I’m a big fan of The Chippendales. My husband works with them, and I always have a great time when I go to the theater with him here in Las Vegas.
The show is so much more than what it used to be in the 80s – this ain’t your mama’s Chippendales kids. Live singers, live musicians, the whole show is a “production show” onstage. It’s not the “strip and tip” kind of thing it was back in the 80s.
I love to watch the show from the back of the theatre (the show is at The Rio Resort & Casino here in Las Vegas, and The Chippendales have their own $10 million theater and lounge facility). Watching women have a great time and let their hair down is amazing. It’s good clean adult fun, and not all that raunchy. The one thing I hear people say over and over again when they come to the show is “this is NOT what I thought it would be.”
Also, although the show is marketed to women, men are welcome in the audience. Every night there are married couples in the audience, or some gay men coming with their female BFFs. It’s really a fun time. If you haven’t been, make a point of seeing it when you come to Vegas.
