Las Vegas Show Reviews

Donnyáand Marie, Hot and Truly Vegas

donny marie osmond las vegas

Donnyáand Marie Osmond are sizzling at the 750 seat Flamingo Showroom on the Las Vegas strip. They are still incredibly energetic and entertaining at ages 49 and 51, even after more than 5 decades of stage performances all over the world, on TV, in movies, and on Broadway. Despite premium ticket pricing and killer economic times they are playing to full houses, and really giving their all for their screaming teen-like forty to fiftyish baby-boomer fans.

The show is amazing and wonderfully exhausting. Nutra-Marie walks out on stage appearing more svelte that a mother of eight ever should look, and all over the room men gulp the wordáwow, under their breaths. Ageless Donny walks out and women become 12 or 13 again, jumping from their seats to stretch out their hands and scream for his touch. Somehow after all these years they have gone from a cute brother and sister act to sexy and sazzy sex symbols. Both Donny and Marie stir up the madness further by singing in the audience and walking on tables to touch and torture their D&Maniacs.
