This is one show you absolutely cannot afford to miss! The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies, a Broadway-caliber celebration of music, dance, and comedy of the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s; is currently in its 23rd and final season titled, “The Last Hurrah!”
Since 1992, the Follies have been attracting crowds and stealing the heats of dance and music-lovers everywhere, and have been seen by more than three million patrons to date. An entirely new show is presented each season, and the performances celebrate the music and dance of Mid-Century America with a cast ranging in age from 55 to 84 years “young”. The show features extravagant production numbers dripping in the glamour and style of Broadway; and in 1997, the Palm Springs Follies was even the subject of an Oscar-nominated short documentary entitled “Still Kicking: The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies.”
“Everyone must absolutely see this show at least once,” said local, Michael Martinez, after his experience at “The Last Hurrah!” “One of the highlights of my life!” agreed Donna Leonard. “It was extraordinary! I’m going again on Saturday!”
