    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's an eye-popping, awe-inspiring show.
    Cons: It's also a wallet-shrinking show.

    Summary: Contrary to popular belief, Vegas is not that cheap these days. Quality entertainment, in particular, often comes with a hefty price tag. For this reason, the Chelledun family picked just one show on our recent Vegas trip. The consensus was the ... read more

    Pros: Contortionists, and Fire handlers
    Cons: Clowns, and the Venue

    Summary: There are two parts to this review--the show, and the venue.The Show:  Alegria is a traveling show, so the set, lighting, and sound has limitations. The performers did very well for the most part, however humans are not perfect, ... read more

    Pros: Amazing show for adults and the performers are talented beyond belief!
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: I am definately NOT a circus lover and was hesitant about spending the money (and it is expensive-a minimum of $100. a person with ticket and a light snack at the show).  However, my adult sister requested this as her 40th birthday present so how ... read more

    Pros: The singing, visuals and 4 acrobatic acts were impressive.
    Cons: Boring finale. overpriced tickets. lacking acrobatics and tricks. no plot or storyline.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: the amazing artistry and impressive performances bring the Beatles' music to life like never before
    Cons: a few hokey numbers and a loose thematic sense.

    Summary: Traveling to modern-day Las Vegas is like stepping into another dimension. The basic rules that govern day-to-day life outside of the city simply don't apply. It starts even before your plane lands - the way that the vast, grey-brown desert you've ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review

    Summary: I cannot BELIEVE that some people were actually giving this show a one-star-out-of-five rating. I, for one, thought that this show was AMAZING. The singing talents and acrobatic talents of the performers is UNBELIEVABLE. I saw the show just last night ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Some good music.
    Cons: The acrobatics and quirky humor that's been a trademark of Cirque was mostly missing.

    Summary: I saw Cirque de Soleil's new show Delirium tonight at the Bobcat arena in Charlotte. It was terrible! While the plot obviously follows the dreams (or nightmares) of a man who appears torn between worlds, I felt trapped inside the hallucinations of a mad ... read more

  • Zumanity: Not very sexy for a show about sex

    Jun 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Several very hot acts
    Cons: Tries way too hard, slapstick portions were ridiculous, falls short

    Summary: Zumanity is one of Cirque du Soleil’s resident shows in Las Vegas, and it’s first attempt at an erotic show. (Or I should say sex-themed, since some of Cirque’s acrobatics can be erotic anyway.) Zumanity is in residence at the New York New ... read more

    Pros: incredibly entertaining, best show in Vegas
    Cons: expensive, often sold out

    Summary: This was my first (and only) Cirque show. As many people will say, if you only see one show (or one Cirque show, since there are presently 4 of them), see O. I agree. From what I've seen/heard about the others, this is one that will please the majority ... read more
