Only You features the talented group of singers performing splendid renditions of such classic hits as “The Great Pretender”, “What Becomes of a Broken Heart” and the title song “Only You” along with personal memories. “This is a resurrection of soulful music from some of the best singers in Vegas and a tribute to the original dinner show,” said Derek David, 40-year member of the Platters.   Accompanying the performers is pianist Paul Badia.

The choreography is designed by the legendary Papote Varet. Show room and costume design is provided by Executive Producer Baroness Rita Bliss.
