It is the 23rd and final season of the legendary Palm Springs Follies. The extraordinary holiday show is not to be missed.

Singers, dancers and comedians from Hollywood and Broadway’s long and rich history are all together once again for one of the desert’s best kept secrets, Palm Springs Follies. The iconic Plaza Theater in downtown Palm Springs is lit up brighter than any Christmas Tree. You can’t miss the Plaza Theater, as it is is right across the street from the giant Marilyn Monroe statue on Palm Canyon Drive. Marilyn, and The Palm Springs Follies will both be gone from the desert mecca, forever in May.

Riff Markowitz is ringmaster for more variety than you’ve ever seen on the small or big screen. The politically incorrect humorist makes fun of all that exists in our modern world. We laugh at both Riff, and ourselves in this fast paced holiday show. Brace yourself for nearly 3 hours of constant energy, all performed by entertainment veterans aged 50-85.

Riff “retired” from producing television shows for George Burns, Vincent Price and others in the early 90s, then his post-career began as host of Palm Springs Follies. Each show features faces you have seen for years, without knowing who they were.

Special guest Susan Anton adds a touch of class to this zany stage show through December, followed by singer Maureen McGovern in January, and the most famous back-up singer in history, Darlene Love will close Palm Springs Follies forever March-May 2014.

This is your last chance to see this unique foray into live  magical entertainment on a gorgeous, historic stage. Tickets are selling out fast, so see it soon. I’m attending the Christmas show this weekend, and the final performance in May. I also hope to have ‘Darlene Love’ join me at The Wave Sunday Brunch in early 2014.
