A Mob Story: A History of the Mob Vegas Style


The mob has a long-standing history in Las Vegas. In fact, some would even say that the mob helped to found the city, and they’re not completely wrong. There was a lot of mob involvement in the casinos and the early makings of The Strip and Downtown Las Vegas as we know it today.

Starting in September, The Plaza Hotel & Casino will offer a new show, “A Mob Story”, which will tell the story of how the mob helped to make Las Vegas. The show features music, dancing, and narration from “The Prince of the Mafia”, Michael Franzese. It will tell the story of the mob in a way it’s never been told before.

The show was created and will be directed by Jeff Kutash, who has won an Emmy and a Golden Globe award. Brian Friedman is the supervising choreographer for the show, and he has worked with Vegas famous stars like Britney Spears and Mariah Carey. “A Mob Story” is said to be the most accurate representation of the mob since Michael Franzese is involved with the show.

Franzese has relations with the New York Columbo crime family. He was one of the biggest money makers in the mob since Al Capone, making around $5-8 million per week from various businesses. He was even listed at number 18 for the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”. The show will tell more about his story and the mob in general.

Tickets to “A Mob Story” are on sale now and start at $59.95 for general admission seats. At only $20 more, you can get VIP seats for $79.95. Platinum seats that include a meet and greet with Franzese and performers, along with preferred seating, go for $150.

You can also enhance your experience with the Godfather Package which includes a Prix Fixe dinner menu and a general admission ticket to the show. A Mob Story will be one of the summer’s hottest shows, so call The Plaza Hotel & Casino Box Office at 702.386.2507 or buy tickets now!
