The Gazillionaire and his cast of eccentrics are thrilled to welcome Las Vegas starlet Angel Porrino to the cast of ABSINTHE, the new show at Caesars Palace that is being hailed by critics as the best new show to hit the Strip in years (Photo credit: Barry Fontenot).
After a memorable audition on the season finale of “Holly’s World,” Porrino was cast in the unique show and will be featured as The Weather Girl performing an exotic routine with (and in) a weather balloon. Her first performance is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19.
“I needed a reality star to helm my show, and I thought Angel would look better in a bikini than The Situation,” said The Gazillionaire.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Angel Porrino currently co-stars in “Holly’s World” on E! and most recently filled in for best friend Holly Madison as “Bo Peep” in the Strip’s sexiest show, PEEPSHOW. Angel is a highly-trained dancer whose immediate plans are to succeed in ventures that are somewhat uncharacteristic of a reality television star all while juggling a busy social schedule and balancing life as a single mom to two-year old Roman.
“I’m super stoked to be a part of ABSINTHE! The whole show is totally my style…original, weird, random, amazing and the list goes on,” said Porrino. “The cast is wonderful and this opportunity is such a blessing for me. I can’t wait to start.”
An imaginative show in a unique venue, ABSINTHE is the crown jewel of the Spiegelworld experience, an adult carnival that will transform the Roman Plaza in front of Caesars Palace into an entertainment playground. As the sun sets and the vibrant energy of The Strip sets in, Spiegelworld provides a retreat from reality. It allows party-goers to trip through a captivating maze of tents and early 20th Century European décor housing an adult carnival, complete with a secret speakeasy, raucous beer garden and mischievous drinking games including “Flip Stein” and “Dom Pong.” As nightfall approaches, this enchanting world opens to an intimate setting for all ABSINTHE performances, which take place in the masterful centerpiece Spiegeltent, a heritage wooden show tent from Europe opulently decorated with mirrors, stained glass and velvet. Audience members are immersed in an intimate emporium where all of the wild and outlandish acts of ABSINTHE unfold in a theatre-in-the-round presentation.
ABSINTHE is a surreal experience for all adults. Audiences are treated to a night of imagination and excess with performances that amaze and inspire. The cast of eccentrics evoke thrills and chills as they perform amazing feats of virtuosity within mere feet of the audience surrounding the intimate stage. ABSINTHE takes audience members back to a place where the raw energy, talent and sensuality of performers from around the world tempt every sense imaginable. ABSINTHE, premiered Strip-side at the Roman Plaza at Caesars Palace to rave reviews on April 1. This new show is produced by internationally renowned Spiegelworld, BASE Entertainment and Jess Ravich.
Critics and fans alike find ABSINTHE a unique one-of-a-kind experience.
