WOW - WORLD OF WONDER Postpones First Performance at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
"WOW - World of Wonder," the internationally-acclaimed production, will now make its North American debut with a splash at the Rio Showroom at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas October 3, 2017 vs. its original first performance date of September 26, 2017, due to slight construction delays.
"Creating a production of the magnitude of 'WOW' from the ground up has been an exciting but also technically demanding process," says Hanoch Rosènn, creator and producer. "There are so many wonderful elements to our show - from video, to staging and the state-of-the art holograms and special effects. Due to construction delays, we felt it was best to postpone our first performance by one week to ensure the true 'WOW' water experience for our audiences."
"WOW" is a water entertainment spectacular that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. The cast of more than 30 international performing artists, acrobats and dancers fly, flip, fold, dance and defy the imagination in a 180 degree theatrical setting that engages the audience from beginning to end with 3D multi-media projections, water walls, and holograms. Add breathtaking acrobatics, dazzling choreography, thrilling theatrical lighting, magnificent music and even finalists from America's Got Talent, and you are sure to be wowed!
Created and directed by famed director Hanoch Rosènn, "WOW," the long-running circus-style show features delights, dangers and water. Rosènn is known worldwide for his extravagant and large-scale productions - including "Festigal" where he directed Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot in her stage-acting debut in 2008. Rosènn created "WOW" as a fast-paced, stunning spectacular which, to date, has been seen by more than 2.5 million people.
In preparation for its North American premiere, the Rio Showroom at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is being transformed into a world of water including a custom-built stage and pool that promises an up-close and interactive audience experience. Though grand in scale, design and production, the family-friendly show will provide Las Vegas audiences with an intimate theatrical water show adventure unlike any other.
Among the many dynamic performers during the 90-minute show who will be a part of the "WOW" cast include America's Got Talent semi-finalist, Sylvia Sylvia - whose jaw-dropping archery act of shooting an apple off of her own head left judges and audiences spellbound. In addition the international cast features some of the greatest acrobats and specialty acts from the USA, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Ukraine, France, the UK and more.
The water spectacular "WOW" will play at the Rio Showroom at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Tuesday through Sunday at 7:00 p.m with additional shows at 9:00 pm Friday through Sunday. Tickets are currently on sale and range from $49 - $169 + taxes and fees and can be purchased at the Rio Box Office, Ticketmaster, RioLasVegas.com or by calling 702-777-7776.
