    Absinthe for sure - as everyone has pretty much said. We saw Carrot Top on last visit and loved him - really worth seeing.

    I agree with Carrot Top. His show is tremendous.
    I may be the only person that did not like Absinthe. I actually walked out 25 minutes into the show...

    Le Reve. Hands down! I’ve seen it three times and never gets old. Better then any Cirque. However, if you want a more musical show, then Beatles Love, also seen that one 3 times!:)

    Absinthe for the reasons already stated....very edgy and unique.

    Le Reve is great and very Cirque de Soleil-esque....Beautiful stage and detailing.

    I loved both of the above for different reasons and have seen many other shows (Eg. most of the other Cirque shows - O, Love, Ka, Mystere...Penn and Teller, Carrot Top, etc.)...Absinthe and Le Reve stand out!

    Enjoy!

    If you’re with your wife/girlfriend, then skip absinthe.

    Take her to O if you want cirque soleil, and carrot top if you want to laugh.

    Thinking about going to see Absinthe in Aug. What do I need to know before getting tickets? How to dress? Some tickets better then others? Anything would help.

    There really is no bad seat in the house - though some may say try to stay away from the first 3 rows or so. No dress code. When I first walked in I was thinking "WTF is this? I paid this much $ for a show like this?" When I walked out I was thinking "HOLY WOW! BEST SHOW in Vegas and worth every penny!" I recommend this show to all. I don't think I have spoken to anyone that has seen this show that disliked it. Enjoy!

    Absinthe by far. Racy, Raunchy, Erotic and Exotic it is billed as. If you are at all offended by some crass humor, maybe a little swearing then not for you. The acrobatic feats are outstanding. It is theatre in the round but I've managed to get seats at front entrance. The venue has chairs (like a high school gym). I'm Vegas next week with my son and his buddy tagging along and trying to pin down some seats for them. But I'm one of those seat snobs,,won't book unless I get the seats I want, and right now not looking good for them.

    All the adult type adjectives definitely apply to Absinthe. I really thought it was hilarious. Wife thought it was too raunchy, though she spent the whole time laughing her butt off! Only downside is the seating - small theater/tent with folding chairs packed together much closer than economy class on Spirit Airlines. You are ok unless a slightly larger than normal person sits next to you. In that case you are sitting on 2/3 of a folding chair! Small enough that even the back rows are close to the performers.
