The first- and second-place finishers from 2012’s Season 7 of the TV talent contest are among the entertainers in the seven-week stint that began Monday.
Olate Dogs, the performing pooches that wowed fans and took home the $1 million top prize, will headline the show in the Palazzo Theatre. On television the dogs, trained by the father-and-son team of Richard and Nicholas Olate, delighted audiences with their backflips and other stunts.
Hosting the show is Season 7 runner-up Tom Cotter, the first comedian ever to reach the “America’s Got Talent” finals. Besides sharing some laughs, he’ll be introducing the other acts. They include:
- Anna Graceman, the 13-year-old singer-songwriter who delivered a surprisingly soulful rendition of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” when she auditioned for the show’s Season 6.
- Jarrett & Raja, magicians with a unique blend of illusion, music and comedy.
- Lightwire Theater, whose troupe members don electroluminescent costumes to perform glow-in-the-dark dance routines.
The production is generally dark on Friday nights, but that varies. The full schedule, and tickets, are available online or by calling (702) 414-9000. Tickets range from $45 to $125.
