Things change as my schedule got busier. I now attend most of the performances at Super Summer Theater @ Spring Mountain Ranch. Each month from June through September is a different Broadway style play. At least one of the four is usually a well-known show. The shows run Wednesday through Saturday evenings the Clay start at sunset at the gates open hour or two before this allows the audience to have a picnic style dinner before the play. The seating area is a large open lawn. The left half of the lawn is for blankets; the right for portable chairs. I always bring a fold-able canvas chair. For some shows one or more of the cast members who wander in the audience before the play starts.

A few years ago Las Vegas finally received the gift they needed. The city finally received a place where Broadway at other shows can appear in a full theater that was not in a casino. The Smith Center finally became a reality. Many Broadway and other shows are longer than the 90 minute block preferred by casinos.
Many great shows comparable to Broadway have come to the city since the center open. I spent a year anxiously about Kinky Boots, which was starting their traveling tour in Vegas. I had heard a lot about The Book of Mormon then understood when I finally got to see it. I have seen Mary Poppins in New York, and both professional and amateur versions at the Smith Center.
