Clowes Hall

I’m no fan of Jerry Springer—who hosts both the TV show and the tour—but I am a fan of the variety-show format. That largely bygone arrangement allowed for a wide range of performers to appear, exposing audiences to forms of entertainment that they perhaps hadn’t even considered enjoying.

The “America’s Got Talent” program coming to Clowes includes opera and pop singing, ballroom dancing, stunt-bike riding and more. A likely highlight: the black-light illusions of Fighting Gravity—one of those acts that Vegas builds whole theaters around. Details here.
