Caesars Entertainment announced on Thursday an agreement to host a live entertainment show at Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans after the casino is remodeled and renamed Caesars New Orleans in 2023.
The theater and catering project is in partnership with entertainment company Spiegelworld, best known for the longtime and acclaimed show “Absinthe” in Las Vegas.
The deal, for which Spiegelworld will develop new shows at Caesars properties in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, New Jersey, is worth nearly $ 75 million. A press release said the New Orleans show would be a whole new development that “pushes the boundaries of circus-comedy adult entertainment.”
“Las Vegas, Atlantic City and New Orleans are the modern entertainment and sport capitals of the country,” said Caesars President and CEO Anthony Carano in a prepared statement, “and as we unfold our vision of the incredible reinventions of our properties in New Orleans and Atlantic City, we’re excited to add Spiegelworld’s eye for creative experiences to our plans. “
Caesars, which has a partnership with The Advocate and Times-Picayune, previously announced a $ 325 million renovation and rebranding that will take place in 2023. The Spiegelworld show is slated to begin in early 2024.
In addition to “Absinthe”, Spiegelworld also produces “OPIUM” at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the “Atomic Saloon Show” at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Las Vegas and the “Superfrico” live entertainment evening at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
