Dennis T:   The venue itself features several sections of long tables and movable chairs facing an upraised stage.  All sections beyond the first two rest on elevated platforms.  Sight lines are good throughout this performance hall except when latecomers or servers walk in front of a seating section.  Seats are not plush, but are comfortable enough for a 90-minute performance.  Lights and sound are excellent.


Riverside Resort Hotel Casino  

Don Laughlin?s Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino is located in Laughlin, Nevada, on the Colorado River. Laughlin operated the 101 Club in Las Vegas. He opened Riverside Resort which offered all-you-can-eat chicken dinners for 98 cents, 12 slot machines and two live gaming tables, and 8 motel rooms. Out of 8 motel rooms, 4 were occupied by Don Laughlin?s family.

The resort has a full-service RV park with 740 spaces, as well as several restaurants. The hotel has its own yacht, The U.S.S. Riverside, which is available for charter. Along the banks of the Colorado River and nestled between surrounding majestic mountains, emerges the picturesque expanse named for gaming pioneer Don Laughlin.

Don's Celebrity Theatre is the main showroom inside Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort Hotel & Casino.  Almost every night this fairly large venue features live performances by various musical groups, individual singers, magicians, comedians, dancers, ventriloquists, and tribute artists.  Cocktails served by cocktail waitresses are available for purchase during performances.  Red is the predominant color inside this room.

Kathy B:  Love this place! See the entertainers up close cocktails available.

@TaylorHicks saved the best for last, complete with a new song!

Lyrics to the new song "off the record" as he described at the press conference on the first day of his Laughlin run.
By Tony Brook
On a summer night, when we first met
In a little town near Lafayette
Your black eyes I can’t forget
Lookin’ straight through me you were soakin’ wet
Couldn't get your name couldn't get your number
About that time I heard him thunder
Your father spoke as if to threat
Saying keep away from my Juliet
I used to meet you down in Atchafalaya
Down on the levee overlookin’ the bayou
Spanish moss in a cypress tree
We were close to God just you and me (2x)
We’d steal away and dance all night
To Evangeline in three quarters moonlight
Only mine I wanted you to be
But your daddy wouldn’t stand for a poor boy like me
But you came to me through the fog of the water
You're much more than just a rich man’s daughter
We took our chances on rendezvous
You came to me I came to you
(repeat chorus)
A winter's day, cold winter weather
You just gave up on us ever bein’ together
You took your life like lovers do
Think I’ll do the same so I can be with you
I used to meet you down in Atchafalaya
Under the levee overlookin’ the bayou
Spanish moss in a cypress tree
We’ll be close to God just you and me (3x)
