Show Description:

The producers of the Crazy Horse Paris know that anyone can take their clothes off. Any of the MGM shows in Las Vegas could feature that - nudity, in and of itself, no longer holds the fascination it once did, and that stripteases themselves are difficult to change up too drastically, as each dance follows the same plot to its logical conclusion. Thus the creator of the Crazy Horse Paris, originally a French classic, decided to forgo some of the eroticism inherently contained within a topless show and instead focus on art. By introducing revolutionary lighting schemes and experimenting with a mélange of different color projections, the show was elevated to another ideal, and became an instant hit after its inception.

It was inevitable that the Crazy Horse Paris might make its way across the globe to Las Vegas. Though not especially known for its art, it certainly is famous for its access to naked women. So when it became the newest addition to the MGM shows in Las Vegas, no one blinked an eye. Until they saw the production, of course. It immediately became one of the most talked about MGM Grand Las Vegas shows in years, and became synonymous with the shifting influence of art into a number of Las Vegas shows.

The Crazy Horse Paris conforms to age-old ideals about the naked human form, the best example being the kaleidoscopic colors that crawl and dance across the dancers' bodies during some of the slower numbers. There is, of course, some more standard strip tease set pieces, but the real draw of the Crazy Horse Paris is the art, which just happens to use topless women as its canvas.

This isn't Folies Bergere or Jubilee - like you'd expect from MGM shows in Las Vegas, the Crazy Horse Paris goes above and beyond the strict parameters that other Vegas showgirl routines abide by (not that that's necessarily a bad thing), making each new show all the more fascinating and entertaining.

One of the most popular MGM Grand Las Vegas shows in some time, the Crazy Horse Paris runs twice a day (except Tuesdays) at 8 and 10:30 pm.

Show Biography:

The Crazy Horse Paris first saw audiences in 1951. Created by Alain Bernardin, who wanted to build a show that was more than just a series of stripteases while keeping with Paris's reputation for sophistication, Bernardin experimented with all kinds of light and color combinations, along with a vast array of strobe effects and other tricks to shake up the traditional elimination of clothing.

It wasn't until 2001, though, that is was added to the list of MGM Grand Las Vegas shows. At first it went under the name "La Femme" before changing to its current status in 2007, a fitting throwback to its history as a European export. It also keeps with the city's continual attempts to co-opt foreign cultures in order to draw in tourist dollars.
