    Frankly, those are probably my three least liked shows. But, my wife and I loved KA and LOVE - they tie as our top CDS shows.

    We have seen KA which was my favorite. Also MJ One and Mystere. My husband is not a Beatles fan so we are trying to decide if any of these are worth seeing. Would love to see O but it's a little pricy.

    Have you considered La Reve? The production/set is outstanding. It was voted "best production" for four years.

    Zumanity> Zarkana IMO

    Otherwise, I am a fan of Mystere, La Reve, and Ka.

    I've seen 2 of the 3 (Zumanity and Zarkana) and I far preferred Zumanity.

    And I hated Zumanity but liked Zarkana!

    Differing opinions! Guess you just gotta pick one. The Criss Angel show is pretty much universally disliked.

    Yeah you pretty much did pick the 3 worst Cirque shows in Vegas.

    So I'd have to say Zarkana.

    I'm rehashing what's already been said, but that's probably their bottom tier. I've seen Zumanity and Zarkana, but not Believe....Chris Angel get panned no matter where you read reviews.

    Zumanity is different enough to stand out and be enjoyable, in my eyes. Best with a significant other. I was bored with Zarkana. Nothing stood out as memorable.

    I'll also suggest Le Reve. It's a incredibly well done CDS style production show minus their brand name. It rivals the best of what CDS can offer. Either that, or force your husband to Love.

    Zarkana was my first Cirque show and my wife and I enjoyed it. I'm not a huge Beatles fan either but loved Love. I'm in the minority but I hated KA. My favorites are MJ one and Mystere.

    Anyway, of those 3 I'd likely pick Zarkana.

    Zumanity was great. Very adult humor (get there before the show starts). If you are easily offended skip Zumanity. Not an MJ fan at all so that show doesn't cut it for me. Mystere is the original but average at best. Ka was ok. As talented as Criss Angel is Believe is not a good show. He just do a show on his own.

    I guess you should not ask us... we have been to love 7 or 8 times.

    Zumanity was okay. Would not do Chris Angel based on reviews.

    I Have seen Ka (amazing) and Zarkana. I have alson seen a few of the traveling shows. If it is your first time seeing a show I don't think you can go wrong, me sons's fianc├ęs first show was Zarkana she was amazed by it. My wife and I were not so much compared to the others. That does not mean it was bad though. I would go off the board and reccomend Ka.

    Sure is fun to see everyones opinion. My best to worst:

    Absinthe: Very raunchy and I've never laughed so hard in my life!
    Zumanity: Seen it twice. Somewhat raunchy but still pretty awesome. Funny, some nude, good "physical" acts.
    KA: Saw it last weekend. The stage is an engineering marvel, but he show felt very disconnected to me and my wife. They give about a two minute "setup" story at the beginning and then there is no other talking (aside from jiberish) the rest of the show. I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends.
    Bite: I think this show is gone, and for good reason!!

    That's the good and the bad of forums like this. Everything (rooms, food, shows, etc) is so subjective. We all have our likes and dislikes. You just have to read everyones opinions, do some research on each show you are interested in and hope for the best :)

    I agree that if you've never been to a Cirque show you'll most likely enjoy any of them.

    All three look the same if you go to it black-out drunk... :drunk:

    I preferred Zarkana... and I loved "O"... so you may want to check 1/2 price tix to see if you can score two.
