Hit New York City production “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” will premiere in Las Vegas Saturday, May 27, 2017 at Paris Las Vegas with stars Kendra Wilkinson (“Kendra on Top,” “The Girls Next Door”) and Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” ABC’s “Malibu Country,” Broadway’s “Rent”).
Written by Matt Murphy and based on the novel of the same name by Dan Anderson and Maggie Berman, the show has been acclaimed as “hysterically titillating” by TheaterMania and hailed by Broadway World as “a night of laughter that makes you feel good in all the wrong places.”
“I saw the show in New York City and was excited to be asked to join the production and debut it in Vegas,” said Wilkinson, whose starring role will be prominently featured in the forthcoming season of “Kendra on Top.” “People spend so much time covering up or hiding their sexuality. My character progresses from being a shy, passive professor to a sexually empowered woman ready to seize the world and the men in it.”
In the sex-affirmative, coming-of-age show, Wilkinson stars as Robyn, the bookish and demure host of a university authors forum. Featured author Dan Anderson, played by Rodriguez, brings Robyn out of her professorial shell by encouraging her and audience members to embrace their naughtiest instincts with the help of Stefan, her hunky stage assistant. Casting for the role of Stefan will be announced at a later date.
The 75-minute production combines comedy, charisma, and a lot of sass to create a memorable evening perfect for everyone from couples looking to spice up their routines to groups interested in a girls’ – or guys’ – night out. Performing eight shows a week in an intimate theater just off the casino floor, audience members can expect a highly interactive show that draws upon their own participation to demonstrate many of the most outrageous and hilarious techniques.
“This is ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Woman’,” said Rodriguez, whose work on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” garnered an Emmy. “I’m excited to work with Kendra and bring this refreshingly modern show to the Las Vegas Strip.”
A co-production of Adam Steck’s SPI Entertainment with Matt Murphy and Shawn Nightingale, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is an interactive engagement that takes the motto “practice makes perfect” to a whole new level. As the ultimate adults-only party, the show promises to leave audiences with intimate bedroom insight.
“The success of the show in New York City and on tour has exceeded my wildest expectations,” said Murphy. “Working with Kendra and Jai on the Las Vegas premiere is going to be such a blast. I can’t wait to see them on stage together at Paris Las Vegas.”
“My wife and I saw the show for the first time in New York City and immediately thought: Las Vegas needs this,” said Steck. “It’s fun, lighthearted, includes crowd interaction, and most importantly, it’s a bit naughty.”
“Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” will perform nightly (dark Wednesdays) at 7 p.m. with additional 11 p.m. shows Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are now on sale and start at $39 (plus taxes and fees). A VIP ticket upgrade will be available and includes a meet-and-greet and souvenir photo with the stars.
