“I think what I’m most looking forward to is being the host,” said DiMarco, 27, who is officially the troupe’s first ever deaf celebrity host.

As for what fans can expect, the star said the show is sure to be “a lot of fun.”

“It’s pretty much like a Broadway show, but in Las Vegas. And to headline something like this, to host it in Las Vegas, is such an honor,” he said. “They will see some skin, but if they want to see more they will have to come to the show!”
