It’s a hassle getting to the Strip to see a show. Add the tourist traffic and about 30 extra minutes crawling along the hotel corridor and it’s almost not worth the effort.
That’s one of the reasons why I like Starbright Theatre. It’s easy to get to, the shows change all the time, and you get value for your dollar. OK, so it’s not Cirque de Soleil, but sometimes I don’t want to be reminded that I need to get to the gym and work off those chocolate chip cookies I inhaled last night.
I am looking forward to seeing Sharon McNight bring to life the ladies of yesteryear like Bette Davis, Ethel Merman, Betty Hutton (McNight is shown as her rigth) — all those people you see on the black and white movies when insomnia strikes hard. Where’s my darn coffee cup?
McNight is slated to bring her special brand of comedy to Summerlin with "Gone, But Not Forgotten," 7 p.m. on Feb. 14 at the Starbright Theatre, 2215 Thomas Ryan Blvd. Tickets for "Gone, But Not Forgotten" are $18 for Sun City Summerlin residents and $23 for nonresidents. For ticket information, call 240-1301. Find out more in the Feb. 10 Summerlin View.
