Nathan Burton will take his highly successful afternoon comedy magic show to the Saxe Theater in Planet Hollywood starting this Tuesday. It ends his four and a half year run with the Flamingo casino.
Nathan tells iTricks that he still has a great working relationship with Ceasar’s Entertainment (which owns The Flamingo) and that he will continue to produce Jeff Civillico’s show at Imperial Palace.
So why the sudden change? A television opportunity, at least in part.
This move comes in conjunction with signing a a major television project with Fremantle because of the freedom of being able to shoot at the Saxe Theater.
It’s also a bit of a homecoming. Burton initially left the Miracle Mile shops for the Flamingo opportunity. However, the now returns to a much bigger facility with a magic history. The Saxe Theater was the former home of Steve Wyrick and has since seen a revolving door of tenants.
This leaves a few questions remaining that we hope to get answers for, including: does the change in venue mean that Burton might attempt to shift to night shows? What is the television opportunity and when might it hit screens?
No matter what, Burton and his family are the hardest working magic show in Las Vegas. We wish them the best on the grand opening.
