Step into the re-imagining of Sergio Leone’s masterpiece “Once Upon a Time in the West”, with a twist. A dusty desert town falls into the manicured hands of a temptress from New Orleans and the Wild West is about to get even wilder!

Come explore the classic tale of good versus evil, the notorious pathos of western films and the dynamic scenes that juxtapose cinematic stillness with sudden action, suspense and physical feats. All this and more embodied by world-class female talent channeling their inner Claudia Cardinale – cirque artists, glorious dance ensemble, burlesque starlets and a rung of other glamorous outlaws dressed to thrill.

The cabaret is coming back to Florentine Gardens Hollywood! Once a bustling entertainment house graced by such names as Marylin Monroe, Lili St. Cyr and Yvonne De Carlo, the Girls back to the Gardens!
