As a young man, Donn Arden took dance lessons but decided that he preferred choreography. His career began in Cleveland, OH, where he was creating stage shows for night clubs. In 1950, he created the Donn Arden Dancers to perform at the Desert Inn in Nevada. Soon, he began to stage French-style shows like the dance revues in Paris. Audiences loved these productions, and Donn Arden's Lido de Paris show ran for over 20 years. These experiences culminated in his masterpiece Las Vegas variety show, Jubilee! One of his greatest achievements, Jubilee! combines both French and American influences into a magnificent showgirl extravaganza. Because of his high standards, Donn Arden only hires classically trained dancers for Jubilee! and other shows. And today, Jubilee! is still one of the most popular revues in Las Vegas.
With music, dancing, and re-enactments of famous events, Donn Arden's Jubilee! is a variety show. Yet without a doubt, the stars of Jubilee! are the showgirls, in stunning costumes and some of the highest feather headdresses in Las Vegas. Bob Mackie designed the clothing using plenty of sequins, glitter, and of course feathers! The showgirls perform against luxurious backgrounds and lavish sets that cost millions of dollars to create. Talented and classy, the Jubilee! ladies dance, sing, and stun the audience with their wonderful voices and intricate choreography. And they do it while wearing glittery bikinis and a couple of feathers. No wonder Jubilee! tickets sell out quickly! Where else can you see a show with singing, dancing girls, and the sinking Titanic? Donn Arden's Jubilee! is pure Las Vegas. So get yourJubilee! seats at TicketNetwork now.
This Las Vegas spectacular has been around for more than 30 years, and it continues to wow audiences today. A traditional showgirl performance, the curtain opens with a $3 million opening number, and goes on through seven acts performed on glamourous sets with more than 1,000 different costumes. The famous Red Feather Fan number — which combines $7,000 in costumes — is performed to a medley of Cole Porter's beloved songs. Get a taste of Vegas with your Jubilee! tickets.
