Last Updated:

While Vegas is not as poppin’ as London or New York City when it comes to musicals, you’ll still find a handful of musical-style shows in the Entertainment Capital of the World.

You’ll find all kinds of shows here. You can watch a multi-award winning musical like Jersey Boys, or get really weird with musical shows like Zombie Burlesque.

If nothing on our main list fits the bill for you, you can also explore the seasonal offerings at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts!


Jersey Boys

They had a look, an attitude, and a sound like no other. Sure, they were born in Jersey. But they were made in America.

Jersey Boys is a Tony, Grammy, and Olivier award-winning musical that tells the captivating story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, from their humble beginnings in New Jersey to their rise to fame.

First premiering on Broadway in 2005, the instant hit show features many of the Four Seasons’ greatest hits, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” The two-hour and 15-minute show features a unique structure with each of the Four Seasons narrating a different part of the story, providing an overall picture of the group’s journey to fame.

Menopause The Musical

Menopause The Musical

Prepare for a night of laughter, camaraderie, and nostalgia. With over 5,000 performances, Menopause The Musical has delighted audiences for over 15 years – making it the longest-running musical in Las Vegas history. MEN LOVE IT TOO!

The story unfolds in a department store, where four women with seemingly nothing in common meet by chance at a lingerie sale. The characters—a housewife, a power professional, an earth mother, and a soap star—quickly bond over their shared experiences with menopause, each bringing their unique perspective and sense of humor to the mix.

The musical numbers are clever parodies of well-known songs, with lyrics that cleverly address everything from hot flashes and mood swings to weight gain and memory loss. All in all, Menopause The Musical is a light-hearted celebration that encourages you to laugh and sing along.

I know what you’re thinking… Zombie Burlesque — what?? And why??

Zombie Burlesque may sound like a truly odd combination at first glance, but its longevity in Las Vegas speaks volumes about its unique charm and entertainment value. This odd combination of a show offers a quirky blend of comedy, music, and dance that just seems to work.

Get ready for a wild ride at Zombie Burlesque, where zany musical zombies from the atomic era take over the stage at “Club Z” for a night of variety acts, comedy, and live big band performances. The undead have never looked so good as they bring your fantasies back to life in this unique comedy musical set in 1958, where zombies and the living coexist after a deal with the President of The United States.

At Club Z, audiences are treated to homages of classic horror movies performed by the most beautiful (and “dead” sexy) women in town, alongside impressive feats of balance and strength by skilled performers.
