Live Entertainment Issue

Entertainment attractions take center stage in the April 2017 issue of Leisure Group Travel.

“Curtain Calls,” our annual guide to top group-friendly theaters around the country, presents some crowd-pleasing ideas for a fun night out. Options range from an Elvis Presley tribute to dinner theaters offering Broadway favorites. Our Central Region feature focuses on historic theaters in small and mid-tier cities that have been converted into sparkling performing arts centers with ambitious lineups of Broadway musicals, concerts and big-name comedians. Included in the article by staff writer Danielle Golab are exquisite specimens of Art Deco architecture, such as the Historic Fox Theater in Hutchinson, Kansas; Adler Theatre in Davenport, Iowa; and Historic Chief Theater in Bemidji, Minnesota. Readers also get the lowdown on chuckwagon dinner shows with cowboy entertainment and hearty grub. This West Region feature includes Cottonwood, Arizona’s Blazin’ M Ranch, home of the flying biscuit, and Ball Ranch Chuckwagon Supper & Original Western Stage Show in Abilene, Texas.

For nighttime frivolity on the international front, managing editor Randy Mink looks at medieval banquets in Britain and Ireland. In “Days of Yore, Knights to Remember,” he describes feasts that take place in centuries-old castles, plus a rousing London attraction called The Medieval Banquet. Rounding out coverage in the April issue is a feature on top aquariums in the Northeast and a roundup of new travel developments in the Southern states, such as the big expansion at Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis and new American Revolution Museum at Yorktown in Virginia (pictured on the magazine’s cover).
