Whether just discovering each other or celebrating years of love; enjoying a show, either in an intimate setting or large showroom, adds to the magic of Valentine’s Day. Performances in Las Vegas offers a chance to sing along with a celebrity couple, look into each other’s eyes serenaded by a crooner or rock out to a timeless story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. Las Vegas’ shows offer romance and comedy about couples for all tastes in entertainment for one of the most romantic days of the year.

“Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” is an interactive show with audience participation that includes a ceremony and reception with dinner, dancing and even a wedding cake. A satire of an Italian-American celebration, characters at the “wedding” sit at the tables to complain, cajole and even dance with audience members. For a chance to reminisce about similar weddings attended in real life, laugh at the absurdity of bridezillas or assure each other that any upcoming ceremony will not include the fights and drama; “Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” brings humor to Valentine’s Day.

The play “Defending the Caveman” humorously explores the way men and women view the world through the eyes of one man. Using wit and comedy, the character explains his observations on how men and women relate to the masculine ego, feminine independence and sex. As the longest running play featuring a solo character on Broadway, “Defending the Caveman” continues a successful run as well on the Las Vegas Strip.

Rock of Ages

It is 1987 again in “Rock of Ages,” the story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl and boy gets girl back set to the soundtrack of the biggest hits of the 1980s. Taking place on Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, characters from all parts of the country (and world) come to follow their dreams and maybe find fame and fortune. Surrounded by big hair, cutting guitar riffs and huge egos, the characters rock out while falling in love. Whether this is the first time experiencing the 1980s or a walk down memory lane, “Rock of Ages” is ultimately a love story in a different time and place.
