Hailed by “Las Vegas Sun” as the most inventive and daring show to open on the Strip in years, Absinthe combines cabaret and acrobatics in this provocative variety show. Once you enter the white tent, you’re transported to a whole different world.
Absinthe at Caesars Palace is the fantastical blend of carnival and spectacle, featuring wild, outlandish acts on an intimate, circular stage. And talk about a close-up: the theater is designed to truly transport you in the middle of the circus action, so you can get quite up close and personal with the performers.
Though this racy, adults-only show is downright hilarious, it’s definitely not for timid audiences. It has all the elements of an R-rated movie, but with more glam and allure.
For a fun, imaginative evening, the performances amaze and inspire. The eccentric cast members evoke thrills and chills, all while executing amazing feats of virtuosity, strength, balance and danger. One minute you’re witnessing a stylish, sexy burlesque number, the next you’re seeing aerialists performing depth-defying stunts. Hosted by the foul-mouthed Gazillionaire and his wild assistant Penny Pibbets, Absinthe delivers jaw-dropping acts and raunchy comedy fun mixed with old world burlesque.
