An Evening At La Cage, At The Four Queens Hotel In Las Vegas

Here In Las Vegas, There Is A Show Called "An Evening At La Cage"
This picture above is of a female impersonator entertaining our troops in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Here in Las Vegas, there is a show called "An Evening At La Cage" that we went to, and there was also a "Lady Gaga" impersonator in the Vegas show.
Now if you've never been to a show featuring female impersonators (male entertainers dressed as women) it is really an interesting experience to say the least! They put on a VERY entertaining show, a combination of very impressive dancing and humor, as well as "lip-syncing" to songs by the original artists that are being impersonated.
This show that we saw takes place at the Four Queens Hotel, down on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Now there USED to be a show by the same name at the Riviera hotel on the strip, but that show after running for over 20 years, beginning in 1985, finally closed and stopped running two years ago (in 2009).
They took a hiatus for about two years, and opened the doors again in July of 2011, at a new hotel called The Four Queens Hotel, and with some new impersonators as well.
It was such a fascinating show, and I have to admit, I AM just a little bit jealous, some of these guys had much better legs than I do! They undergo a pretty amazing transformation from guys to "women" impersonators, and what makes their job even more difficult is attempting to LOOK just like "famous" singers, and impersonate their mannerisms and everything!
It is a little bit crazy, and just a very fun entertaining evening. There is a lot of humor, especially by the "Star" of the show, a man named Jimmy Emerson. Jimmy has appeared in shows all over the world as an entertainer, actor, singer and dancer, and especially a comedian.He even appeared in the famous London production of La Cage.
The show features over an hour of entertaining, non-stop music, dance, and comedy and will have you laughing and amazed by the showmanship of all of it's performers. There is a Michael Jackson impersonator that appears at the end of the show, who is a brilliant dancer, and has the mannerisms of Michael Jackson down, he puts on a wonderful performance.
An extremely talented cast!
All of the performers do a fantastic job, and they really do resemble the females that they are impersonating. There were "appearances" the night we went by Liza Minelli, Judy Garland, and hilarious impersonations of Wynonna Judd and Tammy "Spray-nette" done by Jimmy Emerson. All of these, and even appearances by Madonna, Bette Midler, Reba McEntire, and Lady Gaga, who could ask for more?
The show "An Evening At La Cage" features a fantastic cast consisting of Brent Allen, Ryan Zink, Andrew Ryan, Carlos Rodriguez, Alondro Garibay, and Lane Lassiter, who plays the part of Michael Jackson. And of course, Jimmy Emerson adds so much brilliance and humor, and brings the house down by playing some hilarious comedic roles as well. It is a show definitely worth seeing, and seems like it would be a fun show for a bachelorette party to attend as well.
Rounding out the show are two extremely talented dancers who add extra sparkle and glitz and glamour to a very memorable evening. They are simply amazing, and will totally thrill you with their addition to the show.
If you are looking for an evening filled with feathers, rhinestones, and beautiful head dresses, as well as hilarious portrayals of famous female singers and entertainers, this is definitely the show for you!
