Pretty as a Pic­ture

Where Las Vegas - - WHERE NOW -

A trib­ute to the clas­sic cal­en­dar girl, the glam­our of the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s comes to life in Strato­sphere’s (702.380.7777) PIN UP, which stars Play­boy’s 2011 Play­mate of the Year Claire Sin­clair (at left), who takes on an en­tire year of gor­geous (and barely there) cos­tumes, among them a fire­fighter, a base­ball player and a witch.

As a youth, Sin­clair pre­dicted her in­volve­ment in the pin-up world, when she told her fa­ther “I’m go­ing to do that when I grow up,” af­ter quizzing him about pin-up art. She was painted by Play­boy artist Olivia de Bera­di­nis at age 18 and was the youngest ever Play­mate of the Year.

At the op­po­site end of the Strip, has been go­ing strong for more than 15 years, thanks to the in­ge­nu­ity of chore­og­ra­pher Anita Mann, who once danced for Elvis Pres­ley. The adult re­vue’s se­duc­tive vi­gnettes play into the fan­tasies of its au­di­ence mem­bers, and in­clude three ladies ca­vort­ing in one bed, an em­u­la­tion of Jes­sica Rab­bit, a per­for­mance on a silk sash and thrilling dances that fea­ture the en­tire cast—fan­tasies that are ap­peal­ing to both sin­gles and cou­ples. Singer Jaime Lynch (seen on the this is­sue’s ta­ble of con­tents) truly makes the show stand out—her pow­er­house vo­cals in­clude ren­di­tions of con­tem­po­rary rock and coun­try tunes.
