If you've tried it all – from grapefruit diets to water calisthenics – then come try WAISTWATCHERS, the hilarious and heart-warming musical that celebrates our love/hate obsession with weight. Enter a group meeting where the scale, measurements, fats and carbs make us laugh ourselves silly and lose a few calories in the process. Enjoy songs like "Measure for Measure," "Refrigerator Tango" and "Scales of Injustice." By the show’s end you’ll see that laughter can help you tackle any challenge – such as passing up pie or joining a gym – especially when you have the right musical inspiration!

THE RAT PACK – Live at the Sands is the hottest and coolest party in town. Following four unprecedented years on London's West End, this acclaimed production vividly recreates a legendary evening at the Sands Hotel with the most famous performers of our time: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin. It’s Las Vegas, it’s the Sands Hotel, the big band is swingin’, and those gorgeous Burelli Sisters are singin’, and of course the three wisecracking hip-cats bring their inimitable magic to the finest music ever recorded: "I’ve Got You Under My Skin;" "That’s Amore;" "Mr. Bojangles;" "The Lady Is A Tramp." You won’t find anything like it anywhere else. It’s the RAT PACK – and it’s live! Ring-a-ding-ding!
