Kelly Monaco says she's feeling "very nervous and very excited" about her upcoming appearance on the topless, burlesque-style show 'PEEPSHOW'.
"Dancing with the Stars" alumni Kelly Monaco and Melanie Brown have signed on to star in "PEEPSHOW," an adult theatrical extravaganza that was created by Jerry Mitchell, the director and choreographer of Broadway's "Legally Blonde: The Musical." Both of them are set to star in the show for several months, beginning on April 18 next year.
Kelly is billed to play the character of "Little Bo Peep," a timid and lonely girl who is guided by Melanie's character, "Peep Diva." "It's all about a girl that gets taken on this journey, by me," Melanie explains of the show. "She's the girl that I bring on board into my web of adventure. 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."
However, neither Kelly nor Melanie will be topless, but the showgirls surrounding them will be. As for her part, Melanie says she will be "scantily clad, but in a classy way." And unlike Kelly who feels "very nervous and very excited" about her forthcoming appearance, Melanie feels very confident about it, stating "This part is great for me. As a Spice Girl I would bring guys on the stage and whip them, so I think I've always been slightly naughty."
Tickets have been on sale for preview and regular performances of "PEEPSHOW", which is set to open at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The show will open for preview performances on March 30 next year.
