Donny Osmond Las Vegas Show Review
Donny Osmond Las Vegas show is not what you might think about after a stellar 11 year run at the Flamingo with his sister Marie, because after cutting his 65th album of his career, Osmond takes to the stage by himself.
Performing at Harrah’s Showroom, Osmond brings everything to the table from his stellar six-decade career as a top-notch entertainer. His work ethic, showmanship, and still flourishing singing voice is showcased during his new residency. Osmond will take you back and to his current musical adventure in a production that features everything from video panels to lasers to artificial smoke to plenty of confetti at the end and don’t forget about his singing and dancing skills.
During the Donny Osmond Las Vegas show you get a taste of him stealing the show from Andy Griffith as a child to his classic hit Puppy Love to some of his new stuff from his latest album Start Again which leans more into EDM. There are some videos of him singing Ambitious with Jeff Beck from his darker days of the music industry and there are glimpses of his days in the 1970s when sequins ruled the day and a shirtless Osmond belts out his iconic hits from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Believe it or not this is the first time that Donny Osmond has played on the Strip by himself. The production highlights much of career and there is even a section of the show where the audience is asked to pick a song from any of his albums. Sure, the full band that accompanies him on stage may stumble but Osmond tries really hard to remember the lyrics as he sings. Throughout the production Osmond displays his talents and showmanship over and over again like when he plays a little piano and tap dances a bit which solidifies how this 63-year old guy has stayed on top of the entertainment world for so long.
The Donny Osmond Las Vegas production is masterful with award-winning Greg Young as the producer helped out by Raj Kapoor as the director. The Nappytabs (aka. Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo) are in charge of the choreography. The whole show is something to marvel and you get the idea at the end that Osmond is not ready to quite performing anytime soon.
Sure, you might be disappointed that Marie is not performing with her brother but you never know when she might pop out of the audience. But there is a beautiful tribute to his sister and their stellar careers together when Osmond sings the Beatles hit In My Life. The production concludes with a clever rap by Osmond that starts from the beginning of his career to his present-day life which still brings all of the attributes of a world-class entertainer to the stage.
In the end, Donny Osmond Las Vegas show is a must see on many levels and is something you don’t want to miss out on when you are visiting Sin City.
