Famous female impersonator does gay icons during Windsor show

By |2018-01-15T17:41:53-05:00August 5th, 2010|Entertainment|

Frank Marino brings his famous female impersonations, including Britney Spears, Madonna and Bette Midler, to Canada at 9 p.m. Aug. 7 in the Colosseum at Caesars Windsor during his 75-minute show. Marino, in his role as the “Divas Las Vegas” show’s emcee and star, changes between every act, bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with each spectacular entrance.
Marino always knew he would become a star, even as a small child growing up in New York. What he didn’t realize was that he’d have to be dressed up in glittering Bob Mackie gowns, and strapped into towering Manolo Blahnik stilettos. And that’s before he gets into his makeup, wigs and jewelry!
“The ladder of success was even harder to climb wearing high heels!” Marino said in a press release.
After 25 years as the star of “An Evening at La Cage,” Marino is an accomplished author, newscaster, columnist and spokesperson, writing a bestseller, “His Majesty, the Queen,” and starring alongside Sandra Bullock in “Miss Congeniality 2.”
In 2005, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman proclaimed Feb. 1 as “Frank Marino Day.” Marino also received a Key to the City, has a street named after him, Frank Marino Drive, and is forever immortalized in the sidewalks of the neon jungle with a star that bears his name on the Las Vegas Walk of Fame.
In 2009, Marino was named Las Vegas’ “Entertainer of the Century,” and after performing to over 10 million people, he is Guinness Book worthy of having the most performances on any Las Vegas stage.
