La Femme Renamed MGM Grand's Crazy Horse Paris

January 15, 2007

MGM Grand's acclaimed cabaret production La Femme changes its name to MGM Grand's Crazy Horse Paris.

The original Crazy Horse in Paris has been an illustrious night spot for the past 55 years and has drawn international and U.S. celebrities over and over again, including Madonna, Warren Beatty, Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, President John F. Kennedy, Christina Aguilera, Prince, Jean Paul Gauthier, Dita Von Teese and Pink.

Crazy Horse Paris is famous for celebrating women in an inimitable, sophisticated and glamorous way. The Crazy Horse show consists of a series of highly aesthetic and visual "tableau vivant" in which exceptionally beautiful and talented dancers perfectly integrate the sensuous choreography of their performances and their spectacular bodies. Each dancer is bathed in richly colored and textured lighting designs. The colors and images from the stunning lighting effects are so overwhelming that it is hard to determine where skin ends and the color reflections begin ... The result is a unique show that engages the mind as much as the eye!

The show at MGM Grand is an exact replica of the acclaimed Crazy Horse in Paris.

The founder of the Crazy Horse, Alain Bernardin, was both inspired 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 70s and 80s. The Crazy Horse combines the best of burlesque and cabaret with the best of Parisian fashion, art and women in an elegant, surprising and totally innovative manner.

"The Crazy Horse legacy is rich in tradition and is recognized worldwide," said MGM Grand Vice President of Entertainment Todd Dougall. "We are proud to be a part of the Crazy Horse history, not only in performance but also in name."

Philippe Lhomme, Chairman and CEO of Crazy Horse Paris explain, "It is our desire to carry on the tradition of the original creator of Crazy Horse, Alain Bernardin. It is essential all of our venues including Las Vegas carry on the name to reflect our image of a highly creative and innovative company."

MGM Grand's Crazy Horse Paris performs nightly at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., dark Tuesdays. Guests must be at least 18 years of age to attend the show. Tickets are priced at $59 inclusive and can be purchased at MGM Grand ticketing outlets, by phone at (702) 891-7777 or online at
