The Tropicana still hasn’t announced what will go into its big showroom after “Folies Bergere,” and the lack of news suggests something went amiss in the 60 days it took to give the “Folies” cast proper notice to wind down the revue.
However, the larger casino is quickly becoming more like the Riviera, hosting a lot of little shows. After signing comedian Bobby Slayton to take over the former Comedy Stop club, hotel officials are remodeling another space — likely the area that once hosted a Las Vegas history museum — to host two more titles.
The interactive, partly improvised “The Soprano’s Last Supper” will move over from the Greek Isles while “Hypnosis Unleashed” will move from the Harmon Theater, both by the end of the month. No specific dates were given for the openings, but hypnotists Michael Johns and Terry Stokes wrap at the Harmon on April 24. “Soprano’s” will be at the Greek Isles for at least another week.
Both shows have made the rounds. “Soprano’s” started at the Harmon before moving to the Empire Ballroom and Riviera. The hypnotists have played the Stardust and House of Blues at Mandalay Bay.
