Capture it while you can: The stunning ‘Baz’ covers this month at Palazzo

Image

Courtesy Venetian/Palazzo The final performance of “Baz” at the Palazzo Theatre is set for July 28.

I have actually seen the romantic, creative musical “Baz” two times throughout its Las Vegas run and had the very same reaction both times. About 15 minutes into the efficiency, all I could consider was that I had to come back and see it once again.

I might not get another shot. After a brief preliminary run in 2015 at Light Bar at Mandalay Bay and a far more strong two years of programs at the Palazzo Theatre, “Baz” ends at the end of this month. Created by Los Angeles-based live home entertainment business For The Record, the program artfully combines the music and characters from 3 films by Australian auteur Baz Luhrmann: “Romeo + Juliet,” “Moulin Rouge!” and “The Terrific Gatsby.” It moves quickly and feels familiar– clearly you do not have to see those movies to know the product– and has become an industry favorite thanks to a turning cast of truly talented vocalists, stars and dancers. We’re going to miss this one.

Musical theater on the Las Vegas Strip has actually constantly been a dicey proposition. There’s a long list of Broadway reveals that could not discover their footing in the tourist-dominated desert. With many magnificent, well-financed headliner and production programs leading today’s scene, it’s a particular rough roadway for an upstart relying on fresh skill, smart writing and terrific music, however “Baz” looked like an advancement. Perhaps it was. It’s certainly worth catching once again or for the very first time before the July 28 finale.

The core of the cast is three couples from the 3 films: Satine (Anne Martinez) and Christian (Danny McHugh) from “Moulin Rouge!”; Romeo (Paul Johnson) and Juliet (Jaclyn McSpadden); and Daisy (Allie Trimm) and Gatsby (Doug Carpenter). The powerful, commanding voice of Martinez was the only one still singing in the exact same function from the very first time I saw “Baz.” Just as crucial are the performances of the terrific Randal Keith (as Zidler, a sort of emcee-ringmaster character from “Moulin Rouge!” who crosses into each story) and the tremendous dancing duo of Sarah Le Clear and Alejandro Domingo. It may sound like there’s excessive going on in this show, but that’s not the experience; handfuls of great tunes topple into a structured story combining each couple’s struggle for love and happiness.

The very first emotional highpoint is when the Gatsby-Daisy love story is discussed, leading into the efficiency of Lana Del Rey’s tragic “Young and Beautiful.” That rollovers into an ever slower-burning ballad, the beautiful “I’m Kissing You,” initially sung by Des’ ree way back in 1996 for the “Romeo + Juliet” soundtrack. There are more excellent moments to come, like the tango to the Police’s “Roxanne” and Zidler’s rowdy rendition of Madonna’s “Like A Virgin,” all choreographed expertly by musical director Keith Paraska.

There’s still time. Do not be among those individuals who will just want they saw that one cool show on the Strip everyone was discussing.

” Baz” is presented at 8 p.m. Saturday through Tuesday and Thursday and at 9 p.m. Friday at the Palazzo Theatre (3325 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 702-607-7777). Saturday, July 28 is the final performance. Tickets and other details can be acquired at venetian.com.
