If you happen to be in Las Vegas and have time to attend only one of its many shows, Absinthe Las Vegas should be your number one choice.
This resident show had its premiere in 2006 as a contemporary circus but it is much more than that. It perfectly combines all the most-loved international themes — a carnival with a feeling of vaudeville and the sense of burlesque that happens to be in a circus-like tent called spiegeltent.
Apart from many performers whose gymnastic skills will take your breath away, the Absinthe Las Vegas show has three main characters. The host of the show is the Gazillionaire, a rich and slimy comedian whose role is to introduce the acts and incorporate spectators into the show. He has an assistant, Penny Pibbets, who performs a sock puppet act. Finally, there is the Green Fairy, a singer who plays the role of an exotic dancer.
The Absinthe Vegas show will amaze you with choreographies you won’t find anywhere else. The show has been immensely popular for almost ten years now, which is enough to make you believe that it’s a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle you shouldn’t miss.
