l1030239.JPGDramatic, energetic and personal describe the experience of "Ice: Direct from Russia" at the Riviera Versailles Theatre. Because of the small size of the venue, the atmosphere is intimate and contact with the performers up close and personal. What an amazing array of talent – so young, so vibrant, so beautiful – there is a certain naivete that exudes from the postage-stamp size stage where such amazing feats of athleticism and grace are executed.

You take good old-fashioned juggling, trapeze work, flying through the air and landing in chairs, comic relief and elegant icel1030228.JPG dance – combine it with wonderful music, whimsical costumes, magical lighting – and put it on ice skates on a tiny stage (3000 sqft) with a creative "ice walk" through the audience and you have "Ice."

l1030230.JPGCompared with other "Strip shows," this one is a real deal at $59.95 and $69.95. Call 702-794-9433 for tickets. The Versailles is so compact that there are no bad seats. Tues-Thur & Fri 8pm & 10pm. Sun & Mon 8pm. Dark Fridays. Riviera Hotel & Casino 2901 Las Vegas Blvd So Las Vegas NV.
