This is terrific news, as I predicted a long time ago when this particular show opened that it would be a big hit in our Little Village. Well, gang, leave your inhibitions at the door . . . at Mandalay Bay that is! Vegas synergies have aligned and for one-night only, a Strip preview of the much talked about Las Vegas Burlesque revue will hit the House of Blues Las Vegas inside Mandalay Resort and Casino (3950 S. Las Vegas Blvd).
The special performance is set for Friday, Dec. 11th at 8 p.m. JRR Enterprises presents, Jennifer Romas’ “Sexxy the Show,” which promises to take audiences through a journey of sensual, wild fun, and enticing vignettes that explore some of the top ten sexual dreams in an experience that blends music, dance, acrobatics and athleticism of beautiful, talented starlets. The show will bring its sexually-charged energy, erotic hopes and desires, and imaginative naughtiness to the longtime home of major stars including resident artist, Carlos Santana. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for a primetime curtain call at 8 p.m.
Creator, producer and choreographer Jennifer Romas, named “Best Burlesque Choreographer in 2015” by Vegas Seven’s “Best of City” made the following comment upon signing the one-day contract: “Sexxy will have some new twists, a few surprises and a lot more Sexxy for it’s one night special performance on the world famous Las Vegas Strip. We’re pulling out all stops for this show.” Romas added, “Sexxy will arouse a standing ovation in one way…or another! It’s sexy, sassy, and classy with a bit of an edge, and it’s sure to please everyone. My cast is amazing…they are brilliant and ‘Sexxy’ in their own right. It’s a high-energy show yet interactive with an intimacy that’s fun for adult men and women alike. We are so excited to rock the house on the legendary House of Blues stage.”
Sexxy the Show opened in January 2015 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino Cabaret, where it currently resides Tuesdays through Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. “I had no idea the show would take off as successfully as it has,” the brunette bombshell said. “With huge support from David Siegel, Mark Waltrip, Paragon Gaming and Red Mercury Entertainment, Sexxy is now about to celebrate its one year anniversary at Westgate early in the New Year.”
As Romas prepares for Sexxy on the Strip, she is quick to point out that thousands of rodeo fans will be in town for the 2015 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo when her show performs at the House of Blues.
“I am so very grateful to all the parties involved that have made this happen,” she added. “This town has some amazing people. I feel so blessed. It’s an opportunity for us to build and brand the show on a national level while keeping my home base at the Westgate. It’s an opportunity several entertainers have taken with a strip preview prior to national exposure. We would love to have a second touring show in other cities and countries!”
Not only has Romas established herself as a top-notch producer/chirographer, the weekend will also be her birthday. “What a way to close out NFR and celebrate my birthday weekend don't you think?” she said with a smile.
