Vegas Can Be Such a Drag

Posted Wednesday, March 3, 2010 by in Las Vegas Casinos, Las Vegas Entertainment, The Quad. 4 Comments.

Life in Vegas can be a drag, and that’s a good thing! On Feb. 25, drag performer Frank Marino unveiled his new stage spectacular, “Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas” at the Imperial Palace.

As part of the celebration, Marino received a second star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars, the first entertainer to get the honor twice. (He now has a star outside the Imperial Palace, with another in front of the Riviera.)

Bonus factoid: Marino does 17 costume changes during the show, each designed by Bob Mackie.

“Divas Las Vegas” is a 75-minute, up-beat show, replete with men-dressed-as-women look-alikes performing tributes to some of entertainment’s most beloved superstars. The show features seven other performers in drag depicting 13 famous divas, as well as music by Rihanna and The Pussycat Dolls.

Marino is the star of the show, performing a Joan Rivers-inspired monologue and narrating the production throughout.

Extra super bonus factoid: Marino has a Las Vegas street named after him which, he jokes, "also goes both ways."
