Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream is gaining popularity. Reflecting its awards as Best Magic Show by the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s 2018 Best of Las Vegas poll, the production has moved into a bigger space - Bally’s Las Vegas’ 250-seat Windows Showroom. The showroom offers a larger stage than Mortimer’s previous home at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. With the move will come new visuals as well.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Caesars Entertainment by bringing the show to a new and larger stage to showcase Xavier’s astounding illusions,” said Alex Goude, international celebrity and writer and director of Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream in a statement. “It certainly feels like a magical dream come true.”
Mortimer’s debut began at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Sin City Theater in 2016. But he’s been on the Strip since 2013 when he joined Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE. He is the first performer for a Cirque du Soleil production to headline his own show on the Strip.
“The longer-term vision for this venue at Bally’s Las Vegas is a dedicated space for a wide variety of magic-inspired shows, including talented magicians who currently perform with us like Xavier Mortimer and Frederic Da Silva. Specific planning and development are still ongoing with other changes yet to be determined,” said Damian Costa, Vice President of Entertainment Operations at Caesars Entertainment in a statement.
The 70-minute production takes audiences inside Mortimer’s dream world and his quest to win the affection of his love interest, Belle. The show includes 14 acts of jaw-dropping illusions, eccentric characters, dancing and animations, all set to an original soundtrack composed by Mortimer and Maxime Rodriguez.
Show times for Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream are at 6 p.m. from Saturday through Thursday. You can find discounted tickets here on Best of Vegas.
