Hold on to your hats – another outrageously talented variety show will debut at the Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas this fall. The creative minds behind Absinthe and Opium in Las Vegas, Speigelworld will debut the western-themed Atomic Saloon Show beginning September 8th.
“Blazing Saddles” meets “America’s Got Talent” meets ”Westworld”. Spiegelworld will present the world premiere of Atomic Saloon Show at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Following its season in the Assembly’s Palais du Variété Spiegeltent, the fast, funny, adults-only circus-variety show will take up residency on the Las Vegas Strip in the new Kraken Music Hall inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Resort.
Could this be the wildest watering hole in town? Boozy Skunkton’s first hotel was acquired by the government as an atomic bomb test site, but, decades later, she has now returned. She has collected the “most abnormally sexy but sensationally amoral” troupe of entertainers on earth and is determined to create the greatest saloon show the world has ever known.
“When Boozy Skunkton first set eyes on the long-abandoned saloon, she knew it had the potential to become the most loved intimate venue in Vegas for drinking, dancing, dining and dueling,” said Spiegelworld Impresario Extraordinaire Ross Mollison. “We are delighted that she has asked Spiegelworld to help bring her vision to life.”
With an international cast of comic actors, variety acts, and acrobats, ATOMIC SALOON SHOW will take audiences to the Wild West as it never was. Ensuring she can oversee the day-to-day wrangling of her band of misfits, Madam Skunkton has enlisted the assistance of Spiegelworld and Britain’s leading comedy director Cal McCrystal to create the new show that’s envisioned as “Blazing Saddles” meets “America’s Got Talent” meets “Westworld.”
This will be the first time that Spiegelworld will have three productions playing concurrently on the Las Vegas Strip.
“As the world’s greatest international festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is a perfect partner for us to develop and premiere new comedy work for Las Vegas,” added Mollison.“Audiences in both Edinburgh and Vegas are in town for a short time but a good time and expect a show that bolts right out of the gate.”
Celebrated by many as “Britain’s funniest director,” Cal McCrystal is best known as the comedy director of the West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors starring James Corden as well as for his comedy direction and role in the deeply moving and hilarious movies “Paddington” and “Paddington 2.”
