When you first hear the name Absinthe, what comes to mind? Is it the extremely powerful, and once banned, emerald spirit also known as the green fairy? If so, you can’t yet have seen the new hit show of the same name already heralded as one of the best shows in Vegas...
The New York Times described Absinthe Las Vegas as: "Imagine Cirque du Soleil as channeled through Rocky Horror Picture Show and painted by George Grosz. A blend of skill, erotic innuendo and zaniness. The memorable momens make a jaded audience literally gasp."
And Reality Star Angel Porrino who debuted in Absinthe in April as the weather girl reportedly said, “I'm super stoked to be a part of ABSINTHE! The whole show is totally my style...original, weird, random, amazing and the list goes on.”
Intrigued? Our friend Shaun Moggan went along and confirmed that it's absolutely one of the best shows in Vegas. Here’s what he had to say about it:
Absinthe Las Vegas Show’s Review by Shaun Moggan
“This relatively new show is said to have taken Vegas by storm. The show takes place in a circus tent outside of Caesars Palace Casino.
On entering the tent I felt as if I had been transported back to a Victorian English theatre – lots of red velvet, pictures, I seem to recall some antlers on the wall but perhaps that was the house special cocktails taking effect.
The show itself was a mis-mash of top notch trapeze artists, circus performers and comedic talent. Death defying acrobatic feats, scantily clad performers (male and female) and very adult humour from the circus host and his female side kick. This potent cocktail of a show lived up to its name and if you have an open mind this one-off theatre experience is a Vegas must see!”
Even though it's an award-winning show there are still discounts and special offers
available. Check out rates at BestofVegas.
