Showgirl's Life | Where Vintage Vegas Glamour meets Immersive Celebrations | Showgirl in Paris

A recent trip to Paris, France for a Showgirl reunion and then the Nevada State Museum in Las Vegas for the Showgirl Exhibit, reignited my passion for the history of the Showgirl.

There is plenty of information out there about the producers and designers that created the shows, but very few stories of all the glamazons that graced the stages of those spectaculars and how they got there. It’s intriguing to me!!!

I have decided to launch a platform for real Showgirls to share their stories of their former glamour days to the world. In my podcast, Showgirl’s Life, I will be interviewing Showgirls (and Showboys!) from the heyday of Las Vegas Showgirl spectaculars (1950s-1990s.)

We have all had the privilege of making Las Vegas history! Please accommodate anyone interested in preserving the period, particularly oral history…so important to hear the real poop from all of us!
