Las Vegas Theaters Wait in the Wings
VenuesNow (07/02/20) Knapp, Rob
Large live performance venues in Las Vegas are still closed due to coronavirus concerns, and Caesars Entertainment is working with authorities and artists on when and how they will reopen. "We are planning for a selection of lower to midsize capacity shows to either operate at reduced capacity for the time being or be moved into larger venues to allow the show to proceed while complying with appropriate social distancing," said Caesars' Damian Costa. "This will serve as a solid bridge to the time when we can return operating shows at their prior seating configurations." Proper distance between attendees will be marked for admission to theaters. Egress after performances will be structured to avoid crowding, with temperature checks and mask requirements for employees and hand sanitizer stations throughout the facilities implemented as well. Guests will be encouraged to wear face coverings. MGM Resorts International is following the same approach as Caesars, with its Park Theater scheduled to open in mid-July, featuring residencies that include Lady Gaga, Aerosmith and Cher.
