On June 17, 2012, Chris Isaacson presented the 3rd year Season Finale of Upright Cabaret's American Icon Series with VIVA LAS VEGAS - a presentation of personality and pop that honors the flashiest performers of all time: Elvis Presley, Cher & Elton John!   

Dazzling multi-media set the stage as special Guest Host Jimmy James set the slinky mood with his impersonations of Vegas' biggest notables like Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt and even Cher.  Then,  larger-than-life voices scintillate #1 smash hits like Suspicious Minds, Jailhouse Rock, Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves, If I Could Turn Back Time, Benny & The Jets, Your Song and more! 

The cast was led by NBC's Smash star Leslie Odom, Jr (George Lucas' Red Tails, Leap of Faith, Rent) and Television star Patrick Cassidy with an all-star cast including Chad Doreck (iCarly, Grease: You're The One That I Want), Arielle Jacobs (In The Heights) and recording artist Karissa Noel. The show was Music Directed by Jamieson Trotter with the Upright Cabaret band!  

The series toured from Palm Spring's Annenberg Theater, La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts, Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza and ended its run at Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood.
