Tuner opens in Sin City

LAS VEGAS — Broadway stars mingled with Sin City headliners as “Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular” preemed at the Venetian Resort’s glitzy new $40 million theater Saturday.

Carol Burnett, attending “Phantom” in support of Prince, offered her take on the classic show, “I like the romance and the scariness.”
