ROUGE, billed as the Sexiest Show in Vegas, celebrated its World Premiere at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod in Las Vegas with a gala event on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

The evening began with a VIP reception inside The STRAT Theater where cast members mingled and flirted with guests that were treated to a sensual menu of food and even a signature cocktail, "The Nurse Naughty-tini,” inspired by one of the characters in the show, “Nurse Naughty.”

Las Vegas has always been synonymous with topless shows and, presently, there are several ongoing sexy female topless and male revues performing here. Rouge, on the other hand, is more than just another topless show. For one thing, the topless element blends in naturally and is not the main focus.

Rouge's talented 18 member cast consists of both gorgeous women and hunky men in one, yes, very sexy production that combines “sexpertise” with a mix of specialty acts that include incredible acrobats, aerialists, dancers, contortionists, and hand balancers performing jaw dropping moves that I've never seen before, and comedy filled with double entendres that are extemely naughty but hilarious. Created by Hanoch Rosènn, the man behind the hit shows Extravaganza at Bally's and WOW – The Vegas Spectacular, at the Rio, this time Rosènn is pushing the envelope to create an adult playground for both the performers and audiences alike. “I’m excited to bring ROUGE to the amazing theater at The STRAT and to celebrate the beauty of passion and desire in a provocative and elegant way,” said Rosènn.

To make it all happen, Rosènn had enlisted some of the industry's top talent to join his Creative Team, including choreographer Nathan J. Clarke, (Creative Director and Choreographer for The Voice UK for four consecutive years and has worked with such artists as Annie Lennox, Rihanna, Queen and Robbie Williams).  In addition, Lighting Designer Charles Morrison (Finding Magic Mike/HBO Max) is on board to design an erotic world inside The STRAT Theater; as well as, Costume Designer Ella Kolesnik (Swan Lake Rock Opera); Video Designer Shai Bonder (The Voice, and lead video designer for Eurovision 2019); Musical Director, Gur Murad (WOW, Extravaganza and various musicals and circus shows); award-winning Set Designer Michael Kramenko (ONE, presented by Rita, the biggest Israeli musical); Resident  & Artistic Director, Sheer Davidai (WOW and Extravaganza);Music Planner, Kobi Ben Atar; and, Artistic Advisor, Yaniv Hadad.

The result of this collaboration is a total dazzler for the senses, complete with stunning costumes, stage design, lighting, sound, cutting-edge video design, terrific music score and choreography. We all have a fantasy - and this full-scale, erotic production brings them to life – on stage through a series of sensual scenes designed to unleash the “sexy wildfire” as well as please and tease your inner voyeur. Whether conjuring up 50 Shades of Grey in a steamy bedroom number, a visit to ancient Rome, the Palace of Versailles or modern-day Las Vegas, ROUGE immerses the audience into a world of seduction and adult adventure. It's all very titillating, extremely naughty (but never vulgar) lots of fun, and highly entertaining from the opening, where we are introduced to the saucy hosts and performers, Zion Martyn as Dr. Libido and Poppy Fairbairn, as previously mentioned Nurse Naughty (you get the picture; need I say more!) to the finale.

The bottom line is Rouge has all the right stuff to be a hit. With all that eye candy, talent and artistry in one spectacular production, it should, deservingly, have a successful, long run.

On Wednesday, May 11 Blackstone and The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas surprised 5,000 employees (CoStars) each with individual $5,000 bonuses, totaling an unprecedented $27 million.

The event kicked off with a heartfelt video presentation, highlighting the resort’s transformative journey since Blackstone’s ownership seven years ago. President and CEO of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Bill McBeath, then took The Chelsea stage to thank CoStars for their unwavering commitment in making The Cosmopolitan the leading luxury hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

“We have incredible partners in Blackstone. In just seven short years, we were able to transform every single facet of the resort” said McBeath. “But more importantly, it was you – the CoStars, the people, that breathe the life and vitality into The Cosmopolitan that makes it [the most successful resort in Las Vegas].”

As the celebratory event came to a triumphant high, McBeath handed out employee recognitions, building anticipation around the final award, which featured a $5,000 grand prize from Blackstone. A climatic drumroll led to McBeath revealing that every single CoStar would be awarded the bonus, totaling more than $27 million in bonus payouts. The room erupted into cheers as confetti rained down on the celebration. Tears and applause filled the packed theatre as CoStars soaked in the exciting news.

Tyler Henritze, Head of Strategic Investments for Blackstone Real Estate, said, “We are incredibly proud of what we accomplished at The Cosmopolitan under our ownership to create the most dynamic destination on the Las Vegas Strip. We know that none of that would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the resort’s amazing employees, and we are thrilled to recognize those contributions.”

Through Blackstone’s ownership and Bill McBeath’s leadership, this event marked the culmination of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ unmatched success:
·The redevelopment of 3,000+ rooms and suites, the introduction of 20+ world-class food and beverage concepts and an investment in forward thinking resort technology. 
·Redefining luxury and high-end gaming with the introduction of the Boulevard Penthouses, private jet, high-limit gaming facilities and more. 
·Becoming the first resort on the Las Vegas Strip to achieve an 80% employee COVID-19 vaccination rate. 
·Donating more than $9 million to local Las Vegas charities.

Earlier in the program, President of UNITE HERE!, D. Taylor applauded Blackstone and McBeath for prioritizing employees congratulated them on their successes. Chief People Officer Daniel Espino then recognized two CoStars with the Ultimate Core Awards.
