Monday night, X Burlesque celebrated its 20th anniversary on the famous Las Vegas strip at the Flamingo. This show can still surprise us with the beautiful girls, great numbers, and “entertaining” costumes. The show was honored by Caesars Entertainment’s President of Entertainment, Jason Gastwirth, along with Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom, who presented Matt and Angela Stabile, creators and producers of X Burlesque, with a Key to the Las Vegas Strip.
I’ve known Angela since she first started the show, and can vouch that the team of her and her husband do everything to perfection. They also have a second show, X Country which performs at Harrahs, and also represent Piff The Magic Dragon, who has an earlier show at the Flamingo.
We were all treated to a rousing performance of the production inside the X Burlesque Theatre, featuring three new dance numbers, including a new hip-hop number, “Tap In” by Saweetie; a new bed number set to Adele’s “Easy On Me”; and a new solo, “I Just Want To Make Love To You” by Etta James.
Prior to the performance, guests celebrated with a red carpet reception at Bugsy & Meyer’s inside Flamingo Las Vegas. What a restaurant this is! This was my fourth time there and everyone had a great time.
The X Burlesque dancers were joined on the red carpet by Matt and Angela Stabile; show producer and manager Tiffany Mondell; and show choreographer, manager, and producer Anthony Cardella. Comedian Rich Little, musician Frankie Sidoris, Flamingo Las Vegas headliner Piff the Magic Dragon and Jade Simone, Harrah’s Las Vegas headliner Tape Face, professional BMX rider Ricardo Laguna, the Australian Bee Gees, dancers from FANTASY, magician Murray SawChuck and wife Dani Elizabeth, magician Douglas Leferovich, international pinup model Sabina Kelley, cast members from Raiding the Rock Vault, and dancers from X Burlesque’s sister show, X Country at Harrah’s Las Vegas, all attending. There were drinks and fantastic appetizers.
Anyone who has not seen this show when in Las Vegas, should be sure to go next time around. The famous Wayne Newton also performs in the same showroom earlier in the evening. X Burlesque is x-rated but very tastefully done.
Created and produced by husband and wife team, Matt and Angela Stabile, X Burlesque performs at the Flamingo Las Vegas Thursday through Monday at 10 p.m., with additional 7 p.m. shows Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Tickets start at $56, plus tax and fees, and can be purchased at the Flamingo Box Office.
