ABSINTHE by Spiegelworld - Sydney season extended until October 25 2015
The Gazillionaire said today, “The season extension has nothing to do with the show’s unrivalled popularity or the rave reviews. The male acrobats in my horny troupe from Poland, Belarus and Ukraine actually pleaded with me to bring the show to Sydney. The beautiful beach babes of Sydney are renowned the world over and my fitness focused acrobats were hoping to find themselves wives while they were here. Marrying them off would certainly help with some of the immigration visa issues we’ve been having. And as none of the poor lads have been successful in finding a Sydney girl yet, I have agreed to keep the show here a little longer if they promise to show even more flesh on stage.” @SpiegelworldAus

Tickets for the three new and final weeks of shows in October are now on sale through www.Ticketek.com.au Since arriving in Australia earlier this year, ABSINTHE has been hailed by audiences and critics alike. The Australian said, “ABSINTHE is an extraordinarily polished, dynamic, bullet-train of a show… There are the most extraordinary bodies doing the most extraordinary things.”
Australian Stage commented, “The close proximity to the performers means you get to see every muscle and hear every breath. This is a terrific production and another triumph for the Spiegelworld team.” While the Herald Sun said, “ABSINTHE is still the rudest circus to hit town… performers are top notch.”
Inspired by the absinthe-drenched cabarets of late 19th century Europe, ABSINTHE is an adult-themed cocktail of circus, comedy, burlesque and vaudeville for a 21st century audience. In Las Vegas, the show has been playing to sold-out audiences at the world’s most famous casino, Caesars Palace, since 2011. Celebrities regularly flock to join the audience and have recently included Britney Spears, James Franco, Neil Patrick Harris and Olivia Newton-John. Last month during a performance at the Las Vegas production, Channing Tatum was inspired to jump up on stage to perform an impromptu lap dance.
ABSINTHE is hosted by the filthy rich and just plain filthy Gazillionaire and his loyal assistant Abby Bobbins. The Gazillionaire has become one of the most acclaimed and subversive comedy forces in Las Vegas in recent years. Intoxicating songs are performed live by the seductive sylph, The Green Fairy, who is played by Australia’s own Karla Tonkich.
ABSINTHE is a follow-up to Spiegelworld’s record-breaking spiegeltent show, EMPIRE, which was seen by an incredible 200,000 Australians last year.
