“I HAVE NEVER NEEDED A SHOT OF ABSINTHE MORE IN MY LIFE!”
-Ross Mollison, Spiegelworld’s Impresario Extraordinaire
Ranked “The #1 Greatest Show in Las Vegas History,” ABSINTHE® by Spiegelworld™will return to its center-Strip stage at Caesars Palace on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Tickets for performances Wednesday through Sunday at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. are on sale now at Spiegelworld.com.
With the safety and comfort of its audiences, performers, and staff at the forefront, Spiegelworld has implemented strict safety protocols which meet or exceed government requirements for minimising the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Notably, guests can expect a new cabaret-style seating format inside the spiegeltent, which will allow parties of two to five to reserve tables positioned no less than six feet apart, while still feeling close to the action.
“ABSINTHE is uniquely positioned to allow us to present the same raunchy, hilarious show in a way that should give everybody involved complete confidence to laugh, cheer, and watch in wonder,” said Spiegelworld Impresario Extraordinaire Ross Mollison. “Although we’ve reduced the 660-capacity seating to just 153 seats at appropriately distanced cabaret tables, we are still able retain the mind-blowing atmosphere of the spiegeltent. As guests arrive for pre-show drinks, our outdoor Green Fairy Garden with its spectacular Absinthe Electric Oak™ will allow for more social distancing than likely any theater foyer in the world. We can’t wait to welcome audiences back for a much-needed shot of ABSINTHE.”
In addition to a new seating configuration, ABSINTHE’s wondrous spiegeltent will be cleaned and sanitized before and after every performance, a new air purification system has been installed, guests will be screened on entry with non-contact temperature testing, masks will be mandatory for all, and table service will be provided during the show to avoid the need for guests to line-up at the bar for drinks.
“I have been so proud of the entire Spiegelworld family,” Mollison added. “They have faced the past seven months with good humour and support for each other. The carefully managed re-opening of Las Vegas has been attracting more and more visitors every week, and we are delighted that the Governor of Nevada and Gaming Control Board have now approved our plans to bring live entertainment back safely. We are ready for ABSINTHE to be one of the first shows to return in Las Vegas, and we’ll be making announcements about the return of our shows OPIUM and ATOMIC SALOON SHOW very soon.”
“The #1 Greatest Show in Las Vegas History” as ranked by Las Vegas Weekly, ABSINTHE will reopen at Caesars Palace onWednesday, Oct. 28, with shows playing Wednesday through Sunday at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Spiegelworld.com.
LAS VEGAS’ FAVORITE MAGIC DRAGON RETURNS IN “PIFF THE MAGIC DRAGON: TOO SOON?”
Shows at Flamingo Las Vegas begin Thursday, Oct. 29
After seven months of sold-out virtual shows, Piff the Magic Dragon will be back for the real thing at Flamingo Las Vegas beginning Thursday, Oct. 29.
Piff has performed at the conveniently named “Piff the Magic Dragon Theatre” for the past five years, accompanied by his Las Vegas Showgirl partner Jade Simone and magic dog Mr. Piffles. All three are thrilled to be coming back to the Flamingo, this time in the larger Flamingo Showroom and will be able to accommodate an audience of 250 guests per show or less.
"This has been a tough time for all the great performers in Las Vegas,” says Piff, “Not to mention the audiences and the city itself. We’re going to follow applicable guidelines and take the recommended precautions, and if we can give people a good time and they leave a little bit happier than they arrived then I think it’ll be worth it. Also, the dog's run up a huge gambling debt during lockdown so I have bills to pay.”
Piff has been busy the past few months working on brand new material that he will be unveiling alongside a selection of his favorite tricks as well as welcoming a fellow Las Vegas headliner as his special guest each night.
Piff will perform Thursday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. beginning Thursday, Oct. 29. Tickets go on sale Friday, Oct. 23 at 10 a.m. PT at ticketmaster.com.
