It's in the FAQ, but it's not like they make a big point of it: https://www.neonmuseum.org/about/f-a-q

I went a couple of years ago.  Enjoyed it and would have gone back.....but they won't let you take pictures anymore with a camera.  They changed their policy in 2019.  Only pictures with a cellphone.   I'm

  Maybe if this is successful, more shows maybe  open by February.  I really want to visit in 2021.  Since shows are a big part of my visit, I won't return until there are more options.  During my visit, I usually do two nature excursions which are all day trips.   One of my destinations is currently closed due to Covid.  So I have to consider that also.

I also read that they were relocating some of the smaller shows into bigger showrooms within their hotels, so that it would help with social distancing.



Handful Of Vegas Shows Reopening  Oct 22 2020, 07:39:29 AM

When I did my general periodic search, last night, there was an article stating which ones.  Off the top of my head was Absinthe, David Copperfield, X Country, CarrotTop, Jabbawockeez, Australian stripper show Thunder From Down Under, Australian Bee Gees, strip show Fantasy and Brad Garrett Comedy Room.  It's a start.



Your First Broadway Musical Recording  Oct 21 2020, 10:42:20 PM

The first I purchased was A Chorus Line OBC on vinyl. It was my first show, although it was a tour production.   (It would be years later when I saw my second show)   However, my parents or Grandmother (can't remember) already had in the house, Fiddler On The Roof OBC on vinyl.

I periodically check about Las Vegas shows reopening and to my surprise a handful of shows are reopening, starting the end of this month.  They are reducing the number of tickets sold and distancing from the stage.   Based on the Vegas4Locals ebay website, I think a few smaller shows have already opened (comedy shows).  I hope this continues safely.  I had to cancel a trip this year and really want to return in 2021.



Takarazuka ANASTASIA with new Dmitry song 'She Walks In'  Oct 20 2020, 11:00:51 PM

At this point...I would love to see ANY live production.  I had tickets to the cancelled tour this year.  I  prepurchased the cast cd as a "souvenir"  for the show as I do every show I attend.  Yet....no show.  Hoping down the road, a tour will be announced.  Maybe 2021 or 2022?



2020 Tony Nominations Thread  Oct 15 2020, 04:00:01 PM

How long will it take before someone starts a thread, "Who do you think will win the 2020 Tony for Best Actor In A Musical?"  I, for one, enjoyed him in Moulin Rouge, as well as in Next To Normal and Catch Me If You Can.  Really talented and when I met him, extremely nice.

Nealb1, You could get a really good  40 "flat screen tv for under $200.  Just look out for the sales.  However, what you may find is that your dvd player is not compatible  with the new tv.  My dvd player would work but only show movies in black and white.  So I had to purchase two blu ray players, that play dvds.  It was a Sony and reasonably priced.  I also know nothing about installing and connecting.  That is what" know it all br

Thanks for the info.  I had read some years back that Harold and Michael possibly had a past relationship, which ended when Michael cheated on him.  When Harold says "in affairs of the heart, there are no rules", then looks over at Michael, that could support this theory.  Maybe there is animosity, because Harold thinks Donald and Michael are in a relationship of some kind.  Again, I don't find Harold to be hostile, but will stand his ground when provoke

You could say the same thing about a flight: last year the exact same

They have increased the points again, second time in less than a month.  A magnet that was 900 points in August is now 1700 points.  I sure would like to know why they keep raising the point value.  I should have redeemed for the magnet in August.
