Showgirls of Magic was a magic themed Las Vegas production show, featuring an all female cast.

Created by producer Bonnie Saxe, it initially featured her daughter, Melinda Saxe. Later versions of the show featured other female magicians, or had no named 'star'.

Conceived and originally staged as a traditional nude revue, the show also offered a 'family' matinee performance, and was even featured in childrens' television show Just Imagine.

David Saxe, son of Bonnie and brother of Melinda, took over the show as part of his David Saxe Productions roster, and refreshed the show with new illusions by Thom Rubino. Other headliners featured, but it finally closed in 2005.

'Showgirls' is credited as the inspiration for later nude magic shows featuring Scarlett, Princess of Magic, and the failed Centerfolds of Magic.


A 2005 review for Virtual Magic described the show as comprising:
