From their first meeting at the open call of Starlight Express at the Las Vegas Hilton, Trent and Trudy Lee were destined to become showbiz legends. Trudy Lee is a perennially perky belter and former Barbizon model with big hair and an even bigger personality. Mustachioed Trent is the flamboyantly foppish man with whom Trudy Lee shares a non-consummated monogamous Christian-based love.
Straight from their long-running gig at the San Remo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, A TOUCH OF VEGAS is their life in song (accompanied on piano by Liberace protégé Mr. Raymond Bernie) and story. Blissfully ignorant of anything beyond the Christian show-biz norm, this winsome duo delights audiences with politically incorrect tales of their glory days in Vegas with the likes of Charo, Phyllis Diller and Sinbad as they weave their way through unique renditions of songs including “Conga, “ “Man in the Mirror,” “9 to 5,” and “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off.” Fortunately for audiences, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!
Trent and Trudy Lee are the creations of Kyle Barisich and Genna Ambatielos, respectively. The duo originally met as undergrads at The University of Southern California working on a production of Merrily We Roll Along. They have been fine-tuning A TOUCH OF VEGAS since 2000. In addition to extended runs in 2002 and 2005 at Dominion NY, they have also been seen in Hollywood at the legendary Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
