Forever Crazy: Legendary Parisian cabaret hits Crown this month

Perth will get a taste of Paris’ legendary Crazy Horse cabaret when the touring show Forever Crazy arrives at Crown Theatre in September. The stunning dancers in their famed red soled 5-inch Christian Louboutin heels will take to the stage for a mesmerising show.  

Le Crazy Horse opened in Paris in the 1950’s, filling a space created by knocking together 12 underground wine cellars. The cabaret show celebrates ‘Le Femme’ and it’s developed a reputation for beauty, audacity and creativity.

Producer Mark Brady said the show was a like a little part of Paris was coming to Perth.

“The production is sophisticated, dream-like, chic erotic and sensual, but it’s also very sophisticated very classical and unbelievably beautiful.”

Brady said when Crazy Horse first opened it Paris, it was much edgier than the much more traditional Moulin Rouge, and the show has kept its commitment to being a cutting edge production.

When the show moves into the Crown theatre the space will be transformed to recreate the intimate feeling of the Parisian venue.

“The show in Paris is very intimate, the venue has around 300 seats and it’s filled with deep velvet walls and beautiful fittings. In Perth we’re pulling up the front seats of the theatre and putting in tables with a champagne service to recapture that magic.” Brady said.

Casting the show has been a challenge for the producer because only a certain type of girl can be in Forever Crazy.

“It’s very strict, the girls have to be a certain height, have a certain look and personality, they have to have the right leg length and torso length. They’re really strict on the criteria.” Brady said. “It’s really tough to get in, they get over a thousand applications.”

Forever Crazy opens at the Crown Theatre from Wednesday 6 September. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.
