Sin City Opera teams up with Off-Strip Productions to perform two one-act operas at the Onyx Theatre. The two operas are thematically related, each having plots that center around telephones, and the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Gian Carlo Menotti's comic The Telephone presents an exasperating situation that is especially resonant now that we all have mobile phones. Poor Ben has a very important question for Lucy, but his attempts to ask it are constantly interrupted by telephone calls. The dramatic tour de force The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine) by Francis Poulenc (performed in a new English translation) is a musical adaptation of Jean Cocteau's dramatic monologue of the same name.

Quotes & Highlights
Christopher Peterson’s one man, many woman extravaganza, Eyecons, has arrived in Las Vegas. “I am more than excited to be back in Vegas”, says Christopher. “It seems like ages since I was grand marshal Susan Anton’s special guest at Gay Pride 2002 and hosted the Beaux Arts Ball at MGM’s Studio 54. This time I’m staying. I’ve bought a home here in town and I am looking forward to a long lucrative run beginning in January at the venerable and cutting edge Onyx Theatre.”
The show is a 90 minute hilarious, irreverent and sometimes poignant look at the great ladies of 20th century showbiz and a peek or two at some of those shaking it up in the 21st. (Can you spell Lady Gaga?) Spot on impressions of Marilyn Monroe, Carol Channing, Joan Rivers, Reba McEntire, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand , Julie Andrews, Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Liza Minnelli, her mama Judy Garland and the whitest Tina Turner you ever saw, are all performed live, (no lip sync here folks) and all the changes are done right before your eyes.
A Dora Award (Canadian Tony) winning star in Canada for Brad Fraser’s hit play Poor Superman and a scene stealing Lucy alongside Cuba Gooding jr. in Jerry Zucker’s film, Rat Race, Christopher has wowed crowds up and down the East Coast for a decade. From sharing a playbill with the likes of Victor Borge and Ben Vereen at the Westhampton Centre for the Performing Arts to restoring the art of cabaret in Key West, Florida and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Christopher has built an extensive fan base. His most recent sold out shows with the Heartland Men’s Chorus of Kansas City only further served to extend his reach nationally and cement his reputation as the undisputed king, that is queen, of his profession. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch the heir to the thrones of such greats as Charles Pierce, Jim Bailey and Craig Russell. You’ve seen the rest, now come see the best.
