“We are so excited that we are finally able to reopen ‘WOW’ at the Rio and once again entertain the Las Vegas audiences that have embraced our show and our cast over the last three years,” said creator and director, Hanoch Rosènn. “After the last 16 months our cast is thrilled and ready to return to the stage with many of the audience’s favorite acts, as well as a few new ones that will for sure ‘wow’ our audiences.”
Rosènn is known worldwide for his extravagant and large-scale productions, including “Festigal” where he directed Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot in her stage-acting debut in 2008. Rosènn created “WOW” as a fast-paced, stunning spectacular which, to date, has been seen by more than 2.5 million people.
