Mel B. (Melanie Brown) will depart the production June 21, the same day that former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant and "General Hospital" cast member Kelly Monaco will exit the production.

Bean (Wicked, Godspell, Hairspray) will assume the role of "The Peep Diva," while "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Holly Madison will assume the role of "Bo Peep." Both Bean and Madison are scheduled to begin performances June 22.

“Shoshana is a brilliant and gifted performer and a perfect fit for Peepshow,” said Scott Zeiger of BASE Entertainment. “She is a triple threat – she can sing, dance and act and her theatrical experience will bring a whole new element to the stage at Planet Hollywood.”

Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Broadway Bares) teamed with BASE Entertainment on the new production, which opened in Las Vegas April 18. Composer Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party, john & jen, The Addams Family), penned original music and arrangements for Peepshow.

The Las Vegas engagement, which promises a rotating lineup of celebrities, is described as "a modern burlesque show created specifically for the dynamic, glamorous audience that exists only in the adult playground of Las Vegas. A highly stylized, full-throttle production show that combines sexy striptease and celebrity with high-level production values and a dash of passion." Peepshow also stars "American Idol" contestant and star of Broadway's Tarzan, Josh Strickland, as the male vocalist.

The Peepshow girls are Lena Blake, Olivia Cipolla, Keltie Colleen, Kristin Rose DeCesare, Cheaza, Renay Herter, Monica Klus, Michele Martinez, Allie Meixner, Marielys Molina, Sophia Monica, Leah O'Donnell, Carolyn Pace, Jessica Press, Jennifer Quinlan, Jackie Seiden, Katie Webber (Wicked), Adar Wellington and Kaci R. Wilson. Ensemble members include Albert Blaise Cattafi, Jason Davies (Wicked), Nick Kenkel (Legally Blonde), Stoyan Metchkarov and Timber.

A design team of Broadway veterans was assembled for Peepshow: David Rockwell (set design), Gregg Barnes (costume design), Josh Marquette (hair design), Chris Lee (lighting design), Zachary Borovay (video design) and ACME Sound Partners (sound design).

Peepshow plays Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 8 PM, and Friday and Saturday at 8 PM and 10:30 PM. Tickets, priced $65-$100+, are available by phoning (800) 745-3000 or by visiting Ticketmaster.com
