Adam Steck is an award-winning theatrical producer known for flawlessly executing highly innovative and wildly popular shows in Las Vegas and beyond. As the Founder and CEO of SPI Entertainment, Steck uses his entrepreneurial instincts and keen ability to create and produce smash hits to sold-out crowds

A natural born visionary with an innate talent for creating and promoting dynamic productions, Steck has over 25 years of experience in the entertainment industry. He is the driving force behind dozens of buzzed-about shows such as Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth, Human Nature: Jukebox, Australia’s Thunder from Down Under, Boyz II Men, Louie Larger Than Life, The Australian Bee Gees Show, and more.

Steck leverages his ability to discover breakout programming and talent with his passion for show business – a combination that has proven successful throughout his career. One of Steck’s biggest hits includes the popular Las Vegas attraction and internationally acclaimed male revue, Australia’s Thunder From Down Under.

As co-owner and producer, Steck brought the fully interactive show to the Strip over 15 years ago and it’s still going strong. With 800,000 people annually watching Australia’s hottest export on the Vegas stage, Thunder From Down Under is the longest running production in the history of Las Vegas, and the highest-grossing male revue in the world. Steck is highly regarded as paving the way in this new genre of entertainment.

Steck often creates and produces original shows such as Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth – Live on Stage. The one-man show came to fruition when Steck approached the legendary boxer with his idea. Undisputed Truth thrilled audiences with Tyson’s intimate and captivating vignettes from his life and received worldwide praise.

Spike Lee approached the team and directed a version of Undisputed Truth for Broadway, making it the first show in Las Vegas history to be taken straight from the Strip to Broadway. Undisputed Truth also eventually toured around the United States, and was also adapted for Fox Sports.

Steck continues to reinvent the Las Vegas entertainment scene introducing new shows such as Rocktellz & Cocktails, a live interactive musical concept, featuring Meat Loaf and The Jacksons. Throughout his career, Steck has worked with countless celebrities on SPI Entertainment’s nationally acclaimed shows including personalities such as Liza Minelli, Bob Dylan, Tina Turner and more.

Steck was named as one of Vegas’ most interesting and inventive people in the entertainment world by the Las Vegas Sun, and Variety has dubbed Steck as one of Las Vegas’ most influential decision-makers. Steck received the Leadership Award by the Nevada Arts Advocates in 2013. Not to rest on his laurels, Steck is an impresario at heart who is constantly developing new show concepts and is currently developing plans to own and operate live entertainment venues.
