A new show in Las Vegas feature aerialists, contortionists, acrobats, impersonators, magicians, comedians, dancers and one French superstar. The show is named "Twisted Vegas" and will debut in early February at the Westgate hotel-casino.
Writer, director and producer Alex Goulde is one of France's most talented and celebrated stars. He has been described as the country's version of Neil Patrick Harris.
Goulde is no stranger to Las Vegas though. In fact, he has been living here for the past 3 years with his husband and son while still working in France. During that time, he has been preparing for his Las Vegas debut. He is also working on another Las Vegas show that is a magic show with no magic.
The show will also star someone who is very familiar to Las Vegas audiences -- Michael Goudeau, who was magician Lance Burton's onstage sidekick for nearly two decades at the Monte Carlo hotel-casino.
Other cast members include Sasha Pivaral, who is known for her skills with a bow and arrow and hula hoops; the Kristef Brothers, comedy acrobatic balancing duo; third-generation circus performer Ekaterina (Katya) Arnaoutova, who began her career in the Great Moscow Circus; and singer/impersonator Costic from St. Malo, France.
"Twisted Vegas" is described as fast-paced and "abundantly twisted." It is also an interactive show and guests are invited on the show's website to learn some of the choreography and punchlines before they attend the show.
Performances begin on Feb. 9 in the same room where Elvis Presley gave his most legendary performances in Las Vegas. Tickets start at $45 plus tax and fees and are on sale now at www.twisted.vegas.
