Onyx Theatre

Get Down Onyx

Shakespeare and Sex Shops

Vegas has cheesy impersonators, aging pop stars and giant Broadway classics—and we love Vegas for it. But every now and then we crave something a little more culturally inclined (but still Vegas-y of course).
 
Something that may involve a stage and...a sex shop.
 
Welcome to the Onyx Theatre, a hidden treasure of the Las Vegas arts scene.
 
While the kink shops and swingers clubs surrounding the Onyx may not be your usual destination for a night out in Sin City (at least not officially...), Onyx's theatrical sendups may be just what you need to shake things up.
 
But be warned: We're not talking Hamlet here. 7 Blowjobs, Cannibal! The Musical and Lysistrata have all graced the Onyx stage, plus a no-holds-barred interpretation of Shakespeare complete with cellophane-clad actresses. The theater itself is small (there's only 100 seats) and off the beaten path, but always chock full of insiders and big-time performers on the sly.
 
Slated for the 2008-2009 season are Kafka's Morphotic, American Buffalo and Reefer Madness, to name a few. You may even catch a Cirque du Soleil performer blowing off steam and showcasing a side project.
 
And by blowing off steam, we mean...never mind.
