Siegfried on What?s Next

 

 

Mike Weatherford?s column in the Las Vegas Review Journal follows Siegfried back to the stage where he and Roy started; literally and metaphorically. 

 

Siegfried was back to the Stardust in August as he prepared for the beginning of a new show but not one that he or Roy would star in.  It was the same stage where the duo began their meteoric rise in the Lido de Paris. 

 

Siegfried told Mr. Weatherford the stage smelled the same and ?In my dressing room, it’s still the same wallpaper. It made me feel very at home.?

 

Havana Night Club was opening for what was planned to be a limited run.  Siegfried and Roy put up the money for Nicole Durr and her outstanding show featuring Cuban dancers and musicians.  Last week most of the show defected to the United States and extended their run. 

 

“We haven’t stopped, we only stepped back to leave a little space for new talent,” he told some of the interviewers.

 

The columnist points out, however, that the duo?s home at the Mirage is no more.  In mid-2006, the stage will be gone and in its place will be stadium seating for the new Cirque du Soleil show. 

 

Mr. Weatherford asks ?who would have thought the old Stardust stage would outlast the audacious Mirage showroom that opened in 1990??

 

Siegfried is more…

Siegfried is more philosophical: “It’s just the time where we live today.  Nothing is forever and time changes so fast, especially in show business. Especially in Las Vegas.?
