If you saw Greg London walking down Virginia Street in downtown Reno, you may not recognize him … Reno’s own “Master of Disguise” and star of the stage show ICONMAN at Harrah’s may be better known for the characters he impersonates. Whether it’s the hip-shaking swagger of Elvis Presley, the showmanship of Elton John or the charm of Austin Powers, London’s return to Harrah’s center stage – running through May 31 at Sammy’s Showroom – wows the audience with accurate portrayals wrapped in a humorous package.
London previously starred in his own Harrah’s show, “Icons.” The new show brings new humor, new characters and new stage antics to the production.
“I love the new show,” says London. “While we were fleshing it out during the winter break, we frequently had to stop so we all could laugh. I think the new humor added days to our rehearsal time!”
“As exciting as it is to perform this fantastic new show, I’m equally excited to be returning to Reno.” London added. “This is such a great part of the country. The opportunity to perform in Reno is truly icing on the cake for us.”
In addition to his talent as actor and comedian, London has also won commercial and critical acclaim as a singer. His single, “Everything I own,” has been climbing Billboard’s Hot Adult Contemporary Charts, with great radio play.
Come see this entertainment impresario at Harrah’s Reno for this limited engagement.

“The change” may cause consternation for some women – and their significant others – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be funny.
“Menopause the Musical” is coming to the Eldorado Hotel Casino in Reno for an engagement starting Feb. 25. Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, the original off-Broadway musical begins with four women at a Bloomingdale’s lingerie sale. These ladies have nothing in common – but a black lace bra, hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, chocolate binges, not enough sex, too much sex and day-to-day challenges.
The women share their ups and downs through a collection of 25 re-lyricized baby boomer songs from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. It was written by Jeanie Linders and is produced by South Florida-based GFour Productions. It has been seen by more than 10 million people all over the world since it debuted in a 76-seat perfume-shop-turned-theater in Orlando, Fla. in 2001.
Tickets are available from $29.95 for adults, $24.95 for seniors. Dinner and show packages available from $39.95. Room and Show package from $49.95.
