FANTASY at Luxor Hotel and Casino celebrated its 22nd anniversary, received its most awarded year in the show’s history on Tuesday night and I was there, as I have been for the last 16 years. The fabulous all-female revue showcased two new numbers, including a finale set to “Last Dance” that had everyone in the room on their feet and dancing.

In 2021, FANTASY was awarded the show’s first gold award for “Best Production Show” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” in 2020 and “Best Production Show – Readers’ Choice” by Las Vegas Weekly. FANTASY also won “All-Time Best Female Revue” by Las Vegas Weekly and “Best Female Revue” by “Best of Las Vegas.” The show’s dynamic singer and headliner, Lorena Peril, was recently awarded “Best Local Entertainer” by the Silver State Awards. Lorena continues to amaze everyone who hears her dynamite voice. Truly a performer, she is always there with a little humor to add.
FANTASY’s gorgeous showgirls posed for photographs on stage in the Atrium Showroom and shared a sneak peek of their new 2022 “Gold Standard” calendar. The cast was joined by Anita Mann, the producer, director, and Emmy award-winning choreographer of FANTASY; along with numerous well-known Las Vegas entertainers.
Chuck Bowling, COO of Mandalay Bay and Luxor, welcomed the audience and introduced Mann, who shared her gratitude for the cast, crew and fans of FANTASY. It was also revealed that MGM Resorts Foundation is the recipient of an annual donation from sales of FANTASY’s “Gold Standard” 2022 calendar.
FANTASY’s guest act and stand-up comedian,
Shayma Tash, had the crowd in hysterics, with her routine. With the two new numbers, each sung by Peril, including “Proud Mary,” choreographed by dance captain, Yesi Burgess, and “Last Dance,” choreographed by Martina.
