In our world today, we’ve accustomed ourselves to a digital lifestyle; technology is a part of in nearly every aspect of our lives. With each passing year, we continue our venture into new digital territories. Modern innovation is inescapable. But some things like people just cannot be digitized yet.
Try as we might to make a robotic counterpart of the human female (and the innovators do keep trying), there is nothing like a woman’s figure, femininity and sensuality. These organic qualities cannot be replicated—and, here in Las Vegas, the women of Fantasy at Luxor are the embodiment of such qualities.
The women of Fantasy have been at it for more than a dozen years on the Las Vegas Strip, putting on one heck of a revue. Packed with a series of classic fantasies, the production brings desire to the forefront, with an abundance of talent and temptation. In the theater, as the lights dim and the curtain rises, you are promised that “fantasy becomes reality”—and there’s nothing else to do but sit back and enjoy.
Lead singer Jaime Lynch introduces the beautiful women to the audience as she belts out Alicia Keys’ hit “Girl on Fire” and the lovely ladies begin to peel off layers, ending in a sea of topless heaven. Several scenes follow, as we see the ladies dress in everything from lingerie and cowboy boots to leather, lace and G-strings.
Vignettes include scenes on a bed, on top of a piano and on the stripper pole. We see the girls go country, old Hollywood and even rock ’n’ roll, and there’s the music to match it. On point and on time, the quality of dance and choreography that the ladies of Fantasy possess is what sets the bar higher than just being another topless show.
Lynch is another factor; her vocal skills are some of the best in Las Vegas. Be entranced by her renditions of James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” The Police’s “Roxanne” and Gretchen Wilson’s “All Jacked Up.” The ladies also share some stage time in between numbers with comedian Sean E. Cooper. A veteran Las Vegas comic, Cooper’s one-liners, punchlines and impersonations rouse even the most dubious audience members and have them laughing out loud.
The show closes with sweet satisfaction, as the ladies of Fantasy prowl back onstage, ending an evening of what is sexy, sensual, erotic and fleshly pleasurable. Something that only the real women of Fantasy can provide.
