Who We Are
Ann Marie Hayek is an established show Producer and the creator and founder of a successful, long running International talent agency. Ann Marie created her agency, Pure Talent, building it up from conception into multi award winning talent agency in business now for over 24 years. I have booked everything from major international singing stars, variety shows, Chinese acrobats and tribute shows to most importantly, specializing in booking the top name touring Burlesque entertainers nationwide.
Ann Marie and her husband James have been married for 24 years. They started early in their marriage producing events and showcases for all size venues across America, this lead up to producing their nightly show in Las Vegas.
To become an actual Las Vegas show producer at a major Casino on the Las Vegas strip is no easy feat. This is not something you can buy into, as it has to be earned. It requires having a proven track record of producing quality shows. This in turn showcases a history of consistent success and proves you have acquired the experience to be considered as producers of an actual show. Especially if that show is in the Entertainment Capitol of the World. This explains how Ann Marie and James Hayek came to produce, a critically acclaimed nightly show in the 750-seat theater at the Sahara Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. This was a large production show that received rave reviews from the most noteworthy critics in Las Vegas.
After producing the nightly show in Las Vegas, Ann Marie and James, decided to create the Dreamgirls Burlesque Revue to tour to the casinos, theatres and resorts across the Country. Since our touring show was originally created in Las Vegas, we wanted to keep that high-quality level of entertainment in the show. ItÕs really what you would expect to see in the Entertainment Capitol of The World but now itÕs super cool to be able to have this show right in your city or town and not have to travel all the way to Vegas to experience it! Our clients are primarily the most prestigious casinos, theatres and resorts all over the United States.
What helped to create the success of the shows that Ann Marie and James have produced, is that they recognize that each property has its own unique style. They tailor the productions to be a quality fit for the companies they work with. The HayekÕs know this business well and go above and beyond the normal expectations to produce entertaining and profitable shows, no matter where they are located.
James Hayek has an extensive background in the music, concert touring industry and live theatrical productions. He was the Director of Concert Services for Performance Magazine for many years, managed major label groups and provided sponsorship opportunities for the international tours. Together they have been producing shows for over twenty-five years in the United States and Internationally.
We believe there is an interesting story to be told; one that I bet your local TV stations, morning shows, radio talk shows and local about town newspapers would enjoy talking about and yes, we just LOVE Social Media!
Pure Talent's Dreamgirls Burlesque Revue has been touring the casinos and resorts throughout the United States for the last seven years. The show traditionaly performs to sold out crowds and has garnered great revues!
