LAS VEGAS, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spiegelworld CSC, LLC ("Spiegelworld"), producer of some of the world's best live entertainment performances, today sued casino operator The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for allegedly sabotaging its critically-acclaimed Vegas Nocturne show, failing to pay agreed upon severance to show employees, and attempting to block the show from moving to a competing venue.
The lawsuit, filed in Nevada's Clark County District Court, also accuses The Cosmopolitan of taking show property, including costumes, props and staging, and failing to take action to prevent the misappropriation of show funds which were wrongfully used to pay for a contractor's personal activities, including funding visits to strip clubs.
The complaint, filed on August 6, 2014, alleges that The Cosmopolitan's management company, Nevada Property 1, LLC, violated several terms of its agreements with Spiegelworld, including the early termination of its world renowned vaudeville show, Vegas Nocturne at Rose. Rabbit. Lie supper club on July 13. Spiegelworld is asking the court to force The Cosmopolitan to perform under the terms of the contracts and cease attempts to block Vegas Nocturne from moving to a new venue.
"The Cosmopolitan has repeatedly failed to act in good faith, choosing instead to violate the terms of our contract," said Ross Mollison, founder and producer of Spiegelworld.
The Blackstone Group, L.P., which on May 15 announced an agreement to buy The Cosmopolitan, is not a party to the action.
Along with Vegas Nocturne, Spiegelworld's roster includes the sensation Absinthe on the forecourt of Caesers Palace, Las Vegas, and Empire, which launched in Tokyo in July after its World Premiere in New York in 2012, and a standing-room-only two-year Australian tour.
