Las Vegas has spoken! Due to critical acclaim and popular demand, ABSINTHE’s filthy rich impresario, The Gazillionaire, has announced that Las Vegas’ “Best New Show” will return to the spotlight at the glimmering epicenter of the Las Vegas Strip, the Roman Plaza at Caesars Palace (Photo credit: Tom Donoghue).
ABSINTHE will return to Sin City late-October, where the show’s outlandish acts will continue to captivate audiences and critics alike in a newly transformed venue, infused with mystique and intrigue.
“With the ridiculous amount of money that I put into this show, having it stay here at Caesars Palace for another year isn’t such a bad idea,” said Gaz. “Besides, everyone here in Vegas loves us so much, it’d be a shame to take that away from them.”
“We are pleased and extremely proud that ABSINTHE will remain at Caesars Palace for another year,” adds Scott Zeiger, co-chief executive officer of BASE Entertainment. “ABSINTHE has truly made its mark in Las Vegas; delivering show-stopping and awe-inspiring entertainment each and every night.”
Spiegelworld Impresario, Ross Mollison said today, “Las Vegas is the perfect place for us! With ABSINTHE being so well received by both the critics and audiences alike, we felt that we needed to extend this production and make a home here at Caesars Palace.”
“In keeping with the Caesars Palace tradition of delivering high-quality, innovative entertainment experiences to the Las Vegas Strip, ABSINTHE has delighted both guests and critics alike,” said Gary Selesner, Caesars Palace president. “With the addition of ABSINTHE and some new dining venues, the Roman Plaza has become an exciting, Strip-side entertainment hub. We’re pleased the show will remain a focal point of that experience and continue to make its home at Caesars Palace.”
ABSINTHE fans can take pleasure in knowing that the foul-mouthed Gazillionaire, his raucous assistant Penny Pibbets and the cast of eccentric performers will once again take center stage to allure and hypnotize audiences with the jaw-dropping acts guests have come to know and love.
ABSINTHE will resume performances on October 21. Upon opening, guests will find a new ABSINTHE venue suitable for all seasons which will integrate the old-world charm, theater-in-the-round presentation and intimate nature that audiences have embraced.
