“BAZ - Star Crossed Love" Celebrates One-Year Anniversary at The Palazzo; Welcomes Back Originating Cast Member Ruby Lewis
LAS VEGAS (July 5, 2017) - Acclaimed production “BAZ - Star Crossed Love," which made its spectacular debut at The Palazzo Las Vegas in July 2016, will celebrate its one-year anniversary throughout the month of July and usher in the return of originating star Ruby Lewis.

(Vegas.com), features an ensemble cast and band.
