The Other Side of Las Vegas

Posted: Jul. 16th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Las Vegas is a city with many, many faces. It's easy to think you've seen them all as a tourist, but Mark Shunock has stepped forward to speak for a side that few get to see during their brief visits. Las Vegas is known for its shimmering lights and the sights on the strip, but there's a whole community bubbling under the surface, at least according to Shunock.

It was late September when I received an offer to relocate to Las Vegas and begin work as “Lonny” in “Rock of Ages.” I’d spent many years in New York and Los Angeles finding work where I could and battling on in this crazy entertainment business, and I welcomed the opportunity for a new adventure here in Sin City. I loved the show and jumped at the chance to be a part of something that I knew would be a hit on the Strip.
