The show received 5-star reviews in The Times and The Scotsman, and then immediately transferred to its permanent Las Vegas home at the Atomic Saloon insideSpiegelworld is an American theater company. Spiegelworld began by producing shows for a heritage Belgian spiegeltent, made of wood and mirrors, which blurred the lines between cocktail party, live show and night club. Audiences were encouraged to drink from the bars during the show while performers appeared on a central stage only nine feet in diameter. This intimate, immersive design principle has informed the creation of all of Spiegelworld’s subsequent productions. Headed by its Impresario Extraordinaire, Ross Mollison, Spiegelworld first opened in the summer of 2006 with the premiere of the show Absinthe on South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 on the East River in New York City. Spiegelworld returned in 2007 with a follow-up season of Absinthe and the premiere of La Vie. The Spiegelworld village was expanded to include a restaurant, hammock garden, outdoor bars, VIP cabanas and a late night music program. In August 2008, Spiegelworld presented a third season on Pier 17 with two spiegeltents and three shows: Absinthe, Gazillionaire’s Late Night Lounge and Desir as well as a live music program and silent disco. Spiegelworld toured Absinthe to Miami South Beach in 2008, and in January 2009 it created the live entertainment program at the Australian Open tennis grand slam tournament in Melbourne which included a season of Absinthe and a live music program. Spiegelworld opened an enhanced version of its hit show Absinthe at Caesars Palace Las Vegas on 1 April 2011. The show was initially presented in a 650 seat spiegeltent located on the Roman Plaza. After a six month season, the show was extended and transferred to a custom-built tent on the same location. Still running today, on 16 November 2016, Absinthe was named by Las Vegas Weekly as “the #1 greatest show in Las Vegas history”. On May 31, 2012, Spiegelworld returned to New York City with its new show Empire and a new site for its spiegeltent on an unused car park in Times Square. Empire commenced a 17 month Australian tour in Sydney on 4 January 2013. In late 2014, the show toured New Zealand and then in 2015 it played seasons in Tokyo, Portland, Toronto and Montreal. In January 2014, Spiegelworld premiered its new show Vegas Nocturne at Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Presented in three distinct cantos throughout an integrated bar, showroom and restaurant venue, the show ran until July 2014. Select elements of Vegas Nocturne have since been presented at development showcase seasons at the Slipper Room and House of Yes in New York City and the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it was voted Strangest Show. In 2016, Spiegelworld presented a series of development showcase seasons in Las Vegas and at Joe’s Pub in New York City of Never Sleep Alone, an interactive dating advice comedy featuring the character Dr Alex Schiller. Absinthe toured Australia in 2015, co-presented by Nine Live. On 24 March 2016, a 3 month Los Angeles season of Absinthe opened at L.A. Live in Downtown LA. In early 2018, Spiegelworld began creating a new show for Las Vegas which set out to combine an ensemble of comic characters, unusual variety acts and a retro outer space theme. Opium commenced previews at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on March 13, 2018, and celebrated its 800th performance on October 31, 2019. Opium commenced previews at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on March 13, 2018 Spiegelworld premiered the Wild West themed Atomic Saloon Show at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, playing from August 1 to 25 in the Palais du Variete spiegeltent at Assembly George Square Gardens.
