Johnny Boy cannot wait for ORCHID, the US debut show opening in Miami's Design District. It's part Moulin Rouge, part Cirque du Soleil, and at the center of The Pleasure Garden, a hedonistic live entertainment experience complete with design, fashion, performance art, music, and an on-site restaurant / bar.
The brainchild of wunderkind Marty LaSalle, known for being 1/2 of the super cool twin juggling duo that traveled the world. Obviously since he's an identical twin, we immediately connected and his passion for the project and the team he's compiled is astonishing for someone so young.
At the helm of the show is director William Baker, whom has worked with Rihanna, Britney Spears, and Kylie Minogue. He's created a fantasy world where the main character Orchid will be traveling through different scenery's, with mash ups from current popular musical artist, all inside an intimate antique "mirror-tent", adorned with stained glass, red velvet, and chandeliers...just look at the image of the on-site restaurant, totally 19th century pleasure garden, and Johnny Boy hears one of our local celebrity will be creating the delicacies served here (Hint: She just opened a new restaurant on the beach)
