For several months, Holly Madison has talked offhandedly of returning to the stage in Las Vegas. She has spoken of returning to the stage in a “legitimate musical,” a production she would envision and in which she would star.
Six months after fiance Pasquale Rotella and she started a family with the arrival of their daughter, Rainbow, and 10 months after leaving “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood, Madison is moving to a return to live performance. US Weekly has reported, quoting an anonymous source, that Madison is in talks with a producer in Las Vegas to write and co-produce a stage show.
Who might such a producer be? One strong possibility is SPI Entertainment founder and CEO Adam Steck.
At the moment, there is no announced signing of any formal agreement, no venue specified and no concept to report, and Madison said via text over the weekend that she is “still interviewing” with prospective production companies.
But all indications are that Steck, who is forever looking for The Next Big Thing, is in the middle of this Holly-to-the-stage dialogue. She wants to do a show, and Steck is putting on many shows, most recently "Rocktellz & Cocktails," set to open at Planet Hollywood in September with Meat Loaf as the first star storyteller.
This could be one of the Strip's most interesting partnerships — if it does come off.
