Shuttered 'Vegas Nocturne' sues The Cosmopolitan

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The producer of a shuttered Las Vegas Strip show that featured stylized circus-style after-dinner performances is accusing the casino-hotel that hosted it of sabotaging its short life.

"Vegas Nocturne" producer Spiegelworld CSC LLC alleges in a breach-of-contract lawsuit filed Wednesday that The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas failed to pay severance to show employees and attempting to block the show from moving to a competing venue.

The lawsuit claims hotel management company Nevada Property 1 LLC owes Spiegelworld some $500,000, failed to return props and costumes, and failed to prevent misappropriation of show funds.

Cosmopolitan officials issued a statement promising to defend the hotel from what they called a meritless lawsuit.

Vegas Nocturne opened on New Year's Eve and closed July 12 at the restaurant and entertainment nightspot Rose. Rabbit. Lie.

Brooklyn Bowl Coming to Las Vegas's Linq in March

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Las Vegas is set to welcome the first Western U.S. Brooklyn Bowl venue in March.

The concert, nightclub, bar, bowling alley and restaurant amalgam is one of the cornerstones of the new 300,000-square-foot Linq project.

The new Brooklyn Bowl is designed with a 2,000-seat performance hall intended to host DJs, nightly concerts, and crowds watching football on Sundays.

The venue's eclectic opening lineup, announced Tuesday, includes Elvis Costello, The Roots, The Avett Brothers and Chance the Rapper.

Casino giant Caesars Entertainment Corp. is promoting the nearly-completed Linq project as a way to lure younger patrons to Las Vegas.

The Brooklyn Bowl brand originated in Williamsburg, the New York hipster haven. It recently expanded with a new location in London.

Brooklyn Bowl's first Las Vegas concert is scheduled for March 8.
