Ever since the 2009 premiere of his Divas In A Man’s World® show in Monterrey, Mexico producer Steven Andrade has been thrilling audiences internationally with his brilliant portrayal of the legendary music icon Cher. Here are some highlights from our recently ended run- originally a 3-month engagement ultimately extended to 14 months- showcasing his dazzling costumes and and crowd pleasing homage to Cher. (Be sure not to miss his cameo on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen at the end). Enjoy!
Here’s our very own CEO, producer and creative director Steven Andrade as Cher (and guest bartender) appearing on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday’s show. What a fantastic time! Everyone there was amazing– couldn’t have been nicer. And thanks for giving a shout-out to our website. Mazel!

Here’s a preview of our fantastic new opening featuring that most legendary Diva of all time– none other than Cleopatra herself; Queen of the ancient world. Producer and creative director Steven Andrade spent months planning and creating Cleopatra’s spectacular emergence from her golden, jewel-encrusted sarcophagus to the stage of Resorts Casino Hotel. Cleopatra doesn’t travel light– she brings with her a crew of loyal servants and a costume so dazzling and brilliant the sun pales in comparison. A true diva, she’s only on stage for a few breathtaking moments before she returns to her sarcophagus for more beauty rest. It’s an opening act worthy of the cast of modern-day Divas that follows– Gary Dee as Joan Rivers, Jason CoZmo as Dolly Parton, Eddie Summers as Patti LaBelle, Phyl Craig as Liza Minnelli, Steven Andrade as Cher (and Cleopatra!) and Frank More as Prince.
You can catch Cleopatra and the the entire cast of Believe– Divas In A Man’s World® nightly in the historic Screening Room theater on the 13th floor of Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. Show times and tickets here.
To find the newest star for our opening act producer Steven Andrade had to travel through centuries to ancient Egypt. From the storied land of pyramids and pharos he is thrilled to bring back to life the most legendary diva of all time- Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt! Sealed for millennia in her magnificent solid gold sarcophagus she emerges on stage to reclaim her title as history’s ultimate diva. Wearing a dazzling gold gown brighter than the sun and a Swarovski crystal studded headpiece that took weeks to create– Steven Andrade as Cleopatra takes Believe– Divas In A Man’s World to a whole new level. Atlantic City’s most spectacular opening act is just the beginning of night filled with the legendary divas you’ve come to love: Gary Dee as ‘Joan Rivers’, Eddie Summers as ‘Patti LaBelle’, Phyl Craig as ‘Liza Minnelli’, Steven Andrade as ‘Cher’, Frank Moore as ‘Prince’ and Jason CoZmo as ‘Dolly Parton’. See it all for yourself nightly in the Screening Room theater on the 13th floor of Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.

The talented and seasoned tech crew at Resorts is second to none.

Where were you 1 year ago? If you were strolling along the boardwalk in front of Resorts Casino Hotel this is what you saw. A billboard featuring a show that few had heard of set to open May 5th. 1 year ago, producer, creative director (and ‘Cher’) Steven Andrade was working 24-hours a day racing to get everything ready for the show’s premiere. Backstage was crazy, the cast and crew working at fever-pitch to get the lighting, music, costumes and props in order. Frank Moore, the show’s choreographer (and ‘Prince’) was testing out and perfecting everybody’s moves.
Flash forward to today and we’re proud and honored to be approaching our 1-year anniversary at Resorts! And it’s all thanks to you– our many friends and fans that have made our show the success it is. What was originally set to run for just 12 weeks has turned into a year and we couldn’t be happier!
