? it sounded like amateur hour in a high school gym. if i paid full price, i'd throw my beer at the stage.
live performances are only as good as the artists, delivery system, and weakest link.. in the case, i have to rate the overall performance as disappointing given this failure. it should have been noticed and immediately corrected. not 8 songs in. i really wanted to give this 4-5 stars, given appearances by Uncharted and Blizzard composers.. but just can't. The other 5 star reviews either don't go out much or are kidding themselves.
