‘R-rated’ Cirque coming to NY-NY

Apr 17, 2003 2:58 AM

Cirque du Soleil’s new show Zumanity that’s headed for New York-New York is being billed as "a provocative exhibition of human sensuality, arousal and eroticism."

Wow, that sounds like one of my home movies! In any case, all Cirque du Soleil productions, from O to Mystere to whatever, are by nature sensual, because of the intimate choreography and the nubile performers. But, an adult version such as Zumanity, should really be a blood boiler!

Speaking of raising temperatures, Las Vegas regular Carmen Electra might be joining the cast of the film "Starsky and Hutch" that’s based on the 1970s police action series.

I’m an old-timer, but a Las Vegas newcomer. Producer-performer Breck Wall is an old-timer who has been a Las Vegas mainstay for years! Since Breck’s Bottoms Up celebrates its 44th anniversary on July 8, I figure he actually may be older than me.

The Burlesque-like review has been featured on many a marquee, including the current run at the Flamingo. I hear that Breck has a trunk ”” older than he is ”” full of material that he has been recycling for years, every classic joke or pratfall. I’ll be laughing my rear end off as he unveils his new show.

The "Hope Is Eternal" ball is scheduled April 27, at 3 p.m. at the Suncoast. The sensational Scintas tops the entertainment that raises funds for fighting blood-related cancers.

Brenda Holmes, Clint’s better half, gets honored as Las Vegas Magazines "Woman of The Year" next week”¦I came in second.

The leading topic of conversation from my Hollywood friends was "what did you think of Celine?" My standard reply is "My dear friend Celine is doing very well."

Okay, she’s not the closest of buddies. Maybe, she doesn’t even know who I am. But I do own her CDs. And if she offered, I’d love some of her old costume jewelry.

Don’t fret if you missed Cher’s farewell tour. She’s planning a replay, called "One Last Time." Promises, promises.
