Aubrey O’Day is no stranger to the stage. In addition to performing with her former Danity Kane bandmates , she also clocked some time on Broadway in “Hairspray.” O’Day can’t wait to return to the stage when she makes her Las Vegas debut in “Peepshow” next month.
“I’m so excited to head back to the stage,” she told MTV News. “I’m more excited to be doing ‘Peepshow,’ because it’s a million-dollar production. It’s hard to have these big-budget productions, so I’m so excited to be a part of this huge, brilliant production.”
O’Day also knows a lot about the show’s aesthetic, since she’s spent a good part of her career working on being as sexy as the show itself. “It’s sexy,” she said about the show, which includes burlesque and reimagines several famous fairy tales. “It’s Broadway-caliber dancing and singing.”
O’Day got involved in the project after Jerry Mitchell, who worked with O’Day on “Hairspray,” asked her to audition for the role of Peep Diva. “I came out and auditioned with a few other big starlets, and I got the role,” she recalled. “I’m the storyteller of the show, and I take you through all the different fairy tales.”
Although Aubrey didn’t say how much skin she’d be baring for the part, she did say there is plenty of it going around. “The show is fairy tales meets burlesque, big-budget Vegas, so there’s tons of beautiful dancers with amazing bodies,” she said. “There’s little peeps here and there. The clothes are very sexy. It’s a beautiful production.”
She has yet to speak to the Spice Girls’ Mel B about taking over her role as Peep Diva. “I haven’t spoken to Mel about the show,” she said. “So the advice I think she would probably give me is just to go give it my all.”
