MGM's Crazy Horse Paris
MGM's Crazy Horse Paris is a cabaret show unlike anything I had seen before. The set, the lighting, the costumes and the choreography are all designed for maximum creative impact. Based on the original french Crazy Horse cabaret, the show has a european avant-garde flavor.
The dancers must conform to certain requirements i.e. height between 5'5" and 5'7", so there is not a lot of room for diversity. But there is definitely something compelling in seeing rows of dancers in the bare minimum of sexy attire with the only obvious variations being the shades of brightly hued wigs.
French women are known for their confident sexy style, and the dancers in this show embody that essence. The solo performers are unforgettable.
