LAS VEGAS (AP) - The producer of a shuttered Las Vegas Strip show that featured stylized circus-style after-dinner performances is accusing the casino-hotel that hosted it of sabotaging its short life.
"Vegas Nocturne" producer Spiegelworld CSC LLC alleges in a breach-of-contract lawsuit filed Wednesday that The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas failed to pay severance to show employees and attempting to block the show from moving to a competing venue.
The lawsuit claims hotel management company Nevada Property 1 LLC owes Spiegelworld some $500,000, failed to return props and costumes, and failed to prevent misappropriation of show funds.
Cosmopolitan officials issued a statement promising to defend the hotel from what they called a meritless lawsuit.
Vegas Nocturne opened on New Year's Eve and closed July 12 at the restaurant and entertainment nightspot Rose. Rabbit. Lie.
