Who's Like David Cassidy?

01/28/1999 at 12:00 AM EST

David Cassidy and Las Vegas' Rio Suite Hotel & Casino announced Wednesday that the former teen idol will open in a new show at the resort in January. "I will do a hybrid Broadway musical," Cassidy said. "It will have a story and it will appeal to a large demographic audience." Cassidy, still best known for starring on the '70s TV show "The Partridge Family," moved to Vegas three years ago to headline the $75 million "EFX" stage spectacular at the MGM Grand. (He left that show in December.) He said his new show "will give me an opportunity to play a character much like myself. I will not be playing David Cassidy. I will be playing a character with a lot of similarities.''
