Wynn Revamping Le Reve?

According to the Associated Press, Steve Wynn is paying $15.9 Million to Dragone to secure the rights of Le Reve and expand the show. Wynn intends to add lights, lasers and more performers to the show in order to make it “bigger.” Wynn asked Dragone to change the show (for the second time) but Dragone is busy with other productions, including one for Montréal. Moses Pendleton, the artistic director of surrealist dance company MOMIX, has been hired to complete the retrofit, which will be completed in 2007.
