With performing orangutans, chorus line dancers and a few laughs, this show has the makings of a hit on the Las Vegas Strip. Or maybe a TV soap opera, given the accusations of abuse, tearful denials and tales of intrigue. But the stage for this show is the Clark County courthouse, a few miles off the famed Strip.

Showgirls and show-goers wept as the final curtain closed on a 32 1/2-year fixture on the Las Vegas Strip, with 400 former showgirls sharing in a poignant farewell for the "Lido de Paris." The show, imported from Paris in 1958, has drawn 19 million people for 22,000 performances here. Artistic differences and costs have prompted the Stardust Hotel, the "Lido's" home, to opt for a new musical production, scheduled to open in July.

Entertainer Bobby Berosini was awarded $4.2 million by a jury Saturday in his bitter yearlong battle with animal rights activists who accused him of beating orangutans used in his act on the Las Vegas Strip. "Thank you, America," Berosini, a native of Czechoslovakia, said as he left the courtroom. "He'll never see a penny of that money," responded Philip Hirschkop, an attorney for the Washington-based People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Lucky Seven Limousine chauffeur Rena Warden carries a folded photocopy of her "Lido de Paris" showgirl photo to show passengers interested in the good old days along the Strip. Carefully unfolding the tattered sheet of paper, she smooths it out on the cocktail lounge table: It depicts a high-contrast likeness of a much younger Rena, draped in a dated costume of white mink and Persian lamb.

I was drinking at King Eddy's, the skid row dive that's being made over into a hipster bar, when I overheard people say that a web of old bootlegger tunnels lay under downtown. A labyrinth, running from the old speakeasy beneath King Eddy's to Pershing Square and points beyond - even San Pedro? They had me at "tunnel. " I had to know more. The Los Angeles Department of Public Works didn't know about the tunnels. Map librarian Glen Creason of the Central Library told me that they were never mapped, for obvious reasons.
