    So, I've taken several trips to our beloved Vegas but not with just my mother and I. I am 32, my mom is 66. She is a fun ol' gal but is still my mom and I was curious as to what show(s) we should catch? My mom has only been to Vegas two times...When she got married and when I took my parents back for their 35th wedding anniversary. :beer: So in a few days mom and I are off to the beautiful Las Vegas weather (we live in Milwaukee area YUCK) and I want to see a few shows. What would be good, not raunchy I have to sit next to my mother, something we both would enjoy? I'm open to dinner and movie shows, concert, magic, cirqcue whatever....Thanks guys!!!!

    Jersey Boys would be a great show. She would know who Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons are and would probably know all the music. It's a great show.

    I totally agree with this! It's a great show she would probably love. Other suggestions are LOVE, Human Nature, and MJ One.

    I am 71, I enjoyed all the Cirque shows except Zumanity. Human Nature is great, Legends in Concert just okay, Terry Fator is excellent. Enjoyed the Rat Pack is Back,

    I go to Vegas at least once a year with my daughter, we always have a great time including a Spa Day.

    Have fun.

    Million $ quartet. Age 66 so I'd imagine she'd be familiar with all the music and not expensive.

    I my mom is a little older than your mom, but loved Million Dollar Quartet here in Chicago, as well as Jersey Boys. We saw Human Nature when the toured to the local Horseshoe Casino here and she really enjoyed that as well.

    Jersey Boys is a GREAT suggestion.......another if you have been married or are married is to see Rita Rudner at Harrah's now. She 100% clean and the funniest women I ever sat down to watch..........TRUST me on this one.

    For sure Jersey Boys, I took my mom to see it when it was at the Palazzo. I was 23 and she was 65 and we both loved it. Absinthe is right up there as one of the best shows I've seen - I'm not sure what my mom would have thought, but probably would love it lol. I'm going with family again at the end of April and we are going to see FRANK. The Man. The Music. At Palazzo. It sounds like it will be a great show!

    Just saw Jersey Boys Wednesday nite, great show, little over 2 hours, with a break half way. Rod Stewart, if he's playing, I was stunned by the amount of seniors that attended his show, I'm 58 and this show attracted many many older folks then me, believe me, he's 70 and a super first class show. I was waiting for the seniors to do the lighter thing for an encore. if he's playing, see him, brought many great memories back!
