Days before the closing of the Riviera next Monday at noon and its 60-year run on the Strip comes exclusive news that the 28-year-old Riviera adult cabaret headliner “Crazy Girls” will move to Planet Hollywood.

The topless beauties get their own Crazy Girls Theater in the new Strip location, which also is the home of Britney Spears and her “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis at Planet Hollywood and the future home of Jenifer Lopez at the same Axis theater.

I’m reliably told that Caesars Entertainment executives will transform the current Sin City Theater into Crazy Girls Theater on the mezzanine level of the casino resort. They hope to have it reopened for a May 13 premiere of the new “Crazy Girls” show.

The topless temptresses, the first and original Las Vegas cabaret show, plan new, barely there costumes and dance routines in their new theater home. The sexy, sensuous and stunning showgirls have celebrated a run of 28 years at the Riviera, and they plan on continuing their success story in the new location.

No word yet if one of the most photographed statues in Las Vegas history, a bronze of the dancers’ posteriors that once brought traffic on the Strip to a halt, will be relocated to the front of Planet Hollywood, ahem, but the dance troupe will take it with them after their final show this Friday.

The glamorous girls will celebrate their 16,000-plus show run and new move Thursday night at the Riviera. Their immortalized bronze butts were built in 1997 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show and will now celebrate its 30th anniversary in its new Planet Hollywood home.
