MGM Resorts announced today that ventriloquist, singer and comedian Terry Fator, who performed a headlining residency at the Mirage for more than a decade, will return to the Las Vegas Strip stage next week with a limited engagement of his new show “Who’s the Dummy Now?” at New York-New York hotel and casino.
Fator is set to perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday, and at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday starting on November 26 and continuing through December 31. Tickets start at $34.95 and are available now at mgmresorts.com.
Just days ago, MGM and Cirque du Soleil announced the permanent closure of New York-New York’s 17-year resident production “Zumanity,” which was performed in the same theater.
“The opportunity to reopen Terry’s new show at the New York-New York Theater is another important step in entertainment’s return to Las Vegas,” said George Kliavkoff, president of entertainment and sports at MGM Resorts. “We have had a great partnership with Terry for more than a decade and are so pleased that fans will once again have the opportunity to enjoy his show.”
Fator began performing in Las Vegas in 2008 after winning the second season of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” This past spring he began looking for a new Vegas home for his show after deciding to part ways with the Mirage.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be getting back on stage at New York-New York with my old friends at MGM Resorts,” Fator said. “I’m at my happiest on stage, in front of an audience. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to make people smile, especially at such a challenging time.”
