David Saxe, owner of David Saxe Productions, announced that he has acquired the 400-seat theater at the Aladdin’s Desert Passage as well as its restaurant and kitchen, nightclub and lounge space, offices, and convention space.

Saxe, who produces shows in Japan, Atlantic City and San Francisco as well as "V - the Ultimate Variety Show" and "Showgirls of Magic" in Las Vegas, will now oversee the entertainment complex which formally housed the Ovation showroom and the show "Ovation" created by his company.

Since agreeing to purchase the theater, Saxe has moved his show "V - the Ultimate Variety Show" to the theater and has re-named the showroom, The "V" Theater.

"I am elated to have so many entertainment opportunities now under my direction," Saxe said. "Along with the showroom, I will be bringing in a restaurant and nightlife concept with proven success stories in their respective fields and will work with a variety of producers and professionals to keep all areas filled with revenue-generating business and great entertainment."

Saxe added he will make the restaurant, nightclub and lounge space and convention facility available to private groups.

"V" features seven different acts and includes such Vegas standouts as juggler Wally Eastwood, comedian Joe Trammel, balancing act Iouri and Nikolai, magicians Nathan Burton and Sarah as well as Jason Byrne, comedy duo Mario and Daniel and musician and producer extraordinaire Doug Deforest, among others.

"Ba Da Bing," the interactive dinner show with an Italian flavor, will continue to entertain audiences at the new "V" Theater and Saxe will be announcing shortly upcoming entertainment offerings including, but not limited to, a sexy late-night production, a summer afternoon offering, the debut of the nightlife space and the grand opening of the restaurant.

Saxe formerly produced his sister’s show, Melinda (Saxe): The First Lady of Magic.
