MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris, Las Vegas’ sensual French cabaret, will commemorate the popular show’s 10-year anniversary with a weekend celebration by welcoming well-known Las Vegas on-air personality, Steph MacKenzie, for a one-night engagement Saturday, May 21. MacKenzie will take the stage during the 8 p.m. performance.
The visually stimulating review, originating from Paris, France’s original Le Crazy Horse de Paris, is proud to share 10 years in chorus with its Paris’ sister show’s 60-year anniversary. The international Crazy Horse Paris’ dancers, all classically trained, have entertained patrons across the globe.
The festive weekend will kick off with promotional giveaways and conclude with MacKenzie participating in three of MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris’ sexy artistic numbers at the exclusive 8 p.m. show. Guests may purchase 2-for-1 tickets for a 97.1-FM KXPT radio price of $97.10 through the MGM Grand Box Office.
MacKenzie said, “To be a part of the historic and classy show in Las Vegas during the show’s 10-year celebration is a dream come true! I am a true fan of this show and I’m overwhelmed with the opportunity to channel my energy and creativity and point my entertainment career towards the big stage with the well known dancers of MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris.”
Early risers and Vegas commuters know Steph MacKenzie as the co-host of the highly acclaimed 97.1 The Point Morning Show titled, “FOXX AND MACKENZIE.” A radio veteran of 19 years, MacKenzie has interviewed celebrities including Elton John, Heart and Def Leppard. MacKenzie, a big-hearted philanthropist in the Las Vegas community, spends much of her free time assisting charities including the American Cancer Society, Speedway Children’s Charities, MS Society, Ronald McDonald House and New Vista Community. Mackenzie’s vivacious personality also is featured on the television station CW Las Vegas, and she can often be seen reporting from the sidelines of high school games on MYLVTV’s “Thursday Night Lights.” Her involvement in the community makes her the ideal local partner to help celebrate the show’s milestone.
The original Crazy Horse in Paris has been a cultural phenomenon since its inception in 1951, and has drawn international and U.S. celebrities including Madonna, Warren Beatty, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, President John F. Kennedy and Pink. The show inspired actress Demi Moore in the movie Striptease, and influenced Christina Aguilera’s music as well as motivated her to take a starring role in the film Burlesque.
MacKenzie joins an incredible group of celebrities to have taken the stage as guest performers at MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris. Past entertainers have included 2011 Playboy Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair, Dita Von Teese, Pamela Anderson, Arielle Dombasle and Carmen Electra.
The founder of the Crazy Horse, Alain Bernardin, was moved by the great American show girls such as Lili St Cyr, Clara Bow and Betty Grable, and by the highly creative and productive French art scene of the 70’s and 80’s. The Crazy Horse Paris dancers create a moving canvas with the glamorous Parisian fashion and textured lighting that engage the mind as much as the eye.
