Unless you live under a rock or haven't been able to find a Wi-Fi signal in a week, then you already know about Coco's new gig in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino's longest running live show, Peepshow.  She will be filling in for mom-to-be Holly Madison from December 3 to March 2013. But what you don't know about Peepshow could fill a…blog. It could fill a blog. This is that blog.

Peepshow delivers on its erotic name, serving up sultry dances, stripper poles and scantily clad performers. Visitlasvegas.com describes it as "a highly stylized, full-throttle modern burlesque show that combines sexy striptease and celebrity with high-level production values and a dash of passion." That description remind you of anybody?

Coco is stepping into the lead role of Bo Peep, a timid woman who ventures on a quest for sexual empowerment. The journey takes her through a fantasy land based on nursery rhymes, with familiar characters like Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, and, only naturally, Peter Pumpkin Eater. Something tells us these childhood figures have grown up.

Peepshow is a collective effort between Tony award-winning director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell and BASE Entertainment. Some of Mitchell's credits include choreographing The Full Monty as well as choreographing and directing Legally Blonde: The Musical—which makes total sense since Peepshow is basically a combination of the two.

 

The show opened in 2009 starring Playboy Playmate Kelly Monaco and Spice Girl Melanie Brown. Since then the cast's long list of stars has also included Danity Kane/The Apprentice's Aubrey O'Day.

The last thing you need to know about Peepshow is that the Bo Peep character has fully topless moments, meaning Coco will be showing her cocos to a live audience on a nightly basis. And on that note, we need to go pre-order our tickets.
