Taking in a Show:  Cirque du Soleil Makes Sure to Offer Something For Everyone

In case you didn’t already know, Cirque du Soleil is not your typical circus.  There will be no elephants prancing about or lions being tamed.  Cirque du Soleil takes entertainment to the next level with awe inspiring acrobatics and aerial feats.  There are currently eight different shows running at various Vegas hot spots, so you are guaranteed to find one that wakes up the clown inside of you.

The Luxor Hotel’s very own Magician of the Century, Criss Angel, has teamed up with Cirque du Soleil to bring us a magic show that would have even the great Harry Houdini scratching his head.  Criss Angel Believe has critics raving that not only is it the best Las Vegas has to offer, it is the best in the world.

The Beatles Love at the Mirage is a Cirque du Soleil extravaganza that unites old and new. You are taken back in time with classic Beatles music being celebrated all over again with urban, freestyle dance moves and extreme sports.  Hear your beloved favorites played as if for the first time and sing along with the chorus as if you were John Lennon himself.

The first thing you will hear from anyone who has seen Zarkana is wonderment at the sand artist.  This amazing character is nothing like you have ever seen before as she gives a brief summary of the first half of the musical using sand pictures as well as a preview of the second.  This is talent you will only see at the ARIA Resort & Casino.  The rest of the show is just as entertaining as you are transported to a run-down circus and introduced to all of its misfits.

And I thought sand was for building castles.

Kama Sutra meets Cabaret meets the circus is the best way to describe the Cirque du Soleil production Zumanity.  Onstage at New York-New York Las Vegas, this breathtaking burlesque style show follows no storyline.  Instead you are entertained by a variety of small acts, with what else but sex as the underlying theme. From the raunchy to the wicked you are taken on a journey exploring eroticism in this groundbreaking show that is not meant for the sexually repressed.

Fighting, swimming, kissing and... WHAT WAS THAT?!?!
