“Danny Gans to Star in the New Encore Theater in 2009”
Las Vegas, NV (PR NEWSWIRE-FIRST CALL) April 17, 2008 – Gans will return to the Wynn family in February, 2009, when he brings his unique one-man show to the new Encore resort at Wynn Las Vegas. Wynn Resorts Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn commented: “Danny Gans’ continuing role as the star of the Encore Theater underscores the individual identity of our new resort and underscores our continuing, unqualified commitment to excellence in service and entertainment. I built the Danny Gans Theater at the Mirage in 2000 as a result of being convinced that he would bring to our family a standard of performing artistry unequalled by any other single star in Las Vegas. The result has been obvious, and he has occupied that singular position ever since. On a very personal as well as professional level, I am absolutely delighted to welcome him back into our newer family across the street. We are going to have a great time together – just like the audience.”
Singer, comedian, impressionist and actor, Gans has been named Las Vegas’ “Entertainer of the Year” for 11 straight years in a row. Known as “The Man of Many Voices,” he was hailed by People Magazine for reviving “the age of impressionism in Las Vegas.” Gans has been selling out his shows for almost 12 years in Las Vegas, and has spent the last eight years performing at the Mirage in a theater built for him by Steve Wynn.
