The Las Vegas Strip is home to great swaths of entertainment history. And some of that entertainment history actually lives on in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
The female revue Crazy Girls, takes place at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. It is billed as the longest running burlesque show in America. The show has been running more than 30 years here in Las Vegas. It is a part of entertainment history.
The host of Crazy Girls is dancer, comedian and singer Dani Elizbaeth. A past CYInterview guest [see here], she is the latest Las Vegas Strip entertainer to speak with us about what has been going on since shows came to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Dani Elizabeth never thought she would end up in Las Vegas for a long period of time. Now, years after arriving in the glittering entertainment mecca in the Mojave Desert, she has become one of the most well-known dancers in town. The Crazy Girls host shared this with us:
“I thought I would just be in Las Vegas for six months since it’s like, you know what? I just want to put it down on my resume to say, ‘I was a professional dancer, I had a salary and I went to work every night dancing and being on stage.’ And now almost eight years later here I am hosting Crazy Girls and dancing in Crazy Girls and still loving every moment of the Las Vegas life and performer lifestyle.”
On what it will mean to return to performing in Crazy Girls at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, she told us this:
“I feel like when we get back and have that first moment on stage, there’s going to be a bit of an emotional moment because I’ve always been grateful for what I do because I know the job that I do is something that a lot of people are still striving to do and audition all the time to be able to perform on a stage, especially on a stage in Las Vegas. So I just want everyone to know that when they come that I am so grateful for people buying tickets for our show, coming to see us, supporting us and also enjoying what they’re watching because I guarantee I’m probably enjoying it just as much as everybody else in the audience.”
Featured columnist Jay Bildstein joins us to speak with Dani Elizbaeth about her dance background and training routine.
