'Dancing' alums Melanie Brown, Kelly Monaco to star in Vegas show
UPI News Service, 11/19/2008
Former "Dancing with the Stars" contestants Melanie Brown and Kelly Monaco have agreed to headline a modern burlesque show in Las Vegas, Base Entertainment said.
Preview performances of "Peepshow" -- which was conceived, directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell and produced by Base -- are to begin March 30 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
"Peepshow" is described in a synopsis as "a highly stylized, full-throttle production show that combines sexy striptease and celebrity with high-level production values and a dash of passion."
"'Peepshow' has been a dream of mine for a long time and now that dream is coming true," Mitchell said in a statement. "We have gathered 20 of the sexiest dancers from film, video, and Broadway to bring a truly American form of entertainment back to the strip. The art of the tease, mixed with humor, razzle-dazzle, and today's sexy music, with 'Peepshow' these stunning dancers will use their bodies to tell a story."
The plan is to feature celebrities in the show for multiple month engagements, the producers said.
Brown is best known as a member of the former pop group Spice Girls. Monaco is a longtime cast member of "General Hospital."
