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 compelling partnerships — if it does come off.
Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
