BWW Feature: DITA VON TEESE AND THE COPPER COUPE  at House Of Blues Las Vegas

Sexy and sizzling Dita Von Teese is bringing her new striptease spectacle "Dita Von Teese and the Copper Coupe" to the House of Blues Las Vegas June 28. Partnering with Absolut Elyx, Von Teese will be performing stunning new acts infused with glimmering copper elements, inspired by Absolut Elyx and its unique copper distilling process for the luxury vodka.

"This is my third full-length review, and I really like staying with the variety and burlesque show format," she told BroadwayWorld.com. "I have my favorite performers from all over the world who are part of my show." Entertainers come from Australia and Poland as well as Puerto Rico, Texas, New York, and Illinois.

The acts will incorporate favorite acts that are transformed. "One of my favorite performers from the martini glass act will use my carousel, which is my next biggest prop after creating my martini glass," she said.

As Von Teese explained, Absolut Elyx is known for its beautiful, bright, glimmering copper imagery and she is ready to pay homage to it. She found a set piece that had been in storage for over 15 years and decided to dip it into copper. She is excited about performing that act which is a tribute to burlesque icon Sally Rand's bubble act. Von Teese also performed the bubble act when she first began, but this is new rendition with its added elements in an extravagant level.

She has added new music in the show and works closely with her musical director to develop that burlesque touch in the soundtrack. "One of my favorite things to do is create new music."

The famous martini glass act is also reinvented and transformed but remains an integral part of her performance. Von Teese raises the bar with her innovation and creativity with over 45 ways to perform the act while always producing more.

She recently released an album with French artist Sébastien Tellier even though Von Teese is not a singer. As a big fan of Tellier, she incorporated one of the remixes on the release into the current show. Set in contemporary times as the 1940s meets 2018, it is also a tribute to one of her favorite photographers, John Lilley.

"The show is always so much fun, and I am always happy to bring it back to Vegas." She also aspires to sign for a residency show in Sin City. However, after her Vegas appearance, Von Teese is touring in Europe, which it has been one of her goals for 10 years. "I have been working to find the right people, and now that it is set, this is a big career moment for me."
