Before Las Vegas, and even Ziegfeld, there was a time when a visit to Paris meant catching a "show"—where else could frothy underwear look like so much fun? For authentic kitsch, the spectacle at Montmartre's Moulin Rouge, in continuous business since 1889, is still worth the visit. This place genuinely recalls the raucous amusements of the 19th century, though the signature windmill is now outlined in red neon. Sixty "Doriss" girls and countless sequins are featured in Féerie, the new all-dancing show of high-class cheese, which includes a crowd-pleasing cancan. The audience is international, with a hearty dose of French provincials. Avoid the (mediocre) dinner performance and come for the late show at 11 pm; the $120 cover comes with a half bottle of Champagne or two drinks.
