Donn Arden’s Jubilee! first opened on July 30, 1981 and quickly became a staple in Las Vegas entertainment. To this day the unparalleled grand spectacle remains to be the last show of its kind, featuring the Strip’s only remaining authentic showgirls. While the best of the show’s main elements have been preserved as a nod to the original production, the choreography, staging and music have been refreshed for today’s audience.
