Absinthe’ signs on for multi-year extension at Caesars

Penny and The Gazillionaire perform in Absinthe at Caesars Palace.

Caesars Palace isn’t taking the Spiegeltent down anytime soon.

Today the resort announced a multi-year extension of Spiegelworld’s naughty circus, Absinthe, which first opened at the Strip property to rave reviews in April 2011.

Originally intended for a limited run, the production has already been extended at Caesars twice—once in September 2011 and again in August 2012, as was reported by the Las Vegas Sun. With the new contract, the Gazillionaire and co. are slated to perform through 2016, and tickets through October 5, 2014, are now on sale.

“With all of the well-deserved attention and love, I’ve decided to extend the stay at Caesars Palace for several more years,” the Gazillionaire, Absinthe’s emcee and producer, said in a statement released today. “Besides, it’ll cost me more money to have this show relocated to another location, so I figured it would be cheaper to just stay in Las Vegas.”

So, if you’re a fan of Penny Pibbets, rest easy—those sock puppets are going to be shocking local audiences for years to come.
