Crazy Horse

No, not Chief Crazy Horse of the Lakota Sioux, I mean the Crazy Horse Saloon in Paris.

Yesterday was Valentine's Day and Patrice wanted to do something special for the holiday. Neither of us had been to the legendary cabaret for decades. Would it still be the same? Would it be sexy? The answer to the first question: yes, the show and especially the girls are remarkably true to the image created by Alain Bernadin, who founded the show in 1951. The girls all look alike: all white, all 5'5" - 5'6" tall, small breasts, trained dancers. The show still opens with the same sequence . .
Lots of silhouette images - this one reminds me of early James Bond openings.
Other vignettes are reminiscent of Cirque de Soleil - but it's all pretty softcore.
And the high heels! Check these out. . . .
The verdict? Well, I think we'll wait another 30 years before we go back . . .
