“American Superstars,” one of the longest-running shows in Las Vegas, will close at the Stratosphere on March 30.
The celebrity impersonator show debuted at the resort in April 1996 in the Stratosphere’s lounge, but is now in the Theater of the Stars Showroom. Over the years, the show has featured impersonators portraying celebrities like Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Lady Gaga.
“American Superstars” runs nightly at varying times. The last performance will be at 8:30 p.m. March 30.
A spokeswoman for the property said the show’s closure was a mutual decision between the property and the producers. There are no immediate plans to bring in another show.
“The Stratosphere has been very good to us these past 15 years,” show producers Donny Lee Moore and Mark Callas said in a statement. “We have enjoyed a great working relationship with such nice people.”
The Stratosphere also announced that its vampire-themed adult show, Bite, will move to 9 p.m. from the 10:30 p.m. spot it currently holds. The show runs nightly.
The property recently went through a$20 million renovation, which included about 900 new rooms, revamped restaurants and updates on the casino floor.
The Stratosphere also brought in a new general manager, Paul Hobson, in January.
