Tenner makes and stars in the display, but there is a good band with again up singers. Purple Reign has been performed primarily at casinos in the Las Vegas location for two decades, but now there’s a North American tour and the band will go to the Shubert Theatre in New Haven for 1 evening Thursday, Might 23.
