Going and Still Not Coming

After 11 years at MGM Grand, Crazy Horse Paris is set to have its final performance Oct. 1, meaning Dita Von Teese will need to find a new place in town to come do burlesque. No, really. Someone please find her a spot sometime soon.

No word yet on what’s going to take over the newly vacant showroom space, but presumably it would be another nightlife option to join the upcoming Hakkasan in the former Sudio 54 spot.

As for Crazy Horse Paris, the gals “will be carefully packing away its iconic show in order to prepare for a new Las Vegas adventure, as well as its upcoming U.S. tour,” according to a news release. There will be a Crazy Horse production in a London Spiegeltent on Sept. 19, which we suppose opens the possibility for some MGM-answer-to-Absinthe Strip tent production in the future.

Meanwhile, Tropicana’s pool/night/supper club Bagatelle has pushed its opening back until at least mid-October. It was originally expected to be open for Memorial Day.
