Al Pacino Spends A Night Onstage In Las Vegas

Actor, screenwriter, producer, and director Al Pacino brought "An Evening with Al Pacino" to the Opaline Theatre inside The Venetian® Las Vegas, Saturday, Oct. 15. The Oscar, Tony, and Emmy award-winning performer opened up to the audience about his five-decade career. Guests were given the opportunity to speak directly with the living legend in the venue's intimate and inviting setting.

The film star discussed how he got into acting - in spite of a childhood ambition to play baseball - and talked about his mentors who included Charlie Lung and Lee Strosberg. Among the revelations he gave were that Paramount Pictures did not want him cast as Michael Corleone in "The Godfather." When asked who his most difficult role was, he replied "Sonny Wortzik in 'Dog Day Afternoon'."

The stage and screen icon ended the evening with a monologue from "When God Looked Away," a play where Pacino portrays famed playwright Tennessee Williams. The play, adapted from Dotson Rader's 1985 Williams biography, is scheduled for Broadway during the 2016-17 season.

Pacino has starred in more than 40 films, including "The Godfather" trilogy, "Dog Day Afternoon," "Serpico," "Dick Tracy," "Heat," "Scarface," "Any Given Sunday," "Carlito's Way," and "Scent of a Woman," for which he won an Oscar for in 1992. In 2011, he was awarded a National Medal of Arts from President Obama.

  1. I am Alecia used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes…i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Dr Abalaka); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn’t mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I’m sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as dr.abalaka@outlook.com He travel sometimes.love marriage,finance, job promotion ,gambling voodoo,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,it’s all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
