That's right, the fabulous Palm Springs Follies is closing its doors at the end of this season. After 23 years as the finest entertainment attraction in Palm Springs, California, the Follies will soon be gone. It is a remarkable evening of entertainment that will not likely be duplicated anywhere ever again.
If you are wondering why it is such a special show all you have to know is that the productions are really top quality and that the youngest person in the cast is 55. Maybe. I say maybe because the youngest you can be to audition for the show, but I'm not certain if they have anyone that young currently performing. If you're curious you can call or send them an email and they'll let you know. I do know that a few years ago I did see the Guinness World Record holder for oldest showgirl performing at 87 and she was terrific. But, don't expect to see a lot of wrinkles - these gals look great - and you can see for yourself in the attached slideshow and video.
If you want to see the show in person, though, you have to hurry. I'm betting that there will be a lot of sold out performances during this final season so you need to make your plans as soon as you can. It's not a bad drive from Albuquerque to Palm Springs but long enough that you might want to break it down into maybe 6 hours one day and 4 the next. Get a group together and have a party. Rent a van and share the driving - it will be a trip to remember for a long time and you'll never have another chance to see this terrific show. Once you see these talented entertainers it might even encourage you to change your lifestyle, shed some pounds and begin working on a healthier life.
Take a trip to Palm Springs and . . . Keep on Traveling!
