Posted: Updated:

This week we were feeling adventurous and playful here at Crane.tv.. which is why when we heard that the legendary Parisian burlesque show was being performed within close proximity to our HQ, we jumped at the opportunity to witness one of the most thrilling and talked about cabaret performances of all time.

Le Crazy Horse is celebrating its 60th anniversary and has for the first time embarked on an international tour. For one month only, Londoners will be able to enjoy the celebrated, burlesque show at the Supperclub, in Notting Hill - a tribute to femininity, creativity, dance and seduction.

Founded in 1951, by Alan Bernardin, an avant-garde artist and art lover, an admirer of the female body and spirit. Bernardin infused Parisian elegance to American burlesque of the early-twentieth century and created a spectacle that over the years has entertained celebrities, artists and politicians, and has established its Parisian venue as the most famous nightspot in the city.

Elvis Presley, Elizabeth Taylor, John F. Kennedy, Salvador Dali and Madonna, are just a few that have been entertained there and the Crazy Horse stages have featured guest performances by Dita Von Teese, Carmen Electra and Pamela Anderson. Karl Lagerfeld, Azzedine Alaia and Christian Louboutin have all designed costumes for the glamorous acts.
