See Absinthe, the adult cocktail of circus, comedy, burlesque and vaudeville at L.A. Live.
Inspired by the cabarets of late 19th century Europe, Absinthe is billed as an adult cocktail of circus, comedy, burlesque and vaudeville for a 21st century audience. The show, which has been playing to sold-out audiences at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas since 2011, runs March 22-April 23 in the intimate Spiegelworld Tent at L.A. Live. “Imagine Cirque du Soleil as channeled through the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show,’ ” wrote The New York Times. “Totally off-the-wall, sexy, funny, unabashedly raunchy,” penned the Chicago Sun-Times. Las Vegas Weekly named it the No. 1 greatest show in Las Vegas history, noting that viewers feel as if they have “stumbled onto a secret meeting of acrobats, dancers and reprobates” and calling it “almost criminally fun.” The artists perform on a central circular stage 9 feet in diameter.
