Tribute artist show Legends in Concert unveiled the finished renovations today at its new Myrtle Beach location in advance of its first performance tonight.
"Everybody who walked in said, 'Oh my gosh,'" said Brian Brigner, COO of OnStage Entertainment, which produces Legends, at today's press conference. "It was just a shell [before] when most of them entered for their first time."
Brigner had announced in September that the show would move from its longtime Surfside Beach location to Broadway at the Beach, taking over the former venue of Club Kryptonite. The more central location will bring in more tourists, Brigner said at the time.
Workers wiped down seats and set up a snack bar today in final preparation for the show's opening.
After Brigner's remarks, he introduced seven impersonators most of whom will perform at tonight's show. The celebrities being impersonated included Michael Jackson, the Blues Brothers, Dolly Parton, Elvis, Jay Leno and Little Richard.
OnStage has signed a 20 year lease with Broadway's owner Burroughs & Chapin Co. Inc., said Monique Newton, a B&C spokeswoman.
