Love poker?Love Broadway?Well, if you are in Las Vegas this weekend, you’ll have a chance to enjoy both in one sitting as “All In: The Poker Musical” will debut at the Rio.The show, created by Tim Molyneux with help from Phil Hellmuth and the World Series of Poker, will be performed for two nights only, July 4th and 5th.
The story revolves around the nine players at the final table of the WSOP, one of whom is actually Phil Hellmuth.A press release for the musical describes it as “…fast paced, witty, sexy and fun. Molyneux's music is as varied as the characters themselves with a mix of styles ranging from pop, country, rock, blues, jazz and musical theater.”
Molyneux has created numerous large-scale production shows, including “Bite” at the Stratosphere.He has also worked with Dolly Parton, Playboy, and Royal Caribbean Cruises.
Said Jennifer Harman, “Tim Molyneux has done what others have tried to do by capturing the global phenomena of poker by brilliantly tying it to one of the most powerful forces on earth…music.Poker is life and Tim shows us this in a very entertaining way.”
