The Cocktail Cabaret, the Strip’s newest vintage Vegas Broadway-Cabaret-style live music revue, at Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace.
LAS VEGAS (Nov. 7, 2017) – Las Vegas tourists and locals will be immersed in classic vintage Vegas with the debut of “The Cocktail Cabaret,” a new live musical show opening on Thursday, Nov. 30 at the famed Cleopatra’s Barge in Caesars Palace.
“The Cocktail Cabaret” will be the first show on the Las Vegas Strip created and produced by PK Entertainment, a Las Vegas-based entertainment company founded by powerhouse musical team Keith Thompson (“Jersey Boys,” “Idaho! The Comedy-Musical” and “The Composers Showcase” at The Smith Center) and Philip Fortenberry, a critically acclaimed pianist with multiple Broadway credits and headliner who was also the Liberace hand/body double in HBO’s biopic, “Behind the Candelabra.”
“The Cocktail Cabaret” is an upbeat, stylish, intimate musical cabaret-style revue reminiscent of vintage Vegas designed to enhance the cocktail hour experience as a prelude to dinner, the theatre, special event or fun night on the town. With seating for 140 in Cleopatra’s Barge, this 70-minute show will feature a combination of live original music and well-known stylized and re-imagined modern standards.
Four of the best and most exciting musical performers in Las Vegas, many with numerous Broadway credits and growing local, national and international fan bases, will perform a variety of songs including such hits as “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “Viva Las Vegas,” “Diamonds Are Forever,” “That’s Life,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” a cocktail medley, a tribute to the blues and many more.
The stellar talent set to perform in “The Cocktail Cabaret” will include Broadway veterans Niki Scalera (“Hairspray,” “Tarzan,” “Footloose”) and Eric Jordan Young (“Rock of Ages,” “Vegas! The Show,” “Ragtime,” “CHICAGO,” “Seussical the Musical,” “Look of Love,” “Dreamgirls”), along with rising multilingual classical/pop cross-over vocalist Daniel Emmet who has commanded stages from The Staples Center in Los Angeles to the Palais Todesco in Vienna, and also Maren Wade (“America’s Got Talent,” “Confessions of a Showgirl,” “Pin Up,” “50 SHADES! THE PARODY”).
The singers will be joined on stage by a four-piece band led by renowned concert pianist Fortenberry, whose career has taken him to concert stages from Lincoln Center to Carnegie Hall, from The Kennedy Center to The White House, and around the U.S. performing his own solo shows, “The Man At The Piano” and “The Hands of Liberace” to rave reviews.
Truly a piece of Caesars Palace’s storied history, Cleopatra’s Barge offers a classic Vegas lounge and bar experience. With its intimate size and red and gold décor, the luxurious floating barge is an ornate replica of the graceful craft that transported the royalty of Egypt on the Nile River in the time of Julius Caesar.
