MGM National Harbor celebrates successful grand opening

The Theater at MGM National Harbor opened last night at the newest resort destination in the Capital Region with a sold-out performance by Boyz II Men, the four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B vocal group.

"The atmosphere and vibe inside The Theater last night was amazing," said Bill Boasberg, general manager of MGM National Harbor. "We can't thank Boyz II Men enough for a tremendous show and partnership over the years. The fans were on their feet the entire evening and dancing to every song. We have a sensational entertainment lineup scheduled in the weeks ahead and anticipate more exciting evenings at The Theater."

Opening day began with a behind-the-scenes peek at the sound check with Boyz II Men for Theater employees. Boasberg welcomed the audience and introduced them to the Boyz II Men principles, baritone Nathan Morris, tenors Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman, with a celebratory mocktail toast created specially for the occasion.

Fitting of the trio known for their romantic melodies and smooth vocals, a 12-foot-long ribbon was carefully hand-crafted out of red roses and ceremoniously cut by Boasberg and Boyz II Men, kicking off the evening and launching The Theater's operation.

Later in the evening, 3,000 guests filled The Theater and immediately rose to their feet as the curtains drew across the stage. The fans quickly erupted with applause for the first entertainers to step on stage.

The show at The Theater at MGM National Harbor was highlighted by the group's biggest hits including "Motownphilly," "I'll Make Love To You," "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" and "End of the Road" mixed with long-lasting Motown classics as well as selections from their newest album, Collide.
