Toxic Audio does Vegas

BroadwayWorld.com:

With more than 200 Off-Broadway performances presented to enthusiastic audiences of all ages, Toxic Audio has made its mark on the New York theatre scene and now will present "Toxic Audio- Live At The Luxor" for a Special Limited Engagement in the Atrium Showroom at Luxor Las Vegas. This new show will continue the Toxic Audio tradition of "exploring the boundaries of the human voice" and will open August 19 and run at 8 p.m. through November 16.

Created by Jeremy James, Shalisa James, Michelle Mailhot-Valines, Rene Ruiz, Paul Sperrazza, and John Valines III, Toxic Audio features the varied talents of very unique vocalists who amazingly use no instruments other than the human voice to create complex sonic textures, rhythmic drumbeats, thumping bass lines and searing guitar-like solos. In an eclectic mix of contemporary songs, comedy classics, jazz-scat and vocally orchestrated original compositions, their mouths mimic drums, guitars and horns and even turn a cough and a sneeze into an groovy backbeat.

Their 2004 NY Off-Broadway show "Toxic Audio in Loudmouth" won the Drama Desk Award for "Outstanding Unique Theatrical Experience". It was rated the No. 1 audience recommended show in the Wall Street Journal Zagat Theatre Survey. The New York Times called it "Sure-fire fun!" Tickets are $41.79 and can be purchased by calling the Luxor box office at (702) 262-4900.

Schedule is as follows:-

August 19 - September 1: 8 p.m. Except Mondays
September 3 - 5: 8 p.m.
September 16 - 28: 8 p.m.
October 1 & 2: 8 p.m.
