In an amazing experience as I was watching the world famous Legends in Concert show, which is located at the dazzling Flamingo Las Vegas, in the heart of the Las Vegas strip; I was picked out of the audience by MARILYN MONROE !– who is performed by Stacey Whitton Summers. In exact Marilyn style and voice she sang to me, and flirted around with me up on stage in front of the whole audience ! She looks exactly like the real Marilyn Monroe , so check out the video to see for yourself. Below photo of Stacey Whitton Summers as Marilyn Monroe :
The show performs year-round six nights per week. Legends, hailed as a “Las Vegas Strip Institution” by the media, was first introduced in 1983 at the Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino and moved to the Flamingo property in 2013. One of few remaining showrooms set in the old Vegas style with tiered showroom seating, the Donny & Marie Showroom seats more than 700 guests, and includes VIP booths. Very talented performers pay tribute to a select group of superstars from the past and present. Not only do they sound like the original stars, they look and perform like them too.
Marilyn Monroe is an icon who has lasted throughout the decades, and Stacey Whitton Summers pays perfect tribute to this multi-generational star. Having worked since 1994 as a professional tribute artist, Stacey is one of Legend’s impeccable veterans. Where it all begins for Stacey, is at age five, harmonizing with her mother’s tunes. Throughout her adolescence Stacey developed her musical passions by ceaselessly playing classical saxophone, and continued her performance training as a major in theater and opera.
When Stacey realized her love for musical comedy, she naturally turned to Marilyn Monroe for inspiration. As she was learning to mimic Marilyn’s unforgettable facial expressions, Stacey simultaneously developed her ability to recreate Marilyn’s trademark voice and stage presence. Now, in between fabulous renditions of Marilyn Monroe songs, Stacey engages with the audience, improvising, relying on her years of training and practice to pull off an incredibly realistic Marilyn tribute.
With years of experience, Stacey has traveled around the world with her hand-made costumes and beautiful performances. She has played for U.S. troops, shared the stage with Dolly Parton, and earned a place as a finalist on ABC’s T.V. show “The Next Big Thing”. Aside from gracing the Legend’s audience with her renditions of Marilyn Monroe, Stacey also performs as Madonna, Shania Twain, Gretchen Wilson, and Martina McBride. She even had the opportunity to perform as Shania Twain, for Shania Twain! We’re lucky here at Legends in Concert to have a performer as versatile and experienced as Stacey, and while live performances can always have unseen complications—she handles every hurdle with grace and ease.
