October 15, 2009 by VegasNews.com
Imperial Palace is pleased to announce that “Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas” recently signed a one-year contract to deliver dynamic performances six nights a week at 10 p.m. in the Imperial Theater starting Oct. 17.
Presented by comedic icon and Strip headliner of more than 25 years, Frank Marino, Divas Las Vegas is a 75-minute energetic and over-the-top production featuring 16 male, lady look-alikes impersonating some of music and entertainment’s biggest superstars including Cher, Beyonce, Diana Ross, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Celine Dion and Tina Turner. Marino acts as the emcee for the production, portraying Joan Rivers and in a variety of her more infamous styles of decades past.
“I am so excited to be working at the Imperial Palace and to be a part of the Harrah’s family. After all doesn’t every Queen need a Palace to call home?” said Marino.
Marino’s “Queens” will be decked out in flamboyant and fabulous costumes by world-renowned wardrobe designer Bob Mackie. Mackie is most famous for designing clothing and costumes for Cher, but has also created masterpieces for an impressive roster of A-list celebrities including Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand and Steve Martin.
Each of the 16 acts is set to a high-energy music medley appropriate to the individual performer. Hollywood’s top set designer Andy Walmsley (creator of sets for American Idol, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire) is creating an all-new custom set that will be unveiled at the Imperial Palace in early 2010.

“I’m thrilled to join with Las Vegas entertainment icon Frank Marino in co-producing one of the biggest and best drag shows of its kind,” said Steck.
