Top Las Vegas Shows - Crazy GirlsThe city of Las Vegas definitely has no shortage of adult-themed entertainment shows for the visitor feeling a little on the naughty side. One of the most talked about these days is the Crazy Girls show at the Riviera Hotel & Casino. Almost every review of the show reads the same: Crazy Girls pushes the limits of even a show in Las Vegas.

When guests are filing into the medium-sized auditorium at the Riviera, there’s really nothing that stands out as unusual. The stage setting is fairly basic, the room is unassuming and most are totally unaware of the spectacle they’re about to behold. Crazy Girls is the kind of show that sneaks up on you and bites – but in a good way.

To properly gauge the type of show Crazy Girls is, one must first be honest with his or her self: if you’re going into a topless show, then you’re going because you want to see the topless girls. Vegas stage shows don’t offer the “I read Playboy for the articles” excuse. There’s no art involved with the typical high-kicking showgirl; it’s about nudity.

Charo Brings The House Down At The Riviera Las Vegas With A Musical SensationKnown primarily as the "cuchi-cuchi" girl, Charo is the one-name musical phenom who has wowed world audiences for decades. Before Las Vegas became so readily known for hundreds of various entertainment shows on The Strip, Charo was certainly one of the city’s most-loved performers – and she’s back with a brand new show.

In her new show, Charo: A Musical Sensation, the fast-talking and fast-playing entertainer gives a flashback performance, of sorts, taking fans back to the Spanish music of yesteryear. Charo’s new show is taking place at the Riviera Hotel & Casino, the same location she played throughout the 1980s.

Although Charo is easily considered to be one of the best guitar players on the planet, and undoubtedly the best flamenco-style musician around, she’s also equally adored for her bubbly personality and undeniable comedic prowess. During this show, Charo treats fans to the best of both worlds, integrating comedy with her music.

Top Vegas Shows - The Sopranos' Last Supper

Top Vegas Shows - The Sopranos' Last SupperThe mafia is a big hit around the world, no pun intended. And perhaps no mafia rendition in history drew the fanfare that HBO’s The Sopranos did. Beginning in 1999, the Soprano family drama followed the life of north Jersey crime boss Tony Soprano and his many problems with his own emotions, family (both families) and law enforcement.

The show ran for eight successful years, and after the disappointing 2007 series finale, talks of a spinoff show or even a big-budget movie were in the works. However, nothing ever panned out, and the original cast hasn’t been back. This didn’t stop Las Vegas from picking up on the theme, though, with their version of the hit show, The Soprano’s Last Supper.

The Soprano’s Last Supper is currently playing at the Riviera Hotel and Casino, but this is the show’s third home. While the real show was still fresh on everyone’s mind, the Vegas spoof version wasn’t doing nearly as well.
