Rock Dinner Show in Orlando Set to Take Stage

The Rock Dinner Show, an all-new dining entertainment experience, is set to debut in Orlando beginning September 8, 2018. This Vegas-style show will be performed nightly at the Orlando Forum Theatre, located at 6362 International Dr., Orlando, FL 32819. This venue can accommodate up to 300 guests. Look-alike rock and pop artists will entertain guests. They will be performing acts from such icons as Prince, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and others.

Additionally, singers, performances by actors, actresses, aerialists, and dancers will also add to the  Rock Dinner Show. Their website states, “an all-star cast of legendary performers” will perform “for an unforgettable night that will amaze the senses with energizing music that will transform you to another place and time.” And, “sensational dancing that will captivate your eyes.” While not yet open, somehow, the “electrifying visual effects… have earned The Rock Show a standing ovation each and every time.”  Perhaps by the individual performers at other shows? Just a guess…we’re not sure how they can make this claim prior to being opened.

The Menu at the Rock Dinner Show

As for the dinner portion of the evening, “award-winning cuisine by renowned executive chef Russell T. Booth” will be served. Booth’s recognition is from Hard Rock Cafe. The Rock Dinner Show menu includes the choice of 3 dishes. They are Scallopini of Chicken, Braised Short Rib or Vegan Pasta Primavera. Main entree upgrades are also available adding $9-$10 to your ticket. A dessert made of a chocolate mousse-filled cupcake, topped with a creamy and rich chocolate frosting and chocolate pearls follows the main course. In contrast, the kid’s (3-12) menu consists of Macaroni and Meatballs or a Vegetarian Macaroni, followed by dessert perfect for children: house-made fried vanilla doughnuts tossed in cinnamon and sugar, served in a paper bag.

Furthermore, brunch buffets will be offered at the Rock Dinner Show on Saturday and Sunday mornings in addition to the nightly shows. So if you want to get a taste of the food and entertainment, this is a less expensive option to check out this new Orlando dinner show.

Orlando Dinner Show Tickets

Tickets for regular adult admission are $64.95. Children tickets (ages 3-12 yrs.) are $39.95 and infants (ages 0-3 yrs.) are free. As with most local dinner shows, upgrades are available which include VIP seating, a concert pass, 1 glass of alcohol (wine, beer or champagne), a photo package and an on-stage meet & greet photo. Tickets for the brunch buffet shows are $29.95 (adult) and $19.95 (child).

In contrast, Capone’s Dinner & Show includes a large option of beverages with their tickets, including alcoholic beverages. The selection includes mixed drinks, beer, and wine. At half the cost of this new Orlando dinner show, it remains the best value!

The Unique Prohibition Era Dinner Show Near Me

One of the best things about the dinner show near me is the unique prohibition era show that Capone’s offers. Unlike the other Kissimmee dinner show, you won’t find it at 8 other locations throughout the US & Canada. No sir. It is the one and only. Enjoyable and affordable too!

So when I discovered another prohibition era show called “Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical,” well, I just had to read all of the details. No, you won’t find this pre-dinner show near me in Orlando or anywhere near you (most likely, anyway). For this, you’ll have to take to the high seas!

Dinner Show Near Me - Norwegian Cruise Line

Tantalizing madams will regale you with tales of bootleggers and some of the era’s most famous tunes.

Norwegian Bliss Cruise ShipNorwegian Cruise Line’s, Norwegian Bliss, will officially be christened in Seattle on May 30. However, the ship will stop in Port Miami on it’s way to its summer home. Next winter, it will set sail from its home port in New York. It is the cruise line’s largest ship holding 4,004 passengers. It offers destinations that include Alaska, Eastern Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Bahamas/Florida/New York, Panama Canal and the Pacific Coast.

Wishing This Dinner Show Near Me

What does this cruise ship have to do with a newly discovered prohibition era show? The Norwegian Bliss is where you’ll find the new interactive show, Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical being performed. It is certainly not a dinner show near me, but I can certainly wish for me to be near it someday!

Unlike Capone’s Dinner & Show set in gangland Chicago, this show will take to back in time to the world-famous Madam Lulu’s New Orleans speakeasy. A speakeasy set in the Big Easy!

Tantalizing madams will regale you with tales of bootleggers and some of the era’s most famous tunes. You’ll be dancing in the aisles, rocking the ship. This show takes place back in time to the eve of the Prohibition era. Of course, the cruise line will be offering once forbidden spirits of their own, each with a modern twist. Afterall, our drinking habits have changed significantly since January 16, 1919.

If this pre-dinner show isn’t enough to tempt you to come aboard, the Tony Award-Winning Broadway show, Jersey Boys, will also be performed aboard the Norwegian Bliss. Another show being performed will take you back to the 1950’s to ¡HAVANA! A show that celebrates Cuba’s music and culture. As with most cruise lines, the entertainment will be top-notch.

Norwegian Bliss

Of course, there is the ship itself featuring a 180-degree observation lounge. A ‘ship-within-a-ship’ called The Haven has its own penthouses, spa, sunbathing deck, and restaurant. The Norwegian Bliss also includes six infinity hot tubs as part of its two-pool sundecks. Also on board are a kids’ aqua park (with a cool slide), a decorative oversized chocolate fountain, The Cellars wine bar, the Mandara Spa, a fitness center, casino and much more. Are you ready to pack your bags? I am!


If you are looking for a great dinner show near you, and you are in the Orlando area, be sure to pay a (respectful) visit to the wise guys at Capone’s Dinner Show. If you are looking for a Mardi Gras twist to a prohibition era show, take to the high seas!

To book a cruise and see the show on the Norwegian Bliss, call 888-625-2784 or visit www.ncl.com for details. To make a reservation at the dinner show near me, go to alcapones.com. Both shows are unique and are sure to be unforgettable.

Happy Mother’s Day Weekend from Al’s pals!

Just a quick note from Al and the gang at Capone’s Dinner & Show to wish all Mother’s a very Happy Mother’s Day weekend. We certainly hope that whatever your plans are for this special time, you’ll think of Mom and include her (if you can).

Special Mother’s Day Show

Our Mother’s Day Show is filling up fast. There’s no shame in treating the lady in your life early if you must. Friday and Saturday shows may not offer a free flower for all the dames, but there will still be plenty of laughs. Besides Mom won’t have to do the dishes after eating at our delicious buffet. Our evening shows start at 7:30 p.m. this weekend.

Capone's Characters at Mother's Day dinner show in Orlando

The above Orlando dinner show photo features who else, but new “momma” Bunny June with Fingers and Francis Alouicous Salvatorio, Jr.; AKA “Little Pinky.” The parenthood experience was featured in the 2013 show. There were many hilarious moments in which all mothers related to during this scene. The current show (2017 anniversary show) has even more funny instances. The all-new show is faster paced and a delight for the entire family.

New Dinner Show Concept for Cirque du Soleil

A new dinner show concept is in the works which combines a Cirque du Soleil performance with a nice dinner and champagne. It will be spectacular. The only issue is you’ll have to go to Mexico to experience it!

Cirque du Soleil features 19 shows at various venues around the world. The new Vidanta Theater in Riviera Maya will be their first dinner-and-show venue. The Canadian-based company states it will be a place where “performance and culinary creativity” meet.

The 600-seat theater is being built and promises to be a very intimate building with a natural pool and the beauty of the Yucatan’s jungle. The theater is located between the Cancun International Airport and Playa del Carmen in the heart of the resort area. It is expected to be complete sometime in May.

This new dinner show concept could easily come to Cirque’s shows in the United States. The Las Vegas and Orlando shows would be a perfect location, however, the large theater size and audience could be a challenge. Since smaller shows and a drastic change in the venue layout would be required, it appears you’ll have to go to Mexico to experience this dinner show. I have my passport – let’s go!!

Currently there is no word on the new dinner show’s theme or how much tickets will cost. The Orlando Cirque du Soleil show is themed La Nouba – the story of all stories, the site of all mysteries, where dreams and nightmares sleep side by side. Attractions tickets generally run from $63 to $150. The Vegas show at the Bellagio, “O” is an aquatic masterpiece of surrealism and theatrical romance. Show tickets generally range from $109 to several hundred dollars (VIP).

If you are looking for an intimate Orlando dinner show, Capone’s Dinner & Show offers the best show in a smaller theater setting. Raving reviews keep this dinner-and-show concept alive and well after more than 20 years. The show and cuisine are not advertised as “exquisite,” but rather “good, plenty, affordable and fun.” I highly recommend it. No need for a passport, just a secret password to enter the theater. Fun!

Knights Battle Between Orlando Dinner Shows

Knights battle at a dinner show

Pirates Dinner Adventure of Orlando got a big “shiver me timbers” last week as Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament filed a lawsuit alleging that Pirates stole the concept for their new show from Medieval Times. The new show in question is called “Camelot Knights Dinner Adventure” and features similarities you might expect. What Pirates did not expect was this lawsuit which seeks lawyers fees, damages and a court order to end the show.

Similarities between the shows include the plot, the costumes, as well as menu items. They also claim the phrase used to promote the show, “a night to remember” was taken from Medieval Times’ phrase “a knight to remember.” It is also alleged that a former employee went to work for Pirates after being employed by Medieval Times and this could greatly impact the lawsuit, especially if it can be proven that this worker was hired as part of a plan to copy the show.

The new show “Camelot Knights Dinner Adventure” has received extremely poor reviews on yelp.com and multiple blogs that have posted stories about it. Most folks primarily wonder why Pirates would even attempt a theme more to the liking of Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament (or Arabian Nights Dinner Attraction for that matter).  Mentioned quite often is the wish that Pirates would stick to what they know best, and that is entertaining guests with a pirate-themed show. It makes me wonder if the show, “Treasure Tavern,” introduced in the Pirate’s Dinner Adventure entertainment complex in June 2010 (for adults only), has had similar reviews?

The contest between Orlando dinner shows has been ongoing for many years, but this is the first lawsuit filed between them (that I know of). With so many tourists visiting the area, the battle to lure as many guests to a particular dinner show will continue long after this lawsuit is decided upon. It may, however, alter how new shows at existing dinner show theaters are introduced.

Even now, as Capone’s Dinner & Show is in full preparation of their new show, you can bet it will focus on what they do best and NOT include a Camelot-themed horse and pony show! Marking their 20th year in Orlando, Capone’s will stick to a well-received, very successful and original, gangland Chicago-themed dinner show. Capone’s is not a franchise. There is only one of its kind, and it is right here in Orlando! Other Orlando dinner shows could learn a thing or two about originality. Not copy an existing show? Well blow me down!
