Las Vegas is always reinventing itself and this includes the entertainment industry. It appears the new trend is to have casino shows without the casino. A California producer seems to be first in bringing a quality show to a non casino location. This week’s Reader Poll asks the question . . . when you go to a show in Las Vegas does it matter to you if it is performed in a casino or held in an appropriate venue not located within a casino? What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

Reader Poll Replies:

My opinion is that quality entertainment can be located anywhere and I will visti that location.  It does not have to be in a casino.  Some of the best music I have ever heard came from a non casino location.  Jerry O.  Tulsa OK

For my money I go where the entertainment is playing not the building they are playing in.  Irene  Charleston WV

I like seeing entertainment in the casino I am staying in.  It is easier than getting a cab and going to another location.  Walt Givens

 The venue isn't what I go to see, the show is. I want great entertainment for my dollar no matter where it is located.   Renee McConville  Branson , MO.

I love the Vegas shows, whether they are performed in a casino or held in another venue doesn't matter to me. Micheline   Brussels Belgium

I like the convience of "everything in one place"...No doubt about it.. Saves on taxi fees, etc... Of course if it is someone that I especially want to see I would high tail it to see them no matter where they were at.... Peggy Barger  New Smyrna Beach, Florida

I prefer a show to be located within a casino. If it is at the hotel I am staying, really convenient! If another hotel, a short taxi ride and a visit to a new casino and a chance to try new dining venues. Jack Callahan  La Canada/ca.

For me personally, a good show that interests me would not have to be in a casino. A really good show at a reasonable price by an entertainer that I like would be the draw, Provided the location is not far from the strip, since that is where we normally like to stay & spend most of our time.  Eddie Schulz   Urbana,OH

We like the shows at a Casino so we can play the slots their before the show and after the show.  gary smith  south bend, IN

We go to see the shows. Not to see where its at. As long as its a good show, we will go and see it.  Steve  Sedalia,Mo

Will attend appropriate venue. Show and performers should match the level of ticket holders. Adult shows in casinos, family shows in hotels.  Richard C Doyle  Las Vegas

i know people will more than likly say inside a casino. why? cause its always been that way,staying inside a casino is what people do. shows inside the casino are convevient, some get comps to attend, you don't have to travel (which of course depends on who is playing at that casino your staying at.)and thats the point. no travel. no cab fair ect.
i don't feel this would work. (outside casino shows).  Ralph   Hamden,CT

When attending a show, having it take place in a casino is not my single most important issue. My first concerns are always transportation convenience and after show options. However, these issues are all very closely related, for a show in a casino has the advantages of a restaurant, lounge, gaming, cab availability and public bus service. For
me, any location within a short walk of these items would be just as attractive. The casino issue aside, Location, Location, Location... Bryan Miller  Boyne City, MI

I much prefer attending shows that are within a casino. In most cases attnding a particular show is only part of an evenings planned activ-ity. Usually dinner and gaming are included. Thus when a show is at a casino venue, unnecessary travel time is avoided and it is easier to transition between activities. If a casino has a good show, good food, and reasonable payouts it will be very likely to draw my business.  Arno Haecker  San Antonio, Texas
