Sin City Opera teams up with Off-Strip Productions to perform two one-act operas at the Onyx Theatre. The two operas are thematically related, each having plots that center around telephones, and the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Gian Carlo Menotti's comic The Telephone presents an exasperating situation that is especially resonant now that we all have mobile phones. Poor Ben has a very important question for Lucy, but his attempts to ask it are constantly interrupted by telephone calls. The dramatic tour de force The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine) by Francis Poulenc (performed in a new English translation) is a musical adaptation of Jean Cocteau's dramatic monologue of the same name.

Every seat is a good one!!! the quaint venue is nestled within the pagoda strip in Asia town, like a hidden gem (even though they've been around for many years). Play contents have adult themes and some strong language but all in good fun. We unfortunately had a couple in the audience who talked the entire time, so we were constantly distracted, but the performance was solid. Some great slapstick and laugh out loud moments. The cast handled a set malfunction with great finesse and quick wit. True professionals. It was also nice to see a good turnout on a weekday. Makes me proud of my community. Go see it.
“Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive!" — Sir Walter Scott
Mix in singing and dancing with this deception, and you’ve got the summer musical at Las Vegas Little Theatre…..Dirty Rotten Scoundrels!
Based on the popular 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is the suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson, who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. The other, a small-time crook named Freddy Benson, more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health.
After meeting on a train, they unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues, that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
Starring as the two competitive con men are Brian Scott as “Lawrence” and Mario Mendez as “Freddy," and Penni Mendez sparkling as “Christine”, the object of this roller coaster of conniving! Other featured roles include Tony Blosser as “Andre”; Kim Glover as “Muriel”; and, Denda Brink as “Jolene”. Direction of this hilarious romp is Walter Niejadlik, with Musical Direction by Toby McEvoy, and Choreography by Sarah Spraker.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels_, with music and lyrics by David Yazbek and a book by Jeffrey Lane, will be presented live on stage in the air conditioned comfort of the Main Stage at Las Vegas Little Theatre
