Delve into the Intoxication of Sin City | Jubilee! (Las Vegas)
Whenever we hear the words “Las Vegas”, images of casinos, gambling, strip shows, lap dances, card games, stand up comedies, and so on, flash through the mind. Thousands of tourists come here from all corners of the world to catch a glimpse of the pleasures this town has to offer, and showgirls play an integral role in it.
Showgirls rule the roost
A common misconception is that showgirls are just what their name indicates – they are just for “show” without any real talent to provide quality entertainment. However, that is completely untrue. Showgirls are extremely skilled in various feats, which comprise a major part of attractions in this town. In fact, Bally’s Las Vegas is one of the few places where you can watch real showgirls giving performances.
After more than 3 decades in the business, Jubilee! has achieved cult status, by outlasting other showgirl productions and other shows in Vegas – no wonder it is hailed as a legend. Jubilee! embodies the glamour and true spirit of this town – a complete Vegas revue with topless performers donning feathers and rhinestones, just like you see in the movies.
Jubilee! has maintained a historical touch, while making detailed changes to ensure the overall shows are even better. For instance, the revamped version retains the candor and freshness of the original program, while incorporating elements of a contemporary culture. Almost 100 performers, including boys and girls, dance, jive, and sing through 95 minutes of non-stop tracks like the sinking of the Titanic, and Samson and Delilah. The sparkling and vibrant costumes are spectacular, while the feathered headdresses and scintillating entries through the grand staircase captivates you throughout the show.
The unique factor about Jubilee! is it functions like clockwork – the same way it has been over the last 30 years. The wardrobe team has to sew, repair, and clean costumes by hand, while stagehands and other crew help to disassemble and reassemble sets and props for the show on a regular basis. Did you know the stage is enormous – almost half the size of a football field, and is touted to be 3rd on a list of most technologically advanced stages in the world.
Almost 10 performances are staged every week, so attending Jubilee! is a must. You should also check out the backstage tour and Vintage Vegas that is the original revue of showgirls. A ticket for Jubilee! at Bally’s also includes a free dinner buffet at Paris Las Vegas – enjoy!
