ABSINTHE AT L.A. LIVE
VEGAS SHOW HITS L.A. FOR A LIMITED ENGAGEMENT
What happens in Vegas ain’t staying in Vegas as ABSINTHE, Sin City’s #1 Greatest Show in Las Vegas history according to Las Vegas Weekly, is coming to L.A. for a limited engagement starting Wednesday, March 22 at L.A. LIVE.
Inspired by the absinthe-drenched cabarets of late 19th century Europe, ABSINTHE, is an adult-themed cocktail of circus, comedy, burlesque and vaudeville for a 21st century audience. Guests enter the seductively intimate environment of Spiegelworld’s tent where the artists perform on a central circular stage only 9 feet in diameter. In Las Vegas, ABSINTHE has been playing to sold-out audiences at the world’s most famous casino, Caesars Palace, since 2011 and celebrates its sixth anniversary there in April.
The New York Times said, “Imagine Cirque du Soleil as channeled through The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Stage and Cinema said, “Loud, abrasive and in your face … the show wears its vulgarity like a badge of honor. The large audience whooped and hollered through the entire evening.” The Chicago Sun-Times said, “Totally off-the-wall, sexy, funny, unabashedly raunchy.” Huffington Post has said, “If you only see one show in your entire life, make it ABSINTHE. It reminded me of what’s great about Vegas.”
Las Vegas Weekly, proclaimed ABSINTHE the #1 greatest show in Las Vegas history ever, noting, “A performance of ABSINTHE is almost criminally fun. It is the domain of the Gazillionaire, the gold-toothed, foul-mouthed, lecherous dirt-bag who runs the show. For the entirety of ABSINTHE’s 90 wildly entertaining minutes, you feel like you’ve discovered something new, or stumbled onto a secret meeting of acrobats, dancers and reprobates. And the first thing you want to do after is tell everyone you know.”
Spiegelworld’s Impresario Extraordinaire Ross Mollison said, “ABSINTHE is a rare opportunity to see extreme circus acts performed in an intimate environment by some of the world’s most sexy and talented artists.”
Celebrities regularly flock to join the audience and have included Britney Spears, James Franco, Neil Patrick Harris, Rebel Wilson, DJ Steve Aoki, Olivia Newton-John, Pink, Channing Tatum, Idina Menzel, Melissa McCarthy, Vince Young, Kaley Cuoco, Ice-T and Coco, David Copperfield, Tony Hawk and more.
Tickets, starting at $49, are now on sale at Absinthela.com. The performance schedule is Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 7:30pm; Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and 9:30pm; and Sundays at 5:30 and 7:30pm.
