“Piano Man: Tribute to Elton John and Billy Joel,” REVIEW-Mosaic Theater”
By Sandy Zimmerman-Entertainment and Features Writer
“Piano Man” stands as a special moment in Las Vegas, bringing back the “look”, the “feel” and the PIZAZZ of the production shows of the past! Everything is professional from the star, Kyle Martin’s outstanding over-the-top performance, to the stage setting, dynamite lighting, dancers, and the band.
I enjoyed the surprise of seeing the specially timed sequences of flashing colored lights suddenly bursting forth, appearing to present each dancer, musician, and act as the lights jumped from one section of the stage to the other until the pace quickened and everything was happening at once!
With all of this, Martin led the way singing, playing his piano and other instruments, as he brought the audience to a standing ovation.
There was so much to see, you have to keep watching or miss something! The real action begins with a crescendo of flashing lights suddenly appearing across the stage.
With the name “Piano Man”, this show does not just feature Martin playing the piano and singing but is much more, similar to a big budget production. Blocking all of the action on the large set must have been a big project, timing Martin along with others, dancers, special flashing videos, and everything else perfectly synchronized for maximum effects!
Known throughout the years from back in Las Vegas’ “golden era”, Maestro Johnny Stuart, Producer/Director/Creator of World Famous “Legends in Concert” as well as many other live shows appearing now in Las Vegas. Stuart’s multiple choices of the shows he produces are varied in themes.
Not satisfied with only one show at a time, Stuart’s major production companies focus on multiple productions. Stuart is a man who has a lot to say with his shows, and he has the ability to design some of the most dazzling new shows reminiscent of earlier times.
He has several new shows here now and more will also be coming to Las Vegas! These are DON’T MISS shows that stand-out from all the rest. Stuart is one of the few persons who can run the gamut from concept to creation of a new show.
When the show is a Johnny Stuart production, YOU KNOW IT IS GOOD!
Currently, Johnny is featuring several shows:
LEGENDS IN CONCERT
BLUES BROTHERS REVIVAL
OVATION THE SHOW
DICK CLARK’S AMERICAN BANDSTAND LIVE
RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT
