According to her Twitter, Shoshana will be performing in Columbus, OH's Union Cafe on September 19 (a gay bar). No clue about tickets - you probably just have to be there early enough if you want a table. lol

Keep an eye on their site though - maybe they'll have more info:

You can also listen to a live interview with her beginning in just 8 minutes at 10 pm ET:

While Mr. Vegas DeLuxe Robin Leach is on vacation and attempting to work as little as possible from afar, Vegas DeLuxe will be featuring celebrity guest columnists for the first half of this month until Robin’s return. If you’re familiar with Las Vegas entertainment, the names should be familiar. Today, we start it off with Broadway singer, actress and dancer Shoshana Bean, star of Peepshow in Planet Hollywood.

By Shoshana Bean

I’ve only been here a short month and have barely begun to experience all that Las Vegas has to offer. I’m not even certain that my three-month run here will be enough time to really become a Vegas veteran. But I will admit to being somewhat of a creature of habit.

That said, I have already fallen in love with so many places that will be difficult to part from when I leave in September. I’ve narrowed it down to my Vegas Top 10.

Thank you, Las Vegas, for taking such good care of me!

XOXO,

Shoshana
