Broadway star Brent Barrett and his husband, entertainer Bernie Blanks, will perform two nights of classic Broadway songs on Sept. 3 and Sept. 4 at The Vegas Room (953 E Sahara Avenue, Suite E18) to benefit Golden Rainbow.

Called "Islands in the Stream," tickets start at $79 and include a handcrafted five-course dinner by Executive Chef David James Robinson at 6:30 p.m. and preferred seating for the 8 p.m. performance.

Barrett and Blanks will entertain with insightful banter and personal life reminiscences, studded with duets and solos from classic Broadway shows, including "The King and I," "Wicked," "Rent" and "Chess," plus pop favorites and standards from the "Great American Songbook."

Barrett has entertained millions of fans around the world, starring in "CHICAGO - The Musical," "Annie Get Your Gun," "Grand Hotel," "Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular" and"Kiss Me, Kate," along with recording three solo albums and touring with The Four Phantoms and The Broadway Tenors.

A long-time and dedicated advocate of Golden Rainbow, Barrett has performed in past annual Ribbon of Life shows and presented a virtual cabaret in April to raise funds. Blanks lived and performed in Europe for 20 years before moving to Las Vegas.

Strict social distancing guidelines and limited seating capacity is in place, so tickets are required and expected to sell out.

Tickets are available here.

Code "GOLDEN" activates a $5 discount and a $10 donation to Golden Rainbow to provide critically needed services to men, women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada.
