‘Blanc de Blanc’ ready to pop the cork on Las Vegas Strip

The show is called “Blanc de Blanc.” A fitting subtitle would be “The Hot Tub VIP Cabaret!”

Yep. A real hot tub is to be a primary stage effect in “Blanc de Blanc,” which opens at the Foundry at SLS Las Vegas/Sahara on Aug. 16. The show has been rumored to be arriving on the Strip for the past three years. The show performs at 7 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays, with additional 9:30 p.m. shows Saturdays. Tickets range from $49 to $129 (not including fees, and Hot Tub tickets are priced for groups) and are on sale now at slslasvegas.com.

The resort’s main entertainment venue is being renovated specifically for this show.

”We’re reworking the whole space, and if you have been in the Foundry before, you won’t recognize it,” show creator and director Scott Maidment said Tuesday in an interview from Melbourne, Australia. “The audience is a lot closer, up close to the performers. The central thing is the hot tub, a ‘reveal’ where the emcee performs in a hot tub in the second half of the show, and audience members will also be in hot tubs. They can jump in with the emcee, too. We’ve had people sitting right in there with him.”

Splashy. Maidment says the aquatic seating option is “a great date night” (well, duh). This horseplay takes place in what is currently the Foundry’s general-admission section, which will be primary — but not only — performance area for “Blanc de Blanc.”

“In Vegas, you can actually book a ticket where you can see the whole second half of the show from the hot tub,” Maidment said. “You can bring your swimwear, and you can sit in the hot tub, drinking champagne and watching the show. I think Vegas audiences will go for that.”

There will be two such large tubs, suitable for six audience members (or, one nomadic columnist with an entourage of five).

Of course, there is much more to the international traveling production than just Jacuzzi action. Created by Australia’s independent Strut & Fret Production House, which produces multiple touring shows, “Blanc” offers a variety of interlocking sequences. These include acrobatic acts (including a human-balancing team), spinning aerial performances and in-your-lap dance numbers.

The setting is a French cabaret hearkening to Moulin Rouge, with an Armani model-type emcee guiding the story line.

Maidment likens the experience to sipping champagne.
