When asked if she ever talked to school officials about the bullying, Hudson stated, “I just spoke to the school’s Sixth grade principal. I didn’t know the best ways to handle it.

From ‘Baz’ to ‘Renegades,’ Vegas stage veteran Eric Jordan Young never presses pause

Eric Jordan Young embraced a brand-new mantra for 2018, and it’s working rather well: No tasks.

“Often when we do a great deal of work and hectic ourselves, we can start to think about whatever as an obligation,” discusses the Broadway veteran who has actually recently carried out in Las Vegas productions Rock of Ages, Shakin’ and Vegas! The Program. “However I love exactly what I do and I love being associated with a lot of various jobs at the very same time, so the idea is no chores this year, all excellent stuff.”

Young is doing so much great stuff on the Strip today, it is difficult to find out how he fits everything in. He’s the resident director of Baz: A Musical Mash-up, which plays Tuesday through Sunday at the Palazzo Theatre. “I oversee the imaginative aspects of the show, anything that deals with performance and casting and staging and structure and outfits and lighting and sound design,” he states. “I’m the eyes and ears on the imaginative level for the production group, and I use support and guidance to the entertainers and provide to the chance to feel safe onstage.”

Seems like a full-time gig. Except that he’s also one of 4 stars of the fun, new Wednesday-through-Saturday 5 p.m. show The Cocktail Cabaret at Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace. It’s a powerhouse, throwback musical extravaganza produced by author Keith Thompson and piano phenom Philip Fortenberry. Young is the singing-dancing host of the show, anchoring the efficiencies of standout vocalists Niki Scalera, Daniel Emmet and Maren Wade.

“Cleopatra’s Barge is one of those well-known spaces any performer would be enjoyed carry out in if only for one night,” he states. “Many incredible individuals have remained in that space, from the Rat Load to Harry Belafonte. It’s such an iconic location– to be on that phase is truly cool.”

So cool, in reality, that Young’s 3rd present show, the unorthodox Renegades, plays there, too, Thursdays through Sundays at 8 p.m. Young is writer and imaginative director for the interactive sports-focused program, which features storytelling and discussion with infamous professional athletes including Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon and Terrell Owens.

“I’m a writer, so that was the main focus of the best ways to make this work,” Young states. “It’s a matter of how to shape those stories and make them appropriate to everybody, regardless if they’re a sports fan or if they comprehend these professional athletes’ history. And Renegades definitely has some stories you have not heard.”

Dealing with big names is a breeze for someone who collaborated with lots of superstars during the first national company trip of Chicago, when Young teamed with Brooke Shields, George Hamilton, Lou Gossett Jr., Melanie Griffith and much more.

Somehow, Young also discovers time to carry out in Breakfast to Broadway Sundays at Red Rock Resort, a program broadening to Santa Fe Station, too. “It feels like someone is looking out for me, the way that everything has lined up,” he says. “My day can be truly quite amazing, however I simply enjoy exactly what I do. I love to see the changes and impact, and I enjoy to pull stuff from people and make them feel they can do much better.”

Simply talking with Young can do that, or at least make you feel you can do more.
