    What's the best place to find out what each of the shows is about? I heard there's a summer promo that might be a good idea.

    Thanks!

    SUMMER OF CIRQUE offers a good ticket price (Seventy bucksish on average)
    but your seats can be........well, not the best.

    In re to what each Show is about is a toss up...it's CIRQUE and probably better
    seen than explained...it's hard.
    Check out www.bestofvegas.com
    'click' SHOWS...there's a list of Shows to the Left of the page where you can
    view small videos of the Shows....'O', KA', MYSTERE, ZUMANITY, VIVA ELVIS are there...

    LOL - almost everyone asks about which show is best - rarely ask what the y are about.

    To answer the normal question, just scroll done and you will see a few hundred opinions on which one is best.

    The following will be on the top 4 for almost everyone. The exact order will vary by poster.

    Love
    KA
    Mystere
    "O"

    Less favorable reviews are Elvis and Believe. Some will love them, others will say no way at all.

    That leaves Zumanity. Pretty much middle of the road reviews.

    Thanks for the input everyone! Yes, I have seen everyone ask which is best and LOTS of different replies. That's pretty much why I wanted to see what each is about so we can choose what appeals to us most. :eek:)

    'O'... water theme, lots of acrobats and aerial, great stage
    texture and lighting, (and for me...very 'dark' themes.
    KA'... weak story line, terrific machines and mechanicals,
    lots of different scenes.
    MYSTERE... probably best represents what CIRQUE is all about,
    lots of acrobats, comedy, best Pre-Show routine.
    ZUMANITY... adult themes, a few bare breasts, acrobats/aerial
    and...did I mention adult themes?
    LOVE... wonderful music of the Beatles, acrobats, more wonderful
    music of the Beatles, color, color, color.

    Greg - Can you tell us anything about Viva ELVIS ?? I'm trying to decide between Love & Elvis and I think Elvis ends sometime in August, so time is running out on that one ...

    Edited: I found your comments in another thread ... thank you

    I'm glad ya found something RC...
    CIRQUE didn't pull off with VIVA ELVIS what they did with LOVE.
    I think they 'over tried' to cover Elvis in all the various stages of
    his life and with out the music to go with each stage...we get
    real lost/bored maybe in all the 'down' time.
    It was so much easier with the Beatles...music,music,music and
    everything when with their diffrent periods and it works great.
    VIVA ELVIS has some great scenes and, as ya know...it's going away.
    If you're curious, NOW'S YOUR TIME. You can catch LOVE on another
    trip.
