Another Las Vegas Burlesque Show Bites the Desert Dust

On the heels of Las Vegas burlesque show closures, including the recent Folies Bergere that closed on March 28 after ivan-kanetheir 49-year-run, Ivan Kane’s Forty Deuce also called it quits, succumbing to the ongoing ravages of the economy last weekend after more than four years of being in the retail shops area adjacent to MGM Mirage’s Mandalay Bay. 

Kane fueled the retro burlesque revival with Forty Deuce in Las Vegas and his Hollywood nightclub.  Now both are shuttered. Kane’s name only remains on the subdued Café Was.
