“Fantasy” at the Luxor.

Party planning for the 16th anniversary of the adult burlesque revue “Dream” at the Luxor is underway. In reality, the stunning beauty ladies shot their sexy pictures for the 2016 calendar last week.

Producer-director Anita Mann tells me that there will certainly be a calendar launch party Oct. 20 to mark the 10th year of the cheeky calendar, and the curvy cast will certainly commemorate their real 16th anniversary Nov. 1.

“This year, we selected a genuine after-dark dream,” stated Anita. “A dream underwear shoot inside LAX at our home hotel.” Our thanks to contributing photographer Tom Donoghue, who was welcomed to catch our saucy preview. A DVD from the calendar shoot likewise will be launched.

Looking back over 16 amazing years, Anita said: “I count my true blessings every day. I’m so extremely thankful that we’ve had this excellent run, and I still get thrilled with every program every night.

“On our birthday, we will introduce 4 brand-new numbers. We have 12 girls in rotation in the cast. 8 are always in the show, and four are swing dancers due to the fact that we are seven nights a week, 52 weeks a year.

“Jaime Lynch is still our major vocalist performing four or five nights a week, and then our former lead Lorena Peril is back with us, along with Lily Arce on the other nights of the week.

“It’s interesting to have Lorena return after her European show trip. She’s singing with her hubby now in Las Vegas, and we have her back in between times.

I asked Anita why her show has actually had such a long, successful run.

“Our audiences actually associate with the cast more than any other show with an intimacy, an experience not found anywhere else. There’s a great deal of adult cabaret to choose from in Las Vegas, but we’ve been continuous with the showgirl part.

“The big shows lost. We lost ‘Folies Bergere,’ we lost ‘Into the Night.’ ‘Peepshow’ was a great adult program, but it, too, was in a bigger showroom.

” ‘Jubilee’ is still there, and I hope permanently, but our ‘Dream’ dancers are much closer having fun with our audience. The adult shows that have lasted for many years are because of being more intimate.

“Our cast gets better and better, and their talents actually reveal individually. Their interaction also gets better weekly. It works because it’s my mommy’s preferred show, and she’s 89!

“So ‘Dream’ is for audiences of any ages and certainly for couples. The people and the ladies enjoy the show, so both leave as winners.

“I believe our biggest obstacle with time was when MGM took over the Luxor. We needed to alter from ‘Midnight Fantasy’ to just ‘Fantasy,’ so we had to alter the whole show. We ‘d rehearse by day and slowly alter the show each night.

“When we opened 16 years earlier as a ‘family-friendly adult show,’ we understood that it wasn’t going to be all over-the-top sex. We’ve kept the variety home entertainment element that couples could associate with conveniently.

“We carefully keep a balance. It’s not just in-your-face nudity right from the start. We keep it attractive, not outright. I never ever desire it to be in your face. It’s everything about the showgirls’ effort and devotion to real show-business home entertainment skills.

“The other programs don’t a lot copy us but have a various design in providing it. The copycats don’t disturb me. Our show exists solely to please the audience and not worry about the so-called competitors.

“Dancing has actually come back so much on mainstream tv, and TELEVISION has helped preserve dancing, so our opening number is all dance. I want to do the same with our showgirl dancers.The women do not go topless up until the 2nd number.

“Over 16 years, they have actually become part of the fabric of Las Vegas. We’re closing in on a 20th anniversary. That would be fantastic to strike that number and continue onward from there.”

Two-time Emmy Award candidate Mandy Moore is sprucing up the “Fantasy” phase by choreographing the show’s new opening number. Moore (“So You Believe You Can Dance”) is a director, choreographer and dancer. She will take a trip right here to teach the “Fantasy” girls a brand-new regular set to a mashup of Little Mix’s “Salute” and Jordin Stimulates’ “I Am Lady.”

Our guest columns resume Tuesday with Food Network star Ben Vaughn’s weekly tome, “Top Chef” and Border Grill chef Susan Feniger and vocalist Bob Torti, who stars in “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian and offstage has actually won creative kudos for his sculptures.
