Absinthe is a critically adored show like nothing else on The Las Vegas Strip, a surreal “acro-cabaret variety show” in the Spiegeltent, an intimate and colorful old-world European style Carnival tent located in front of Caesars Palace. Adored by audiences and critics alike, Absinthe was hailed upon its release as the best new show on The Strip by both Vegas SEVEN Magazine and Las Vegas Weekly.
The wildly imaginative show is emceed by your eccentric (and foul mouthed) host, The Gazzilionaire, and his assistant Penny Pibbets, who keep things moving with their outrageous and raunchy sense of humor. The cast of quirky characters, including the beautiful Green Fairy, a roller skating team, tight rope walkers, aerialists, and more, all who will take your breath away as they perform a thrilling mix of burlesque, feats of strength, acrobatics, and death-defying stunts.
The entire show is performed in the round, under a gorgeous velvet and brocade tent that gives the entire show a magical carnival atmosphere. Performers get up close and personal to every member of the audience in the stunning and intimate 600 seat venue, which is covered in mirrors and stained glass.
Absinthe was a massive critical and commercial success during its run in Manhattan, when The New York Times described it as “Cirque Du Soleil as channeled through Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Now the mixture of sensual burlesque, breath taking acrobatics, and gut busting comedy has found the perfect home on The Strip, where its surreal atmosphere of unpredictable excess fits in perfectly. Like the exotic green beverage the adult’s only spectacle is named after, Absinthe is a surreal trip unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
