“Absinthe” impresario producer Ross Mollison tells me that his new “Never Sleep Alone” has had unbelievable success with its love Dr. Alex Schiller this week. Dr. Alex has a special Valentine’s Day show right after midnight Saturday under the “Absinthe” tent at Caesars.
Ross said he’s fielded calls from entertainment execs at 12 Strip hotels all wanting to present the outrageous sex-advice hookup show when it returns here after its upcoming world tour starting next weekend in Edinburgh.
“Never Sleep Alone’s” technical director commented after Wednesday’s show: “For the first time since we began doing ‘Never Sleep Alone,’ last night’s show caused something of a panic in the audience once they started realizing what would be expected of them.
“Numerous people started high-tailing it for the shadowy corners of the tent where Alex Schiller wouldn’t be able to find them (or so they thought). For several minutes, this terrified scattering was the show.
“I have to say we couldn’t have asked for better publicity in terms of being a hot new thing on the Strip. The crowd was genuinely scandalized.
“It’s only because of the love doctor’s talent that we get to count this as a victory because once the uproar subsided, she took control of the crowd and really drove it home. Inhibitions were shed, strangers asked each other to dance, couples were formed, books were sold, and much alcohol was consumed!”

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
