Folies Bergere is on its last legs.
Folies on its last legs after 49-year Strip run
In a knock-us-over-with-a-feather news break, a show closing for the ages has been announced today: The venerable Folies Bergere, a mainstay on the Strip since Dec. 24, 1959, is closing March 28. There is no announcement yet as to what will replace the city’s sequins-cancan-feathered boa spectacle at the hotel’s Tiffany Theater. Trop officials do have plans in the works for new, permanent production in the showroom and are in the latter stages of negotiations for that show.
At its peak, Folies entertained some 40,000 fans a month at the Trop and was for generations one of Vegas’ signature production shows.
