The winner of "Dancing With the Stars"' first season and a former Spice Girl are starring in a new Vegas show about taking it all off.
Scary Spice Mel B and "General Hospital" actress Kelly Monaco star in "Peepshow," slated to open at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas in April, 2009.
Mel B will originate the role as the mistress of ceremonies, the “Peep Diva,” and Monaco will take the stage as “Bo Peep,” a timid girl who the Diva guides in her transformation into a confident, sensual woman.
But while the burlesque show will feature plenty of nudity, Monaco and Mel will be keeping their clothes on.
“'Peepshow' has been a dream of mine for a long time and now that dream is coming true,” said director/choreogrpaher Jerry Mitchell. “We have gathered 20 of the sexiest dancers from film, video, and Broadway to bring a truly American form of entertainment back to the strip.”
Mel B sees the role as good practice for a solo release planned for next year. "Because I'm coming out as a solo artist next year, I feel this show is putting me back in an arena that I'm most comfortable in and love doing most, which is performing and entertaining on stage."
If its a success, the revue plans to rotate in celebrities that will play multiple month engagements.
