After 50 years on the stage, the classic Parisian revue Les Folies Bergere will conclude its residency at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, on March 28. The performance schedule will continue as usual through the end of the engagement.
Les Folies Bergere opened on December 24, 1959, under Entertainment Director Lou Walters, father of news correspondent Barbara Walters, and came directly from Paris to the Tropicana. Tickets for the remaining shows begin as low as $35 (plus applicable taxes and surcharges) and are available through the Tropicana Box Office.
“Folies Bergere enjoyed an amazing and unprecedented run on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Ron Thacker, Tropicana Las Vegas president, in a statement. “We are extremely proud to have been part of such an iconic Las Vegas production and offer a sincere thank you to the cast, crew and support staff for their many years of excellence.”
Tropicana Las Vegas, which opened in 1957, is currently in discussion with producers and will reveal definitive plans for the 850-seat Tiffany Theater in the coming weeks.
