“Leslie Gore was a hit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Excellent choreography and costumes! Multi-talented performers doing fun songs from fifties and sixties...I enjoyed the hula hooper and headliner (Leslie Gore). Patriotic songs and salutes to military personnel in the audience were also highlights. Religious jokes were in bad taste.

“The Fabulous Palm Springs Follies really are Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is an excellant show and we have been going every year for the past 15 years. Our group includes ages from 22 to 84 and the variety of the show, the costumes, and the pure entertainment is fantastic. No where can you see this type of entertainmaent any more. It has introduced my kids to Vaudeville and Burlesque and they absolutely love it. From the ladies in group sales, to the ushers and everyone involved, you are treated as a guest with the utmost sincerity. Aslo, the trijbute to our servicemen at the end of the show is truly something to see. My brother who is a veteran and attended this year for the first time was moved to tears during this part of the performance.

“Just a Variety Show”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

In spite of the hype "Our performers, who range in age from 56 to 86, dance and sing with a zest that even younger folk envy" there seems to be minimal dancing by the so-called follies girls over the 2 hour and 45 minute period for the entire show. Almost half the time is listening to one of the owners (Riff Markowitz) ramble on in off-color jokes and stories. Toss in a couple of variety acts, and there you have it, one long show.
