Frank Marino, the performer who plays Joan Rivers, along with the cast of “Divas Las Vegas” celebrated the 1,000th show of the dazzling drag spectacular at Imperial Palace Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Marino has performed in Las Vegas for more than 27 years, making him the longest-running headliner in Sin City. Further cementing his status as an international entertainment icon, he recently appeared on Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and E!’s “Fashion Police.”
“With 17 costume changes per show, I have had a total of 17,000 costume changes at Imperial Palace. I put the Strip in Las Vegas Strip!” Marino said.
A contemporary and upbeat production, “Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas” continues to reinvent itself as the only Las Vegas tribute show to feature 17 characters each night. In addition to featuring talented female celebrity impersonations of entertainment’s most beloved superstars like Cher, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Bette Midler and Madonna, the production was the first on the Strip to add new characters such as Rihanna, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. Additionally, the show now features a new Katy Perry number featuring the hits “I Kissed a Girl” and “Hot n Cold.”
Marino narrates the entire production and also performs a comedic pop culture monologue. At 1,000 performances, “Divas Las Vegas” continues to wow audiences from young and old with amazing talent, imagery – most importantly in a divas-style drag show – with stunning costumes and gowns.
