The Broadway-style comedy PAWN SHOP LIVE!, a comedic nod to the story behind HISTORY’s reality smash hit “Pawn Stars,” is set to open at the historic Riviera Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip on Monday, April 21, 2014 (Pictured: The Old Man and Rick Harrison visit the cast of Pawn Shop Live!).
PAWN SHOP LIVE! is based on the story of the world’s most famous and beloved pawn shop, Gold & Silver Pawn. The production, which has been fully endorsed by the break-out stars of the hit television show, includes story contributions from Rick Harrison and the Harrison family. PAWN SHOP LIVE! will run nightly at 4:30 p.m. inside the Starlite Theatre.
“We’re excited to welcome PAWN SHOP LIVE!, the Pawn Stars and their devoted fans to Riviera Hotel & Casino,” said Alex Rangel, Riviera Hotel & Casino’s Vice President of Marketing and Entertainment. “The show will make a fantastic addition to our already-diverse entertainment lineup and we look forward to seeing the Pawn Stars on property at Riviera Hotel & Casino.”
“Producing a show on the Las Vegas Strip has always been a dream of mine and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to bring PAWN SHOP LIVE! to the iconic Riviera Hotel & Casino,” said PAWN SHOP LIVE! Producer Derek Stonebarger. “Positioned so close to the famous Gold & Silver Pawn, there’s no doubt Riviera Hotel & Casino is a perfect location for PAWN SHOP LIVE!”
Produced by Emmy award-winning producer Derek Stonebarger and co-written and directed by Troy Heard, PAWN SHOP LIVE! features seven live actors and dancers, as well as a puppet, celebrity guests and surprises, as even the real “Pawn Stars” will appear on stage as often as their filming schedule permits. The on-stage characters are lampooned versions of Rick Harrison, Austin “Chumlee” Russell, Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison and Richard “The Old Man” Harrison – better known as Slick, Chump, Lil Boss and Old Fart.
