When folks come to Las Vegas they often wonder, "What show should I see?" While there are lots of choices out there, here are a few types to consider.
1. The Broadway Show: Current hits include Jersey Boys at the Palazzo, Disney's The Lion King at Mandalay Bay and Phantom - the Las Vegas Spectacular. Keep in mind that Las Vegas versions of the Broadway hits may have been altered for time constraints (usually about 90 minutes) and may have age restrictions. Check with the box office for details.
2. Cirque du Soliel: Las Vegas has the highest concentration of the famous Montreal-based performing troupe so one of their amazing performances should be on your list. There is something for everyone in their playlist including a traditional circus-like atmosphere at the original Las Vegas Cirque du Soliel show, Mystere at Treasure Island. On the other end of the spectrum, Viva Elvis, in the newly opened Aria, brings the king and his music to life. Information on all seven of the shows can be found on the Cirque du Soliel website.
3. Bachelor/Bachelorette adult shows: The marketing motto, "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas," continues to permeate the strip and while there are many adult nightclubs to visit in Las Vegas, the casino "adult " shows are some of the best around. "MGM's Crazy Horse Paris" has been imported straight from the Crazy Horse Cabaret in Paris and while topless, is tasteful. Cirque Du Soleil's Zumanityy, also topless in New York, New York, is another dimension of circus entertainment. For the ladies, Chippendale's inside the Rio and Thunder From Down Under in Excalibur provide the right amount of hunk and "hottie" to turn up the heat for any bachelorette party. Age restrictions apply for all of these shows, so check with the box office to make sure all members of your group are able to attend.
4. Celebrity Impersonators: America's Got Talent Winner Terry Fator has one of the newest headliner/impersonator shows appearing at the Mirage. Other notable impressionist shows include American Superstars at the Stratosphere, Larry G Jones at the Royal Resorts Hotel and female impersonator Frank Marino's Diva's Las Vegas at the Imperial Palace.
