Amid chatter about the seemingly unsteady future of “Vegas Nocturne” at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, an online report posted today says the show is effectively being put to sleep.
The same story, posted on the website Vital Vegas (managed by onetime Caesars Entertainment social-media specialist Scott Roeben) said the show might surface at the soon-to-open SLS.
There has been no confirmation of, or comment about, either report from Spiegelworld founder Ross Mollison (who also produces “Vegas Nocturne”). SLS spokeswoman Kate Whiteley said the company has no comment on the rumors. Mollison has not returned text or phone messages asking for comment about the show’s future.
SLS is set to open Aug. 23. There are no plans for a live-performance venue at SLS aside from the nightclub Life, where DJ Erick Morillo is set to perform opening weekend.
Nonetheless, the report does fall in line with a heavy measure of speculation over the weekend about the future of “Vegas Nocturne” at the entertainment, bar and restaurant enclave Rose. Rabbit. Lie.
SLS surfaced as a possible future venue for the show Sunday afternoon, as did Drai’s After Hours at the Cromwell and a tented venue similar to “Absinthe’s” venue at an undisclosed location. “Absinthe” outside Caesars Palace also is a Spiegelworld production.
None of this talk has been formally addressed, and while rumors of Las Vegas shows closing are commonplace (and frequently inaccurate), circumstantial evidence does give pause for concern about “Vegas Nocturne.”
The show was to celebrate its 100th show (and 300th “canto”) this week with a cast party tonight at Marquee and a show coinciding with the benchmark Wednesday night.
But, today, the cast party was canceled for “unforeseen circumstances,” as a Spiegelworld spokesman said. An email asking about the status of Wednesday’s show has gone unreturned.
A show laden with impressive and uniquely talented performers, “Vegas Nocturne” has reportedly been suffering very soft numbers at the box office.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dares to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to fine art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature style is helping to pave its own path on the Las Vegas Strip.
Upon entering the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Just beyond that, you’ll find all your favorite casino games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.
The Cosmopolitan’s rooms standout as the resort’s most unique feature. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 rooms have 6-foot deep terraces that span the length of the room, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities include soaking tubs, kitchenettes and quirky accessories like artsy coffee table books.
The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll find at other Strip resorts, either. All of The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, top-notch sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and the freshest fish flown in from the Mediterranean daily at Estiatorio Milos.
Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is the place to find the party at The Cosmopolitan. The venue is a dayclub/nightclub, complete with a pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with three different vibes inside.
If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is encased in 2 million dripping crystals.
