LAS VEGAS, April 17, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Danny Gans will return to
the Wynn family in February, 2009, when he brings his unique one-man show to
the new Encore resort at Wynn Las Vegas.
Wynn Resorts Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn commented: "Danny Gans'
continuing role as the star of the Encore Theater underscores the individual
identity of our new resort and underscores our continuing, unqualified
commitment to excellence in service and entertainment. I built the Danny Gans
Theater at the Mirage in 2000 as a result of being convinced that he would
bring to our family a standard of performing artistry unequalled by any other
single star in Las Vegas. The result has been obvious, and he has occupied
that singular position ever since. On a very personal as well as professional
level, I am absolutely delighted to welcome him back into our newer family
across the street. We are going to have a great time together -- just like the
Singer, comedian, impressionist and actor, Gans has been named Las Vegas'
"Entertainer of the Year" for 11 straight years in a row. Known as "The Man of
Many Voices," he was hailed by People Magazine for reviving "the age of
impressionism in Las Vegas." Gans has been selling out his shows for almost 12
years in Las Vegas, and has spent the last eight years performing at the
Mirage in a theater built for him by Steve Wynn.
