Melbourne Season of ABSINTHE extended to May 17
The Melbourne season of the hit Las Vegas show ABSINTHE, which is currently playing under ‘the spiegeltent’ on the rooftop at Crown Casino, has been extended until May 17 2015.
The Gazillionaire said today “The season extension has nothing to do with the show’s unrivalled popularity or the rave reviews. The male acrobats in my horny troupe from Poland, Belarus and Ukraine actually pleaded with me to bring the show to Melbourne so that they could each find their own real housewife of Melbourne. Marrying them off would certainly help with some of the immigration visa issues we’ve been having. And as none of the poor lads have been successful in finding a Melbourne girlfriend yet, I have agreed to keep the show here a little longer if they promise to show even more flesh on stage.”
Since opening in Melbourne in March, ABSINTHE has been hailed by audiences and critics alike. The Australian said, “ABSINTHE is an extraordinarily polished, dynamic, bullet-train of a show … There are the most extraordinary bodies doing the most extraordinary things”.
Australian Stage commented, “The close proximity to the performers means you get to see every muscle and hear every breath. This is a terrific production and another triumph for the Spiegelworld team.” While the Herald Sun said, “ABSINTHE still the rudest circus to hit town… performers are top notch.”
ABSINTHE is hosted by the filthy rich and just plain filthy Gazillionaire and his loyal assistant Penny Pibbets who have become two of the most acclaimed and subversive comedy forces in Las Vegas in recent years.
Inspired by the absinthe-drenched cabarets of late 19th century Europe, ABSINTHE is an adult-themed cocktail of circus, comedy, burlesque and vaudeville for a 21st century audience. In Las Vegas, the show has been playing to sold-out audiences at the world’s most famous casino, Caesars Palace, since 2011 and celebrated its fourth anniversary this month.
Tickets for the three new and final weeks of shows in May are on sale now through www.Ticketek.com.au.
Following the Melbourne season, ABSINTHE will travel to Brisbane, Perth and Sydney with other dates to be announced.
