Currently, there are nearly $28 billion in projects that are either under construction or renovation in Las Vegas. That means there will be more to see in the Entertainment Capital of the World than ever before.

One of the biggest hotel and casinos to open in 2006 will be Red Rock Station. The nearly $1 billion property will have 70,000 square feet in meeting and convention space along with more than 400 guest rooms, including 38 suites.

Two Las Vegas properties will be debuting brand new themes, beginning with the Hotel San Remo. The property has transformed itself into the world's first Hooters Casino Hotel. The $130 million Hooterized hotel debuted in February with eight new restaurants and bars including Dan Marino's Fine Food and Spirits, Pete and Shorty's Sports Book and Bar, Hooters Beach Club and 24-hour Owl's Nest Cafe. The property's casino and 696 hotel rooms have been remodeled with an updated Hooters look.

The Aladdin Resort and Casino is also undergoing a transformation. The resort is in the process of changing from its current Middle Eastern theme to a sleek and trendy look. The remodeling began in October; it will be executed in phases so that the property may remain open throughout the entire renovation process with minimal impact on the guest experience. Upon completion of renovations, the property will be re-branded and renamed the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Expect to see the new name and the new look during the second half of 2006.

In February 2006, HAIRSPRAY began its multi-year engagement at Luxor Las Vegas. Based on the New Line Cinema film written and directed by John Waters, in HAIRSPRAY its 1962 and plus size trendsetter Tracy Turnblad has danced her way onto TV's most popular show. But can she win over the heartthrob and integrate a television show without denting her 'do? Only in HAIRSPRAY!

In spring, Andrew Lloyd Webber's legendary Phantom of the Opera will open at the Venetian Hotel & Casino. Twenty-time Tony Award winner Harold Prince will direct the new production. Phantom will be permanently housed in a new $25-30 million theater designed and built specifically for the production.

Finally, Cirque du Soleil's fifth resident show featuring the music of the Beatles is scheduled to debut in summer 2006 at The Mirage.
