As previously reported, Spice Girls Mel B. and "Dancing with the Stars" alumnus Kelly Monaco will headline the sultry Las Vegas production, which begins previews at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino March 30 and will officially open in Sin City April 18.

Newly added to the company are "American Idol" contestant and star of Broadway's Tarzan Strickland as the male vocalist for the production, as well as Peepshow girls Lena Blake, Olivia Cipolla, Keltie Colleen, Kristin Rose DeCesare, Renay Herter, Monica Klus, Emily Loftiss (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Michele Martinez, Allie Meixner, Marielys Molina, Leah O'Donnell, Carolyn Pace, Jessica Press, Jennifer Quinlan, Katie Webber (Wicked), Adar Wellington and Kaci R. Wilson.

Ensemble members for the production include Albert Blaise Cattafi, Jason Davies (Wicked), Nick Kenkel (Legally Blonde), Stoyan Metchkarov and Timber.

Mitchell (Legally Blonde, Hairspray, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Broadway Bares) has teamed with BASE Entertainment on the new production, which 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."

Original Spice Girl Mel B. (a.k.a. Melanie Brown) will portray "The Peep Diva," who serves as the evening's emcee, and will guide "Bo Peep" (portrayed by Kelly Monaco) on her search for love. Peepshow will feature original music and arrangements from composer Andrew Lippa, who has penned The Wild Party, john & jen, Asphalt Beach and the forthcoming Broadway musical adaptation of The Addams Family.

A design team of Broadway veterans has been 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 will be performed Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Friday at 8 PM and Thursday and Saturday at 7 PM and 9:30 PM. Tickets, priced $65-$100, are available by phoning (702) 474-4000 or by visiting Ticketmaster.com
