Reinventing the art and style of burlesque keeps FANTASY alive

Showgirls have represented the Las Vegas brand for decades, but the women who perform at FANTASY at Luxor Hotel and Casino are reinventing the art of the tease with aerial silk routines, superior singing and fresh choreography.

“FANTASY is for men, women, couples, singles or even larger groups. We really offer something for everyone,” Anita Mann, owner of Anita Mann Productions and producer of FANTASY, said. “We love having ladies in the audience supporting us and appreciating what we do as much as the men.”

That’s how FANTASY became the gold standard of adult revues in Las Vegas and has remained one of the top productions on the strip for more than 19 years. Everyone involved with the show from the dancers to comedian Sean E Cooper and the costume designers work towards creating a show that’s relevant for its time and the best it can be each night.

One way FANTASY keeps evolving is through regular updates to the music and choreography. The 15 high-energy numbers are set to a variety of today’s top music, which means the show someone saw in 2018 isn’t the same show they’d see during a return visit in 2019.

“The theme of the show always stays the same,” Mann said. “But this year, there are three new numbers. We always think it is really fun to see the changes.”
 


FANTASY’s nightly female revues also include acrobats who perform aerial silk routines and a beautiful choreographed pole dance while award-winning vocalist, Lorena Peril, sings.

“The ladies are all very strong dancers,” Mann said. “They’re selected for their all-around ability to perform each night.”

Many of FANTASY’S performers have years of formal dance and ballet training because, well, it takes a lot of technical skill to bear the weight of certain costumes and dance in high heels.

 “We’re also an intimate show that really likes to get to know our audience,” Mann said. “Everyone is able to stay after the show for autographs and photos with the cast.”

And there’s no bad seat in the house.

Each of the different ticket prices comes with a clear view of the stage, Mann said.

Another way FANTASY is changing the perception of the Las Vegas showgirl is by appealing to women, couples and even bachelorette parties.

“We have so much fun with those ladies,” Mann said.

FANTASY is a great way to start out a memorable night on the strip. It’s classic Vegas with a modern twist.
