Representatives for illusionist Steve Wyrick still can't be reached for comment on why his Las Vegas theater and magic show abruptly closed last week -- but Wyrick indicated today he expects to reopen the theater.
"We would like to clarify the misinformation in circulation regarding reports that the Steve Wyrick Theatre has closed. The theatre is temporarily dark, but it is expected to re-open and resume full operation before the end of the month,'' Wyrick said in a statement on his Web site. "The unannounced closure was due to unexpected circumstances. Our goal and intent is to retain our current staff and continue to provide live entertainment from the Steve Wyrick Theatre located in Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood."
After the show on the Las Vegas Strip closed last week, representatives for an act that had been performing there, the 1950s/1960s-style production of the Platters, Cornell Gunter’s Coasters and the Marvelettes, sued Wyrick in Clark County District Court on Friday claiming they had been shorted on pay for their work.
