”What do you think about me moving out here?” The end of act one ends with that question. After Ace Rothstein spent the whole first act setting up the Tangiers to his liking, his friend from “back home” Nicky Santoro wants apart of the action.
After a medley of songs and scenes showing how the hero was able to gain comfortability in Las Vegas, the director accents the end of act one by lowering the music so the audience can hear Nicky’s question.
