It’s been a long eight months, but you know what? This is Vegas and the show must go on. *Insert standing ovation and cheering here.*  Wondering what Las Vegas shows have come back?

Caesars Entertainment brings the return of live entertainment with production shows on the Las Vegas Strip. Following strict safety protocols, you can finally start adding shows back into your trip itinerary.

“Live entertainment is an important part of the Las Vegas experience that makes visiting this city so special, and we are thrilled that we can be first to offer it to our guests again,” said Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment.

See what shows, along with lounge acts, are up and running on the Strip:

It’s a show like no other. You have aerialists, dancers, comedy, burlesque – it’s everything you love about major production shows (with a bit of brash) all rolled into one.

ABSINTHE at Caesars Palace is not for the timid. This is unlike any production you’ve seen before. The raunchy and foul-mouthed Gazillionaire keeps things spicy throughout the night. The show is not for the sensitive crowd, either. This host will call you out, as we’ve witnessed at showings we’ve been to!

Show times are Wednesday – Sunday, 7 p.m and 9:30 p.m. inside the Roman Plaza. Prices start at $149.

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love hitting up all the city's vegan spots, having staycations and catching shows by my favorite musical acts. Since I've ditched rainy Seattle 20+ years ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas hotel and entertainment articles for, the LA Times, Frommer's and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me hanging with my two girls, along with our shih-tzu and tiger cat.
