ENTERTAINMENT: Early Elvis stakes a claim

  Trent Carlini, the Elvis impersonator who claimed the top prize in ABC’s 2007 talent contest “The Next Best Thing,” is opening a new show called “Elvolution” in magician Steve Wyrick’s theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.
  The show opens March 9, marking Carlini’s return to the Strip for the first time since his Sahara revue abruptly closed last summer. He performs at 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, after Wyrick, and twice on Friday when Wyrick has the day off.
  The new location puts Carlini in direct competition with his last producer, V Theater operator David Saxe. The two parted on less than stellar terms. And, assuming Carlini hangs on until CityCenter opens, it puts him right across the street from Cirque du Soleil’s new, and still unnamed Elvis-themed production. Carlini has been a working Elvis since 1989 and moved to Las Vegas in 1991 to work in "Legends in Concert."
