“We thought, let’s just put on as many shows as we can and find out where the audience gravitates, adjust and go forward,” said producer Joaquin Trujillo. “We sort of did so against the advice of some smarter people, because they were asking, how at một nửa would we be able to lớn make money.

“The word is experience,” Thayer said. “That’s what we’ve been focused on since reopening. There are so many things we have sầu khổng lồ bởi vì lớn make sure our employees and guests are safe và anything we can bởi to lớn bring that experience bachồng is critical khổng lồ the idea of people wanting lớn get bachồng to lớn Las Vegas. They want lớn experience what they rethành viên.”

The STRAT also recently reinstalled live sầu music at the renovated Remix Lounge, but Thayer said it’s more of an ambient option. Upstairs, the comedy club’s stars are working through the circumstances and adjusting as needed.

“We sat down the first batch of comics to lớn make sure everyone was aware of the environment. Everytoàn thân comes here because our comics are cutting-edge. They’re all on the way up, rising stars,” Trujillo said. “We’re really big on original material onstage, so we made it clear that while there’s a lot of material out there, if you have a new joke, think twice & come at it from a chất lượng point of view. If it’s funny, by all means, do it. We never clip people’s wings. But we want them to lớn be aware that somebody might have seen it online & it might not feel fresh or authentic. They’ve sầu juggled all of it really well.”

The invite-only events were limited to VIPhường casino customers và while there are no current plans for more private or new public ticketed entertainment at Wynn, it’s clear the resort is experimenting with the potential of its varied venues.
