    IMHO, Ka, because it has a storyline and a unique feature (the moving platforms)

    From the wiki:

    " is a show by Cirque du Soleil at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. describes the story as "the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of , the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate."

    Unless, they are die-hard fans of the Beatles or Michael Jackson in which the answers would be Love or MJ One, respectively.

    Funny you picked Ka as my daughter picked that one to, plus they are staying at the signature at MGM Grand so close to the showroom...

    Our 20 - something kids have been to LOVE twice and none of the others.

    Michael Jackson maybe.

    If you are in that 5% that love Chris Angel, then go there, otherwise steer clear.

    MEANWHILE - ou mention Vegas Virgins but you show 28 trips.. maybe this is for your daughter and friend?

    I love Criss Angel but his show is bad. I'm a Beatles fan but was underwhelmed with Love. Over hyped IMHO. I liked Zumanity but it's very raunchy (but less so than Absinthe, which is the better show).

    Le Reve isn't a "Cirque" show per se, but imo, that and "O" are the best shows of that nature on the strip.

    I've seen O, Mystere, and Ka. Mystere is my favorite out of all those.

    I'm going to respectfully disagree with Dailun. Wife and I hated Ka. It seems there's no middle-ground for Ka, people either love or hate it.

    Our favorite is Beatle's Love, wife and I have seen it four times. Our son is 21, has seen it twice and likes it.
    We saw Michael Jackson One a week ago today. I liked it a lot, my wife liked it but not as much as me.
    I loved Mystere but my opinion might be biased since it was our first Cirque show.

    I loved Mystere, enjoyed O, but basically it comes down to what
    people like. Some love KA, some hate it, Some love Mystere, some hate it.
    You could go on the internet and look them up to get more info on them. Then
    go from there. Ask them what they like. If they are fans of MJ - go there - if they
    love the Beatles - go there, if they like acrobatics - pick one of those like Mystere
    or O. Everyone is different. I hope they have fun whatever you decide - so much
    fun taking newbies to stuff. See it through their eyes again.
    Have fun!

    Mystere was the original on the strip and it's still a good option.

    "O" might be boring for a 21 year old. KA has lots of action which would be more to the liking of a 21 year old. It is so hard to say. Our then 25 year old totally loved those Motown Guys that all us old folks were reminiscing about.

    I agree with Ka, for all of the reasons Dai Lun suggested. I really enjoyed it. I would say it is the most "linear" of all of the Cirque shows I have seen.

    We haven't seen all the Cirque shows, by any means. But of the ones we have, they all have a, shall we say, thin plot line, but the acrobatics are great. We liked O but there's so much going on in, around, and above the water that it can be hard to take it all in. I like Love best, and my wife liked it a lot, too. I guess I'd blindly recommend KA. It was fun and maybe it was the origin of the "climbing wall."

    I've seen Mystere, Ka and O. In that order. I never wanted to bother with a Cirque show but my wife was relentless so I suggested that we see a Cirque show. I was really impressed with Mystere. I had no clue what was happening as far as story line goes, but I was really impressed with all the acrobatics. I could follow Ka's story line and the acrobatics were pretty good but the stage was really impressive. O was really good. I enjoyed the cheap humor of the clowns but I'm a dad and dad's love corny humor, I'm not sure how 21 year old girls would take it, but that isn't the focal point of the show. For me it is a coin flip between Mystere and O.

    I'd start with Mystere. It's a solid, basic Cirque show. If you start with a high production show like Ka or O, Mystere will disappoint, at least that was my experience.

    Assuming they haven't seen any Cirque shows anywhere else, Mystere is the best bargain and great general cirque type entertainment. We've seen them all except O and really enjoyed most of them. Our only exception was the MJ one, which we nearly walked out of. Of course we're old enough to be your daughters' grandparents. We really liked KA, as well.
