Marlene Ricci has been signed to appear indefinitely in the newly remodeled Le Bistro Theatre at the Riviera Hotel. A protege of the late Frank Sinatra, Marlene was discovered by the legendary crooner while working in a casino lounge here in Las Vegas. He made her his opening act and she performed all over the world with "The Chairman of the Board". When Frank wasn't singing, Marlene opened for all his pals including Paul Anka, Sammy Davis Jr., Bob Hope, Alan King and many, many more. Her numerous television appearances with Merv Griffin, Johnny Carson, Dinah Shore and Mike Douglas have made her a favorite with locals and tourists alike. Marlene's musical director is the extremely talented Brian Tidwell and I think this show will be a fresh addition to the Riviera's great entertainment line-up. Break-a-leg and we'll see you soon after your opening on Jan. 29. Call the Riviera box office for tickets and information at (702) 794-9433.

Then at 8 pm, Chris Nelson, Mike Cavanaugh, Phyllis Griffin, Ray Glover, Conrad Hawthorne, John Jones, and others rock out at the dual Dueling Pianos. It is the most interactive, fun Rock 'n' Roll show where the audience can sing and dance and go wild seven nights a week! The hours have been extended here too, and the show goes until 3 am on weekdays and 4 am on Friday and Saturday!
