You can stop calling it the theater formerly known as the Steve Wyrick Theater. The Miracle Mile Shops’ $34 million, 435-seat show space will heretofore be known as the Saxe Theater and will move forward under the direction of one David Saxe.

Saxe, who started his career as a producer at age 17 with his sister’s show, Melinda — First Lady of Magic, already is well known within the Miracle Mile Shops’ halls. Saxe opened the V Theater in 2004 and recently developed the new Stripper Bar outside of the V Theater, which features easily the Strip’s largest stripper — Sin City Sindy, a 25-foot statue who’ll reign over the bar’s entrance.

Saxe’s new acquisition has been dark — or, empty with lights glaring, as it were — since Wyrick and his Real Magic show went “poof!” in December of last year. But the new operator of the 22,000-square-foot theater won’t let it stay that way for long. The Saxe Theater reportedly will reopen in June with “the first major talent-driven Las Vegas stage production in more than a decade.” Bold words from the man behind strippernormous.
