A different kind of lap dance in "Absinthe"

Leave your polite sensibilities at the door for "Absinthe," a night of burlesque, acrobatics and rude, raunchy humor. The fun unfolds in front of Caesars Palace, where hand balancers, high-wire acts and an unbelievably daring roller-skating duo perform on a circular stage that is only 9 feet in diameter (and within close proximity to the audience). It's good fun that goes down easier with a pre-show absinthe inside the tent's speakeasy.
