The Saxe Theater will be the new name for the 435-seat Las Vegas performance theater venue in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. The theater was formerly operated by magician Steve Wyrick, who surrendered it to the mall in a December foreclosure.
Producer David Saxe will manage this new venue and his current V Theater, also located in the Miracle Mile Shops area. The V runs as many as 17 performances of 10 titles per day.
The new Saxe Theater is planned to be up and running by June 1.
Though the production theme is being worked out, one of the ideas proposed is a show that that documents the history of Las Vegas entertainment industry.
Magician Steve Wyrick has been a solid mainstay in Las Vegas since 2007, performing in a $35 million showroom located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood. He has disappeared nightly; but, this time the vanishing magic act is apparently a indefinitely canceled show. The performer failed to appear for last night’s show and, apparently, the show is no more.
Wyrick shaped his reputation performing supposed dangerous stunts, but blew his magic cover when a July 4th vanishing act went awry after stage curtains around his “Death Drop” stunt burst into flames and a crew member was injured.
Speculation about his Las Vegas reappearance has not materialized, yet.
