LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Mel B is heading to Las Vegas.
The former Spice Girl is just months away from starring in “PEEPSHOW,” an adult theatrical extravaganza at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, beginning April 18, 2009.
“I actually start my rehearsals in February,” Mel revealed to Access Hollywood. “The show is like a burlesque, sexy woman power/girl power adventure. [I’m] very excited.”
The show, tickets for which are already on sale, was created by Jerry Mitchell, the director and choreographer of Broadway’s “Legally Blonde: The Musical.”
Using all of Mel’s singing, dancing and acting talents, the production features Mel playing a character who leads another character, played by “General Hospital’s” Kelly Monaco, on an adventure.
“It’s all about a girl that gets taken on this journey, by me,” Mel explained of the show. “It’s all song, all dance… For me it was more about getting back into performing and this was a perfect show.”
“She’s the girl that I bring on board into my web of adventure,” Mel continued. “I’m the narrator/friend… It’s very sexy, very spicy and it’s all about empowering women, so [it has] all these different journeys and routines that I take her on.”
Mel said that she is eager to reclaim the stage next year in a fashion akin to her pop star days.
“I’m going back to my Spice Girls roots and getting on stage and entertaining and singing and dancing, and I can’t wait,” she said.
