    JUBILEE is a Las Vegas treasure. It's the last of it's kind...certainly the classiest,
    most colorful and most elegant Show of it's type and best represents the BIG
    Las Vegas showgirl extravaganza, song and dance Show.

    Sure it's a tongue-in-cheek, campy exhibition of a time gone by, but it's WONDERFUL!
    The fantastic BOB MACKIE costumes are outta this world. The sequined dresses, the
    feathered showgirl headdresses, the thousands of rhinestones covering almost nothing...
    Scene after scene, it's an overwhelming treat for the eyes.

    Always entertaining, different variety acts entertain while the massive stage sets are changed.
    'Samson and Delilah', 'The Titanic' fill the stage with elaborate stage sets among others.
    Over head and side balconies are showcase areas for more beautiful women and guys showing
    off these fantastic costumes with over 30 dancers on stage at one time!
    The final finale...the 'Grand Staircase Parade' is amazing.

    You don't want to sit too close, there's just too much to see...on the sides, above your head, and
    on the main stage.
    I suggest mid room to back. Too close and you'll miss the over head action...ya gotta be back further
    to take it all in. It's not a huge showroom...

    The Front Rows of REAR SECTION D are great. The Back Rows of FRONT SECTION C are good too.
    I've seen JUBILEE lots of times and this time, I wanted closer and chose Middle Sec. C, Row B, Seat 36.

    Another one we plan on seeing on our November trip. Can we wait until we get there and use our 2 for 1 coupon or does it sell well?

    Sarah, as long as your coupon hasn't expired, you're good and
    can wait til ya get there however...the earlier you get your tics,
    the better chance of the better seats.
    There's always twofers for JUBILEE.

    Just returned from our first trip and we enjoyed the heck out of Jubilee!! My husband wasn't thrilled about going, but was VERY impressed. The stage props alone are amazing... and the costumes were over the top! I would hightly recommend this show!

    We saw it 6 years ago on our 10th anniversary. We had great seats, and I even got pulled up for a magic trick. Loved the show, thought it was great fun and very classic Vegas.

    There's a daytime tour of backstage available too.

    I'd recomend it only after you've seen the show, to keep the surprizes. Spoiler Alert! hee hee

    Its not much walking but there are some stairs (if you have difficulty with them).

    There is a waiver to sign. If you stay close to the tourguide (who is a cast member / dancer from the show) and follow the instructions - there is very little danger. The stage floor has a few gaps and holes. The hotel is concerned someoone with high heels may get caught in one and sue. Wear sensable shoes. Its called a walking tour for a reason.

    You get to see some of the costumes closer up. Your tourguide is very informative.

    A great way to spend a little over an hour.

    I liked the show, but.... I thought it was to long. We saw the second show( I believe a 10:00 ) start time and it kind of draged. Yes. women were beautiful, costumes are funny and amazing, just thought they could have made some cuts to keep the pace faster. Maybe we had been out and a few drinks before, just seemed to go forever.
