Still searching for a great gift or outing idea? Gen’s
Delights got you covered:
New York – Hollywood
These two cities definitely evoke vivid imagery of talent,
creativity and extravagance. When Hollywood produces a musical comedy, New York
adapts it for the stage. When New York gives us a musical show, Hollywood
releases a movie.
Treat mom to a night of star treatment at the Cabaret du
Casino with the latest Musical Revue: New
York – Hollywood.
With 14 spectacular acts featuring singers (Nancy
Fortin, Martin Lacasse, Yanick Lanthier & Marianne Mathieu), five live
musicians and numerous talented and very sensual dancers on the stage,
the New-York – Hollywood show will amaze mom with its show
stopping numbers and memorable show tunes taken from beloved musicals and films
such as Ghost, Sister Act, The
Bodyguard, Mamma Mia!, Motown, and many more!
Expect a room full of energy as audience members eagerly stand up and dance to the catchy medley from The Buddy Holly Story, or stare in wonder at the aerial exploits of the dancers in Unchained Melody.
Just add a delicious 3 courses dinner package to your show and you will have mom singing right along to Nancy Fortin’s powerful rendition of Whitney’s iconic song “I Will Always Love You” .
You bet she will definitely love you too!
