Strut & Fret presents BLANC de BLANC celebrates grand opening at SAHARA Las Vegas, Wednesday, Sept. 4

 

Champagne flowed at SAHARA Las Vegas on Wednesday, Sept. 4, when international cabaret sensation BLANC de BLANC celebrated its grand opening with a VIP red carpet affair. The acclaimed production, which features high-flying aerial stunts, serious booty and one fine French hunk, made its debut inside the recently renamed BLANC de BLANC Theatre with a champagne soiree attended by several Las Vegas entertainers.

Among those in attendance were Anthony Cools, Aussie Heat, David Goldrake, Eric Jordan Young, Gerry McCambridge, Jennifer Romas, Kate Shelor and Marc Savard, Melody Sweets, Ricardo Laguna, Sabina Kelley, X Burlesque, Zowie Bowie, and performers from FANTASY and Thunder From Down Under, who were seated in the production’s exclusive hot tub seats.

BLANC de BLANC is the Las Vegas debut of Strut & Fret Production House, one of Australia’s preeminent theatre and major events companies. The award-winning production, which has sold out the Sydney Opera House, London’s West End, the Brisbane Festival and the Adelaide Festival, plunges audiences into a world of overflowing champagne bottles, sparkles and glamour, leaving every spectator breathless with delight.

Devised by an electric creative team, BLANC de BLANC was conceived and directed by Scott Maidment (cabaret sensations LIMBO, Cantina, Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour), choreographed by Kevin Maher (choreographer for Justin Bieber, Britney Spears and Madonna), with costumes by James Browne (costume design for musicals Cabaret, Ghost and Xanadu), lighting and set design by Philip Gladwell (Magic Mike Live, The Exorcist), and a thumping soundtrack from Danish electronic artist Kenneth Bager.

BLANC de BLANC performs Thursdays through Mondays (dark Tuesdays/Wednesdays) at 7 p.m. inside the BLANC de BLANC Theatre. Tickets range in price from $49 to $129 (Hot Tub tickets are priced for groups) and are on sale now at saharalasvegas.com.

International pin up model, professionally trained dancer and celebrity judge on Oxygen Network’s “Best Ink” Sabina Kelley will join the cast of Stratosphere’s original production show PIN UP™ for six special performances in late July 2014, when starlet and 2011 PLAYBOY Playmate of the Year® Claire Sinclair is at Comic-Con in San Diego promoting her comic book, Wondrous:  The Adventures of Claire Sinclair.

“Sabina is the perfect guest star for PIN UP,” said Sinclair.  “With her gorgeous tattoos and striking platinum-blonde hair, she will bring a rockabilly edge to the show that I know all of our PIN UP fans will adore.”

Kelley will guest star in PIN UP during Sinclair’s absence Thursday, July 24, 2014 through Thursday, July 31, 2014.  (PIN UP is dark Tuesdays & Wednesdays.)

 

“I am so grateful to my good friend Claire and the Stratosphere for the opportunity to appear in PIN UP,” said Kelley, who performed as a showgirl in the classic Las Vegas show “Jubilee!” for two years. “I absolutely love the sexy, flirty and fun way this talented cast and crew has brought the iconic pin up girl calendar to life.”

Kelley has graced dozens of magazine covers, and appeared in numerous television shows, music videos and calendars.  Most recently, she was celebrity judge on the Oxygen TV series “Best Ink” for three seasons and hosted the online series “Best Ink Redemption.”  

Kelley owns and operates Bombshell Tattoo Removal, a laser tattoo removal business located in Carey Hart’s tattoo shop, Hart and Huntington, and is an active member of the pitbull rescue “Pinups for Pitbulls.”  Because of her involvement with the nonprofit, a portion of ticket sale proceeds from Kelley’s limited engagement will be donated to “Pinups for Pitbulls” by Stratosphere on her behalf.

“We are happy to support an organization that aims to educate the public about the history and temperament of these dogs, and look forward to Kelley’s performances in PIN UP,” said Matthew Mascali, VP of Entertainment and Food & Beverage at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. 

Kelley will be joined on stage by PIN UP singer Lisa Marie Smith who provides powerhouse vocals, and a swingin’ six-piece band led by trumpeter David Perrico. An impressive cast of gorgeous gal dancers, along with hunky guy dancer Ryan Kelsey, create a fast-paced, high-energy original show.  PIN UP was recently named “Best Showgirls” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal Best of Las Vegas Poll.
