    I wonder if Joy Jenkins is played by the same person who plays Penny Pibbets.

    No, someone else plays Joy. I believe she was the stand-in when Penny was out. If they are indeed re-casting Gaz, I'll be incredibly sad. Those two are what tie the entire show together.

    I'll definitely be seeing Penny's new show whenever I get back to Vegas.

    Keep in mind Penny gave that interview in character. Her and the Gaz always appear in character at interviews and put out so much spin you pretty much have to see it all as part of the show. As such, she has not necessarily left Absinthe at all.

    I've seen Absinthe 5 times. It's one of my go-to shows when I've got friends in town and I want to take them out to something they wouldn't normally see in Las Vegas. When it comes to characters, the main thing for me is that Melody Sweets stays on.

    Well, I was wondering how Penny was going to be doing Absinthe while she was doing her solo show. . . . now I know.

    When I see her show on 12/30/2014, I think I'll have a better idea as to whether she's "really" going solo or not.

    BTW... anyone wondering what Penny and the Gazillionaire look like when they are not playing Penny or The G.
    Check out this video from Penny Pibbets site. Posting youtube link. Thats Penny as the chick on the bar, and the gazillionaire sitting talking to her.

    There was a different Gazillionaire when we went last May. Is that going to be the new one?

    The current Gazzillionaire was there when the show opened, did a year and then left to do another gig for awhile, and then came back when Caesars setup the permanent tent.

    We had a different Gazillionaire when I was there last May. I just assumed it was the understudy or the normal one needed a night off.

    Saw the show last night, Joy and Gaz worked the crowd. I assume this will be the way it is while Penny does her own show.

    We saw Empire in NYC before it went off to tour the world.
    The show was great. It had the same feel as Absinthe, but it's a fairly different show.
    There is a one man band and a singer that is hotter than Melody Sweets! (Yes, I just said AND meant that!!!)

    Looking for some guidance. I have seen the show 2 times, with the last time being 2 years ago. We are coming to town in July with a bunch of friends. My question is if the show is still as good as we remember. Concerned that with a new cast, it might not be. Last year, we went to Rose.Rabbit.Lie, thinking it would be close to Absinthe's entertainment value, but we were disappointed in the acts (except for Butterscotch). Thanks in advance.
