Skintight’s Darryl Ross Is The Triple Threat of Vegas Adult Shows – He can sing, he can dance and he can act. He is Darryl Ross, a “triple-threat” entertainer, who since 2001 works the stage with the cast of Skintight at Harrah’s Las Vegas.

Starring in Skintight, alongside Shannon O’Keefe, Ross surely keeps this cast “skin-tight” by meshing his stunning looks with his off the charts octave range and his soulful and sensual jazz background.

As if excellence in the performance of the arts were not enough, Ross was also an accomplished wide receiver for the Dukes, of the James Madison University in Virginia. Ross has starred in the motion picture “Toy Soldiers,” performed in “A Chorus Line” and co-starred with Frank Gorshin in “New York, New York,” before finding a home with Greg Thompson’s Skintight in 2001.

Bearing his American pride, Ross has performed for the U.S. troops in South Korea, Japan, Iwo Jima and Pearl Harbor. Since his Las Vegas debut, Ross has also been featured in a number of Playboy revues, wrote and recorded albums and has performed alongside rap artists like Run DMC and Ludacris.

Ross performs nightly with the cast of Skintight in the Clint Holmes Theater at Harrah’s Las Vegas.

FEATURE STORY: Skintight at Harrah’s

Skintight is 70 minutes of high gloss breasts and brawn, feathers and jiggle with a heavy Latin / Tribal musical influence. It is one of the new set of Las Vegas shows that doesn’t pretend to be anything but a show filled with fantasy to arouse and amuse.

The star of the show is Playboy Playmate October 1985 Cynthia Brimhall whose performance as emcee is warm and interesting enough, although she’s probably along for the ride for her marquee value more than any specific talent she lends to the show.

Skintight appears to be a reasonably blatant attempt to cross a “Vegas show” with one of the numerous strip clubs that dot the tourism area of town, and it succeeds. The Romanesque staging is interesting, providing a decent backdrop for a show that isn’t meant to require much thought.

One of the scenes actually involves bringing five men from the audience up onstage for simulated lap dances from the dancers, and one lucky attendee gets a personal dance from Miss Brimhall. While interesting, it stops short of being the bump and grind of a “gentleman’s club.”

The dancing is well choreographed and there is a fair amount of Vegas-style (after all, it is in Las Vegas) entertainment with a featured female singer (who keeps her clothes on) and segments featuring dance to songs like Ricky Martin’s “La Vida Loca” and such. The audience contained plenty of couples, and I imagine the fit male dancers (who at one point strip down to g-strings) were reasonable eye-candy for the ladies.
