Imagine seeing a performance by your favorite boy band, and then at the end they take off all of their clothes? That is now a reality with Marissa DeLeon’s new show. I talked to Marissa about this amazing male revue show that has caught fire in a bottle.
VL: How did you come up with this concept?
MD: I was the creative director for a male revue show. I wanted to mix it up a bit and told the GM of the show my ideas. He hated them, so I quit and decided to branch out on my own. I always loved boy bands and the girls who were into those bands are now grown up and of age. So I decided to put together this Boy Band Revue Show! Within a few months, we were sold out. As of today, we are completely sold out for the next 6 months. We are considering adding late shows to accommodate all of the requests.
VL: So basically you have NSYNC, New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, and other boy band impersonators and then they strip at the end?
MD: Not just at the end! The whole thing is choreographed by a former choreographer for some of the biggest artists in the world. It is a lot of fun, and really brings the ladies back to their younger days.
VL: What is the best part of the show? What makes these girls go wild?
MD: When they do “Backstreet’s Back” they go crazy! Especially when they sing the line “Am I sexual?” The roof gets blown off of the house! Also “Bye Bye Bye” is great too! They whole thing is a lot of fun!
VL: Do you plan on taking this thing on tour or to Vegas? It sounds like you have a major hit on your hands.
MD: Funny you say that! We were approached by a huge hotel on the strip that was trying to figure out the logistics of having us as a nightly show. We are definitely interested, but business is so good that it would have to be a deal that really blew us away to move the show.
VL: All the best of luck to you! This is a fun show that the ladies need to see!
MD: Thanks! And as we ay to close out the show… Bye Bye Bye!
