LAS VEGAS – This Saturday October 13, the Erotic Heritage Museum will celebrate its 10th anniversary with an evening of bawdy entertainment and Halloween-themed fun. With the museum decked out with a “Glam Gore” theme, visitors will be treated to a discounted $10 admission fee throughout the day.
“How does one reflect on a decade adequately?” mused EHM Executive Director Dr. Victoria Hartmann, reflecting on the occasion. “So much has happened, and more is still to come.”
Hartmann added that over the last 10 years, the EHM “has changed and grown alongside this wonderful city.”
“We’ve met phenomenal guests, scholars, and famous folks, collaborated with stellar institutions, and been fortunate enough to continue our work,” Hartmann said. “As Las Vegas’ only Museum to explore the depth of breadth of Erotic Heritage, we are excited to see the next decade unfold and thank everyone who has supported us. There is much more to explore – come and join the celebration and help us usher in the next 10 years!”
To drive home the horror-tinged theme, a blood-red player piano will drench the EHM lobby with ambient music leading into the evening’s entertainment. As the autopiloted piano plays its tunes, guests are invited to browse the museum, visit the Lobby Library and Museum Gift Shop and take photos at the EHM Chapel. Drinks will flow at a cash champagne and wine bar, and a “tongue-in-cheek” snack bar will be offered by the Las Vegas-based burlesque duo The Roomatez.
From 8pm to 9:30, Puppetry of the Penis will perform – a spectacle from Down Under which has been labeled “the Australian Art of Genital Origami” which has been performed to the delight of audiences around the world. To purchase tickets for Puppetry of the Penis, visit this page.
After the conclusion of Puppetry of the Penis, EHM’s summer residency “FreakShow!” will return for one night only, to provide the evening’s late-night entertainment, running from 10pm to midnight. A popular, dark comedy variety show, FreakShow! is hosted by Tuesday Thomas and Cyrus Naderpour. The show recently celebrated its third year of sold-out shows in Los Angeles and is driven by its hosts’ ongoing quest to find bizarre and hilarious acts to delight their loyal audiences.
