Beacher’s Madhouse at MGM Grand
Singer-actress-headline-maker Miley Cyrus and showman Jeff Beacher unveiled the latest incarnation of Beacher’s Madhouse late Friday night at MGM Grand, and it was naturally a star-studded affair.
The glitzy guest list included Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Kellan Lutz, Mario Lopez, Brad Garrett, Adam Lambert, Emile Hirsch, David Copperfield, DJ Pauly D, Mark Salling, Dana White, Michael Bisping, Pauly Shore, Craig Robinson, Devon Aoki, Steve Aoki, Frankie Delgado, George Kotsiopoulos and Johnny Wujek.
Entering with a marching band procession featuring Beacher’s characters — including Elmo, Cookie Monster, Captain Jack Sparrow and Tigger — Cyrus, with bright red lipstick, tongue and a black mini-dress with a green crop top (conservative for her) in tow — was led through MGM Grand as she helped unveil the return of the performance theater.
Also at the celebration for the 8,500-square-foot fantasy-filled theater, the former space of “Crazy Horse Paris,” with MC Pete Giovine: 7-foot-2-tall stripper Amazon Ashley, Mini-Britney, Mini-Beyonce, Mini-Miley, Mini-Robin Thicke, Mini-Kanye, Mini-Psy, Mini-Michael Jackson, Shaving Cream Man, Beacher’s Babies, 8-year-old DJ Baby Chino and Beacher’s house band The Pawn Shop.

Beacher’s Madhouse is known for its energy of a circus and atmosphere of an A-list Hollywood party. The official grand opening of Beacher’s Madhouse is on New Year’s Eve.
