I'll throw my two cents in on this, having seen the majority of shows (including all cirque's) on the strip and following this particular one through it's development, I just got the chance to see it last night in one of the final preview performances before the premiere. I'll also be keeping this spoiler-free. I did not see Immortal, though I've talked to many who did and I think the overwhelming consensus on that show is pretty clear. I went into the performance last night with Mr. Leach's Vegas Sun review in mind, wondering if that was truly just publicity fluff or if there was any validity to it. To simply summarize the verdict, MJ One is a masterpiece in need of moderate tweaking. Minor tweaks aside, the show was done flat-out right: it engages the entire audience from start to finish, it utilizes absolutely incredible projection, lighting and sound technology that nobody has ever seen implemented before, and it keeps itself centered the entire time on the thing that matters most: Michael Jackson's music. Again, simply put: Even if just listening to the hits of Michael Jackson in an absolutely state of the art, brand new theater with quite possibly the best sound system I've ever heard in Las Vegas interests you, you would want to watch this show. Bare in mind, this show is *LOUD*, and as it should be. There are allegedly some five thousand speakers in the theater, but the main ones in the ceiling do their job and do it very, very well. The theater does also use the same in-seat speaker setup as LOVE does. What's really awesome is that they use both speakers in the headrests, as well as speakers in the back of the seat in front of you. Not only does that allow a slightly more immersive experience when it comes to the audio, but the overall quality of the speakers throughout the entire theater just sounds a *little bit* richer and fuller than LOVE's does. I also shared a similar concern as others I've read on the internet that the songs would be remixed or modified in crazy ways. Thankfully, most of what you're going to hear is pure, original MJ that's clearly remastered for the best possible quality. There is some modest edits, transitions and some minor remixing throughout, but the music stays pure. Although it's a cirque show, as previously mentioned, the acrobatics take a backseat to the music and the dancing...however, that shouldn't deter you. There are still some eye-popping and new/innovative cirque acrobat tricks throughout, and even some of the dancing you'll see borders on Mystere-type craziness. They really did find the best possible talent to do this production, no doubt in my mind. I do have to mention one more time, the technology and innovation that you're going to see in this production. There are things that this show pulls off with it's video projection, lighting and visual effects that are absolutely jaw-dropping and flat-out incredible. What's even better and makes the experience even more fun is the audience reaction. You'll get a mixed bag of all walks of life at every Cirque show on the strip, and there are some mixed reactions, but for the most part...everyone sitting around you is going to be very, very into the show and they'll act like it. The ending especially invokes a huge audience reaction. Like I said at first, there's tweaking to be done. A lot of it is minor, for they've surely figured out that the core of this show is exactly what it should be and I don't anticipate it's going to be messed with. It's not a perfect production, but once the minor adjustments take place, it's probably going to end up being perfect...and that will guarantee it's residency here for a long, long time. Don't let the high prices scare you away from seeing it right now though, if you have the chance. This is absolutely a must-see. Seating wise, the theater was designed really well for this show and you won't get a bad experience anywhere you sit. However, as with all Cirque shows, if you really want to get a good perspective on EVERYTHING that's going on, you'll want to get further back. That is especially important with this show, as all of the video projection and even some of the action wraps *around* the stage to the left and right hand sides of it. For the perfect perspective on everything, you'll want Sections 202/203/204 as far down at the bottom as you can get (Ideally rows AA through FF) Enjoy!
