Tropical Follies

 

Discover the beauty of Latin America with “TROPICAL FOLLIES” – A musical journey that will take you from coast to coast through a night of hot rhythms, burlesque, live music, tap dancing, comedy & more!

Mila brings you back to the  glory of the CASSINO DA URCA, Rio’s most spectacular casino back in the 1940s, the epitome of Rio’s golden era of glamour where Carmen Miranda was the resident star before moving to Hollywood. 

Ethnic minorities such as Latinos hardly appeared in early Hollywood and if so, were often typecast in negative, subservient roles. This revue celebrates the Latin artist who broke the mold like Dolores Del Rio, Rita Moreno, Carmen Miranda, Rita Hayworth, Sammy Davis Jr, Lupe Velez, Ricky Ricardo, Cantinflas and many more.

Created & Produced in 2015 by Mila Spigolon, this 60min Musical Variety Show serves-up an intoxicating blend of Old Hollywood class with Vaudevillian acts to enchant, whoop it up and entertain any audience!
