CIRQUE GOES ALL OUT FOR ONE DROP

Cirque du Soleil did its big One Night for One Drop charity production Friday night at the O Theatre in partnership with Lamborghini, yet it didn’t feature one single supercar swinging gracefully through the air on a trapeze. What a wasted opportunity.

It all started with a cocktail reception at Hyde, where the celebs got to loosen up before the chow. There to check things out were, as we already mentioned, Britney Spears–plus Michael Phelps, Missy Franklin, Shania Twain, Pam Anderson, Criss Angel, Claire Sinclair, Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T’s, Olympic rowers Mary Whipple and Erin Cafaro, Holly Madison, Coco Austin and Kyle Richards.

Once the show got rolling, it featured Jackie Evancho, Victoria’s Secret model Orluchi Orlandi and a composition from Danny Elfman. Which we assume means this entire production is being featured in the next Tim Burton movie.

Afterward, everyone reconvened at the Bellagio pool where The Canadian Tenors performed. You can catch a broadcast of the whole shindig at OneDrop.org through March 31 with a $5 donation.
