Frank Marino and his Divas Las Vegas Show
is perhaps the most well-known female impersonator of the last century! Dubbed Ms. Las Vegas for his longtime starring role as Joan Rivers in the Las Vegas drag revue Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas, playing at the Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino.
Famous for his lavish on-stage wardrobe (much of which was designed by Bob Mackie, who has also done fashions for Rivers), Marino has received two Las Vegas Walk of Fame stars as well as having a street named after him when Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman honored his hard work and commitment to the Las Vegas performance world with “Frank Marino Day” on February 1, 2005.
Marino has been playing Joan Rivers in Las Vegas drag shows since 1985 and holds the record for the longest continuous performance run at a single casino in Las Vegas when he played Rivers for more than 20 years at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in the long-running drag show An Evening at La Cage.
He actually now holds the record as the longest-active and longest-running headliner on the Strip. He has appeared both as his Joan Rivers persona and as himself in several movies and TV shows. Once sued by Rivers for $5,000,000 (US) in the 1990s. The pair have since reconciled and have even appeared on TV shows together.
This 75 minute energetic show features an all star cast of superstar female impersonators who not only recreate but almost uncannily duplicate the likeness of stars ranging from Britney Spears to Cher and Diana Ross to Beyoncé even Madonna and Dolly Parton have been known to stop by.
Meanwhile Marino – in his role as the show’s emcee and star – changes between every act bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with each spectacular entrance!
