The Mentalist
Gerry McCambridge performs comedy, magic and mind-reading live on stage. Access Hollywood calls it “amazing!” Nominated “Best Magician in Las Vegas” and voted “World’s Best Entertainer” in his field, Gerry thrills audiences with his ability to get inside the minds of others. You won’t believe it until you see him LIVE.

The 80’s Show
The interactive musical rad-o-rama that’s taking Vegas by storm! YOU can be the star as you moonwalk down memory lane in a story straight out of an 80s teen movie set to the greatest hits of the decade! Win prizes, become a part of the show, sing along with the performers, or enjoy watching fellow audience members as they strut their stuff on stage! This show is perfect for families, bachelorette parties, or anyone looking to have fun and relive music’s greatest decade – or experience it for the first time!

Guidelines for all show review submissions:

1. You must be a Recess Contributor.  If you have not signed up, please visit the RECESS Contributor page first.

2. You must contact Melly Allen, Community Director and Editor, at [email protected] and formally request to obtain show tickets and write a review.  Once approved, you will be contacted.

3. You will have two weeks from the day you attended the show to submit your review.  If you require more time, you must notify Melly Allen before the two week deadline.

4. All submitted content posts must be at least 200 characters in length.

5. All submitted content must have at least 3 photos (including a photo of ticket stubs, theater entrance, marquee and show posters, etc.).  We understand photos are prohibited in the theater so we’d like for pictures to be taken before and after the show outside the theater.  If you are using a photo belonging to someone else, we require permission to use photo.  Video is highly desired but not required.

6. You must post about attending the show before and after using at least 2 social media outlets (i.e. Twitter, Instagram, etc.).  You also must post your final review (once it’s been published on Recess’ site) via Twitter and one other social media outlet.

7. Due to your post being a review, Recess requires the Contributor to actually attend the show or the content submission will not be accepted.  We expect the review to be honest and a reflection of your own experiences and opinions.

8. We will not accept a review that contains vulgar or inappropriate language and images.

9. We will not accept a review that is not original or authentic.  While it is acceptable to link your review to other posts, we ask that you do not copy material from other sites.

10. Once your review is submitted, it will be checked for accuracy.  Please note that we will not accept reviews that are not complete or do not meet the criteria.

11. Recess reserves the right to make any changes or corrections to your review.

12. Recess is providing the Contributor with free show tickets in good faith and all we ask for in return is professional courtesy and complying with the review guidelines.
