Don Rickles with Peggy March at the Stardust

Mar 5, 2002 7:08 AM

Don Rickles, one of Las Vegas’ comedy legends, will be joined by international singing favorite Peggy March for a four-night engagement at the Stardust Resort and Casino, Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. For ticket information, call (702) 732-6325.

Rickles is entering his second year as a Stardust headliner. Last year he reaffirmed his box office viability by playing to enthusiastic capacity crowds in a series of engagements in the resort’s Wayne Newton Theater.

Rickles takes great pride in fashioning every show into a totally original tour-de-force, artfully blending trademark phrases and routines with instantaneous flashes of comedy genius. Rickles still stalks the stage like a panther, hilariously pouncing on members of his orchestra, the showroom staff and the audience.

March has maintained a strong following in the United States, Europe and Asia since debuting at the age of 15 as “Little Peggy March” with the single, “I Will Follow Him.”

March has spent most of her career as a television and concert star in Europe and Japan, but maintains her stateside following by touring as one of the featured headliners in the “Legendary Ladies of Rock ”˜n’ Roll” stage show.
