When the world-famous MGM Hello, Hollywood, Hello! show opened in 1978: it was billed as The Biggest Show in the World, on The Biggest Stage in the World appearing in The Biggest Little City in the World, Reno, Nevada – it was a BIG deal! Plus, the show paid tribute to two of the biggest names in entertainment history: MGM Movie Studios and producer Florenz Ziegfeld, who is sometimes billed as the “man who invented modern day show business”.
December Speaker: Karen Burns
Karen was a professional dancer appearing in many shows, most notably: Hello, Hollywood, Hello! With the Serendipity of Life, Karen had the unpreceded opportunity to purchase “a piece of history” of over 1,250 of the original spectacular costumes from this show. These costumes help to “Tell the Stories of Art, Culture and Entertainment”, when Reno, Nevada was once one of the Entertainment Capitals of the World!
