Showgirl Topless Revue Closes in Las Vegas, After 49 Years

The topless revue "Les Folies Bergere" has hung up its feathers after 49 years at the Tropicana hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

Many performers who had taken part in the show's 29,000 runs since Christmas of 1959 crowded the set after its final curtain yesterday.

The closing leaves Bally's "Jubilee!" as the last full-scale showgirl revue left on the Las Vegas Strip.

Daniel Celario, a comedian who performed in the show with his brother on and off from 1986 to 2000, says it was "like a big family" and like going to work at the office with a lot of people you like."

He married a dancer who is now the entertainment director for the casino.
