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.
