The Academy Awards’ excitement was building as the celebrities walked down the Red Carpet.
How do the beautiful ladies of “Fantasy” (Luxor) keep their figures because they don’t wear much on stage? One answered, “We work hard every night and really do dance.
“Fantasy” is a review featuring a fantasy for every taste with a bed number, country number and more. We have 8 dancers, a comedian and an amazing singer.”
Josh Strickland, the lead male singer of “Peepshow” arrived. Josh described “Peepshow”, “We have put together famous nursery rhymes like Goldilocks and Little Bo Peep and intertwined their stories bringing the show back to the old school-style of burlesque. It is sexy, R rated.
I take Bo Peep on a journey with the songs from Michael Bouble, “Feeling Good”, Genuine’s “Pony”, to Aerosmith’s “Pink”. There are a lot of styles in the different acts.
The thing most people are excited that they don’t know what to expect. They walk away with a really amazing experience with a smile on their faces after the show.”
Josh has appeared in the show since the beginning when they opened four years ago. He worked with Mel B, Kelly Monaco, Holly Madison and now the latest guest star Coco.
As far as the movies, he favored Zero Dark Thirty, Argo and Lincoln as well.
Later the celebs were whisked away to take the private elevator up to the luxurious Celebrity Suite.
I joined everyone for the reception. The Celebrity Suite had a large wall to wall aquarium, open bar, living room, dining room, bedroom and several television areas. We chose from a buffet of meat balls, appetizers, cheese plates, along with bar drinks while watching the Los Angeles Academy Awards presentations on television.

Variety International has a network of 43 Tents in 13 countries that offer financial assistance and services to special needs children and the organizations serving these children.
