Scarlett was known as “The Princess of Magic” when she performed a family-friendly afternoon show that ran six days a week in Planet Hollywood’s V Theater. Her act has a new home and a very different name.
“Scarlett and the Seductive Ladies of Magic” sounds less family-friendly but nonetheless interesting.
We suppose a show featuring a beautiful redhead and topless female assistants could be family-friendly but probably not the kind of family you would want to live near.
While Scarlett studied dance for ten years and is no stranger to the stage, she entered the world of magic just a few years ago.
Working first as an assistant to Reno magician Jon Andrew and then his student, Scarlett made her Las Vegas debut last August.
She received high marks from the V Theater’s show producer, David Saxe.
Mr. Saxe knows something about magic and female magicians. His sister is Inside Magic favorite Melinda Saxe.
Mr. Saxe told The Las Vegas Sun last summer:
“She totally reminds me of my sister,” says Saxe, who produced Melindafor 16 years as well as the all-female “Showgirls of Magic” at the San Remo (now Hooters hotel). “She has a presence I like.”
Saxe was impressed with her eagerness to learn and to get her career going, not taking the usual path of becoming a specialty act.
“It was a little aggressive of her to start off with a full show, but that’s the way Melinda did it in 1987.
Those are big high heels to fill. (Not “big” like Melinda had big feet, just “big” like significant).
She received a Merlin Award from Tony Hassini and the International Magicians Society last November. She has come a long way and she has only been old enough to drink for two years.
We look forward to reviews of Scarlett and hope to give our own critical evaluation upon our next trip to Vegas. She begins her run on July 1st.
