When you’re in Las Vegas, it’s a must to head downtown and catch a play at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. The state-of-the-art performing arts center hosts a Broadway Las Vegas series where during the 2013 season, guests can see shows such as Billy Elliot the Musical (during a limited run in May) and Catch Me If You Can (during a limited run in June). And also in June, Green Day’s American Idiot will run for six days as a season special. Although I’ve had seats in the box tier as well as the orchestra, I encourage people to purchase tickets in the gold circle section of the orchestra — it gives you a great view and makes you feel like you’re a part of the entire experience. But before the show begins, don’t forget to stop by one of the bars to snag a souvenir Smith Center sippy cup filled with a beverage of your choice — I always order the white wine!
