Folies Bergere Takes Final Bow

Les Folies Bergere, the classic Parisian revue, will end its nearly half-century run at the Tropicana Las Vegas on March 28, 2009. The show will continue its regular performance schedule for the remainder of the engagement.

Folies Bergere opened on December 24, 1959 under Entertainment Director, Lou Walters — father of news correspondent Barbara Walters — and came direct from Paris to the Tropicana. The show has continued to entertain audiences from around the world through the present day.

“Folies Bergere enjoyed an amazing and unprecedented run on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Ron Thacker, Tropicana Las Vegas President. “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.”

Tickets for the Folies Bergere begin as low as $35 plus tax and surcharge and are available at the Tropicana Box Office or by calling 702-739-2411.

Tropicana Las Vegas is currently in discussion with prominent producers and will reveal its definitive plans for the Tiffany Theater in the coming weeks.
