    Looking for my next great show for September. I've seen:

    Ka
    Love
    Le Reve
    Mystere
    Blue Man
    Celine
    Absinthe
    Tournament of Kings
    (might be some others; my memory fails me)

    I enjoyed them all, but we liked Love, Celine, and Absinthe the best.

    What's the best show not on this list, in your opinion?

    Considering: Jersey Boys, Human Nature, Zarkana, or Penn & Teller, but open to suggestions...

    Easily Jersey Boys without a doubt. I've seen that and Zarkana here in NY not in Vegas but I assume they're the same. Jersey Boys is an outstanding show with a great story and great music. After seeing all those Cirque shows seeing a Broadway play with a real storyline will be a nice change of pace!

    In fact I would see Jersey Boys again in a heartbeat and I almost never see the same Broadway show twice since there are so many to choose from.

    Michal Jackson One. Very very good show, so much better than I thought it would be.

    Definitely Jersey Boys!

    I'd go for Michael Jackson ONE as well. The initial reports of the previews of the show are excellent. Cirque's first hit in quite a while.

    You can skip Zarkana. It's definitely not worth the time/money.

    Jersey Boys and Human Nature. I would see them both again and highly recommend them. Both are jam packed with entertainment.

    Based on your list, definitely Penn and Teller. I saw them a couple weeks ago and they are really good. Teller is second to none in the sleight of hand category.

    I would also consider Carrot Top and Michael Jackson One. I've seen Carrot Top twice and he had me cracking up for a solid hour and a half.

    I think you'd like Penn & Teller. It is a very good show and something a little different from what you've already seen. I'm a big fan.

    Sounds like I'll probably narrow it down to Penn and Teller and Jersey Boys. Might save Carrot Top for the future.

    Carrot Top is th funniest comic I have ever seen....we have seen him many times, his show is never the same.

    Jersey Boys is on our must see list for our July trip. It is always on everyone's top 5 show list.

    Penn and Teller is great

    Another Carrot Top suggestion here. I've seen a handful of comedians outside of Vegas and his show had the most laughs per minute of any show I've been to.
