‘iLuminate™ Presents: Happy Hour’ – New Las Vegas Production Show debuts this Spring
LAS VEGAS (Jan. 13, 2020) – Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino brings a new show to the Sin City Theater beginning March 26, 2020. Audiences of all ages can ‘get lit’ with an all-new experience from the performance group, iLuminate™ (pronounced “i” “luminate”). ‘iLuminate™ Presents: Happy Hour’ blends music, dance, comedy, technology and art from the group that held a finalist spot on America’s Got Talent in 2011. The audience is invited to come have a laugh and those “of age” can enjoy a shot…or two…or four with the cast that was named “Best New Act in America” by America’s Got Talent. The show’s 6 p.m. timeslot makes Happy Hour the ultimate Vegas pre-game! Featuring some of the city’s best comedic hosts, ‘iLuminate™ Presents: Happy Hour’ will take the audience on an incredible journey through several styles of dance and music while interacting with the audience in this immersive experience! iLuminate™ combines state-of- the-art technology with electrifying entertainers who perform in the dark to create the ultimate performing arts experience. Founded by dancer and software engineer Miral Kotb, iLuminate™ allows explosive performances utilizing customized wireless lighting programs. The results are extraordinary lighting effects choreographed with phenomenal dance moves that take viewers on an exhilarating ride. “As we have been putting together the Vegas show, we were inspired by the intimacy of the Sin City Theater and thought ‘this crowd will arrive as strangers, but leave as best of friends!’ and that is really the idea of taking the show to this level – it’s a happy hour timeslot so come hang out, have some drinks and meet some new friends all while being entertained in a whole new dimension,” said Kotb. “As a production, iLuminate has found a great balance in pairing world-class live performers with innovative technologies,” said Damian Costa, Caesars Entertainment vice president of entertainment operations. “We look forward to having this show add to the overall entertainment experience for guests at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.” The show’s dynamic creative team includes co-director West Hyler whose prior works include Cirque du Soleil's Paramour and Jersey Boys, as well as Kevin Teasley as musical director who has previously worked with Jennifer Lopez and Usher.
