divorce partyDivorce Party Las Vegas recently premiered at Bally’s Las Vegas. An 80-minute comedic musical with humor, songs and the occasional shock factor, the show explores the realities of relationships, divorce and finally moving on. Considering the divorce rate is hovering at 50 percent, the show demonstrates to both women and men that there is life after divorce. Divorce Party Las Vegas centers around Linda, still reeling from her divorce, and her three friends who come to help her.

“The storyline is incredibly funny, heartfelt and at times a little risqué but most importantly everyone in the audience can relate,” said Dr. Amy Botwinick co-author and producer.

Performances are Saturday to Thursday 8 p.m. at Bally’s Las Vegas in the Windows Showroom. Platinum VIP tickets are available including a round of specialty drinks, premiere seating and a meet & greet with the cast.
