PEREZ HILTON -Breaking The Rules (and making some new ones) at Chippendales

The nation’s foremost social media “influencer” manages to make the outlandish seem easy in his guest-hosting stint… I was one of many who were shocked when Chippendales announced notoriously-outspoken Perez Hilton as their next celebrity host. After all, the self-proclaimed “Queen Of All Media” was hardly forged from the same slabs of beef as previous … Continue reading “PEREZ HILTON -Breaking The Rules (and making some new ones) at Chippendales”

Chippendales: Shirtless Angels of Charity

Legendary sexy dancers earn their wings with collars and cuffs… The Chippendales show at Rio Las Vegas is one of my favorite productions.

Attendance seemed to … Continue reading “AFAN Black & White Party Lights Up The Joint Once More”

‘Aussie Heat’ Fires Up the Strip

The “other” Down-Under male revue is faster/hotter/better than you’d ever expect… In the world of sexy productions, male revues get very little respect. Audiences unfamiliar with these productions may have had their perceptions tarnished by cheesy appearances on 90’s daytime talk shows. But today’s male revues are polished, contemporary and well-mounted stage productions. And they’re … Continue reading “‘Aussie Heat’ Fires Up the Strip”

Hanging By A Thread – Sin City’s Huge Entertainment Dilemma

Fuerza Bruta’s shocking failure suggests a troubling future for large-scale productions…. Several years ago I penned a two-parter for Vegas Chatter entitled “Four Walls and a Dream”. In it I explored the difficulties involved in launching a new show in today’s corporation-run Vegas. Gone are the days when casinos supported their own entertainment. It’s up … Continue reading “Hanging By A Thread – Sin City’s Huge Entertainment Dilemma”

Being Gay at a 2019 Male Revue

Guest author Ryan Topping gives us another perspective on a topical subject… I’ve had a couple of guest authors since the beginning of this site, but this is the first time that someone has written a companion piece to one of my originals.

Which one ones to rush to…and a few to steer clear of… Earlier this week I put the spotlight on a few of the more spectacular resident productions on the Strip (read here).

These little guys must … Continue reading “Vegas 2018 – Best of the Best, Worst of the Worst in Smaller Shows”

Thunder From Down Under: Time To Toss Out This Outback Throwback

Long-running male revue needs to desperately up its game plan… Maybe it’s just an off-season phenomenon. Perhaps it’s the temporary venue being utilized during their theater renovation. But more likely, being covered in dust has more to do with neglect than construction debris. Whatever the reason, Excalibur’s THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER is a relic in … Continue reading “Thunder From Down Under: Time To Toss Out This Outback Throwback”
