    I am going in October to Vegs for the first time and going to see Humanity, it was one of the choices given to me when I booked at the Luxor. Does anyone know anything about this show, or has anyone seen it???? Thank You for your help.

    Maybe it's the Titanic Exhibition - "Oh, the humanity". Oops, that's the Hindenburg. Or maybe Criss Angel's show. This is dizzying.

    I envy the original poster for this being their first trip to Vegas. So much excitement and future memories. I hope they don't mind a little ribbing. Have a fantastic time. Luxor was my first Vegas stay as well.

    we saw it. you do know that it's mostly naked and very sexual, right? if that's what you're looking for, you should enjoy it. if not, you may want to look at one of the other options.

    Zumanity is fun. Greg can probably tell you where to sit. We were in the first row balcony when we were there. If you like to be part of the show and aren't shy, you will get the full value of the show by being right up front. Otherwise, I don't believe there's a bad seat on the floor. I wouldn't have wanted to be seated any further back on the balcony. Most of the show is on the stage as opposed to some other Cirque shows where people are crawling all over the walls and ceilings. It is definitely different and for those who are not too uptight, a must-see. Have fun!

    We saw it. We were the first row behind the couches. We loved it. Watch out for those big girls with the strawberries.

    I saw it years ago. I fell asleep. I wasn't "scandalized"; I was bored.

    But then, I famously don't like Cirque du Soleil shows.

    I enjoyed the show, and if you got a great price (or free with your reservation) you can't get better than that. All things being equal, I think Absinthe does the acrobats/sexy/dirty comedy show better. But Zumanity still pulls people in and is definitely a memorable first Vegas show. Just remember that it is for ADULTS....

    I like ZUMANITY and have seen it many times over
    the years and have sat all over the showroom.
    If you're seeing it for the first time, I'd try and find seats in one of the two front sections.
    SEC. 102 or SEC. 103 anywhere you like... look at the seating chart and you'll see why.

    The seating is set up in a horseshoe around the stage.
    During the top of the Show, your two hosts do their thing in the front of the stage...
    If you're sitting in one of the side areas you won't be able to see 'em too well, if at all.
    Because of the shape of the stage, the seats in front will provide you with the most
    complete view.

    It only seems like the folks they use from the audience are those in the 'Love Seats'.
    If you book a normal seat, you'll be fine if it's an issue and...STRAWBERRIES ARE GOOD FOR YOU!

    We liked it. They advertise it as Erotic or Sensual or something like that... I refer to it as the Disneyland version of erotic entertainment. . Target market is Midwestern Americans in Vegas and it caters to that demographic...not offensive or controversial or particularly erotic, but we thought it was fun, lighthearted, and certainly better than any other Cirque show I have seen, (with the exception of Love)

    let us know how you liked it.

    You're in the balcony, a little behind where I sat when I saw it. Not good seats, but theater is intimate enough that you can see everything just fine. I liked the balcony - there is a separate bar with really fast service. A cocktail or two might put you in an even better mood to enjoy the show. :beer:

    Yeah, you're in the middle of the Left side balcony
    section.
    I sat in the balcony for the first time a couple trips back...
    I'd always thought it would look neat from up there and
    I was right.
    Ya got free seats and I'd enjoy where you are. If you don't
    care for the Show, at least you didn't pay for it.
    If I 'was' paying for it, I'd sit on the floor in a section I've
    mentioned above but hey...as Sam says, you'll see everything,
    it's a small theatre and your view will be fine.
    (ya just won't get any chocolate covered strawberries...)

    Mostly naked? That's a stretch. Not the version I saw.

    We saw this our last trip. It was our least favorite of the Cirque shows. I found that it tried to be 'sexy' and 'Cirque' and because it was trying to do both, it kind of did neither. A lot of topless acrobats. And the two girls in the glass bowl was kind of hot -- otherwise, meh.

    We had good seats -- second row. But if you want to see Cirque, I recommend several of their other shows first. If you want to see sexy, I recommend going to something that's only that (I can't help you with that one.)
