EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED: Taking the variety show to outrageous new levels is Beacher’s Madhouse, conceived by nightlife impresario Jeff Beacher in 2002. The act now has a new home at the MGM Grand; Miley Cyrus hosted the Dec. 27 opening alongside Katy Perry and Selena Gomez.
This fantasy-filled, 8,500-square-foot theater is where Beacher promises to take “live entertainment to new levels” with acts that combine the “energy of a nightclub and the atmosphere of a circus.”
Guests enter through a speakeasylike corridor, slyly hidden behind a bookcase, and are led into pure madness: “flying midget bartenders,” mini Britney Spears, dancing Oompa Loompas, live monkeys. And of course, the world’s tallest burlesque dancer, 6-foot-7 Amazon Ashley, who taught Miley her now infamous “twerk” move (and has since twerked alongside the star in her “We Can’t Stop” music video and VMA performance).
Beacher’s also has a Hollywood location, which opened in 2010 inside the Roosevelt Hotel. Its biweekly shows seat 150 guests.
Its Las Vegas counterpart, however, has a stage four times larger, 300 seats, four “flying midget bartenders,” 70 performers and 18 little people.
Live performances are held Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets are $75 for general admission or $125 for reserved seating.
