Caesars Entertainment announced Thursday deal to bring a live entertainment show to Harrah’s Casino in New Orleans to begin after the casino is remodeled and rebranded as Caesars New Orleans in 2023.
The the theater and dining project is in partnership with entertainment company Spiegelworld, best known for the long-running 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 news release said that the New Orleans show would be a brand-new development that will “push the boundaries of adult circus-comedy entertainment.”
“Las Vegas, Atlantic City and New Orleans are the country’s modern-day entertainment and sports capitals,” said Caesars President and CEO Anthony Carano in a prepared statement, “and as we roll out our vision for the incredible reinventions of our properties in New Orleans and Atlantic City, we are delighted to add Spiegelworld’s eye for creative experiences to our plans.”
Caesars, which has a partnership with The Advocate and Times-Picayune, had previously announced a $325 million renovation and rebranding to take place in 2023. The Spiegelworld show is expected 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 live entertainment party “Superfrico” at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
