Showgirls Easter Egg - Say Goodbye to Drew Barrymore!
The film-makers had originally wanted Madonna to play Cristal Conners, and Drew Barrymore to play Nomi Malone. In the end however, both actresses refused the parts on numerous occasions. Thus leaving the film-makers to search for two new female leads. Eventually deciding upon Elizabeth Berkley to play Nomi Malone and Gina Gershon to play Cristal Conners. However, the film-makers weren't finished with Drew.
Part way through the movie when Nomi get cast in the production of "Goddess" she is lead by the choreographer Gaye, through the backstage area and eventually leads Nomi to the makeup table she will be using. A name card is taped up on the mirror as they arrive, and in large blue letters it says DREW. Gaye takes the card off the mirror along with two pictures of cats, ( Drew Barrymore being an animal lover ) and tosses them to the ground.
This was there way of showing Drew they had moved on.
I haven’t found a egg against Madonna yet, but I will keep looking.
