Today is Throwback Thursday. Okay then. We will hop into our time machine and go back to 1988. And voila! Above is a picture of legendary singer, dancer, actor and comedian Sammy Davis Jr. with the cast of the Las Vegas show Crazy Girls. Mr. Davis died a few years later in 1990.
Specific to Las Vegas entertainment history, Sammy Davis Jr. was known for being part of the The Rat Pack along with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford. The entertainers headlined at many resorts on The Las Vegas Strip including Caesars Palace, the Sands Hotel and Casino, MGM Grand and Riviera Hotel and Casino.
We look forward to the day when Crazy Girls announces where its new home in Las Vegas will be. It is, without a doubt, one of the city’s great entertainment offerings.
