Zumanity, Love, Blue Man Group or other?

I am looking for input as to which Vegas show is great to see.

I have seen La Reve and am looking for something else that is great. Thanks.

If you don't have access at home to Broadway-style shows, Jersey Boys is a great choice. Likewise The Lion King, depending on your dates (it's closing soon).

Of the Cirque du Soleil shows, LOVE is a wonderful show. My other favorites, more in the traditional CdS mold are O, Mystere and KA.

Headliners in recurring shows; depending on your dates, you might choose from Elton John, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion or Donny & Marie.

Adult-themed shows; Peepshow is a lot of fun. Crazy Horse Paris is "classier," but I found it dull. Fantasy is another option, along with Zumanity.

All Other; Lots of people will also recommend: Terry Fator, Vinnie Favorito, Carrot Top and Penn & Teller.

There's loads of great entertainment available, if you have some idea of what type of show you're looking for, folks can make more specific recommendations.

Of the three I have only seen Love which I thought was so amazing I may see it again when I am there in January. Mystere is also very good. Just remember when booking your tickets that for CDS shows closer is not always better.

We will be going next weekend and we have a casino host that will be taking care of the tickets. I really have no idea what shows we would like because we never usually do this sort of thing. Open to all options! I am looking at the suggestions I have seen so far!

My favorite Cirque shows remain Love (with the emphasis on the music) and Mystere. I didn't think O was all that good (Le Reve was much better IMHO) and I didn't like Ka at all. I haven't seen Zumanity, but I have some friends who did and they all agree it was not sexy or risque- it was just lame and silly- eye rolling silly.

My favorite non-Cirque shows- Jersey Boys and Le Reve.

I hated BMG. I would rather take an ice pick to my eyes and ears before seeing it again. But I know I am in the minority on this issue.

Do NOT go to see Zumanity!!!!

We were there in June and were recommended this show - Love was sold out but it was pointless to be honest - a waste of money!

Blue Man Group are EXCELLENT! We went to this as well in June and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hard to describe this show but it's great fun - if you sit in the first few rows they'll give you a mac so that you don't get covered in paint LOL ..

Love is supposed to be FAB! My brother in law is just back and he loved it.

Vegas is amazing - adult playground. You're lucky :)

Love & Mystere get the best overall reviews of all CDs shows. I thought LOVE was very good.

Zumanity is very risque, keep that in mind.

Blue Man group people seem to either love or hate. Hate may be strong, more like "I don't get it"

I love this thread with all the conflicting opinions! I love BMG (seen it 5 times, plus 2 concert tours) from the music to the humour. I've never seen anything like it and love how it all comes together.

O (seen it twice) is stunning, beautiful music, great set and an incredible production.

Love (seen it once, will go again) was very well done, especially how it used The Beatles music to tell a story and the girl who performed during Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds made it so magical.

And I really enjoyed Zumanity (seen it twice). It was great fun, not risque but very enjoyable.

I would say O. It's an expensive show to see if you have to pay for yourself but it's really worth it and the set is like nothing I've ever seen. I want to see it again and keep playing the soundtrack which is wonderful. It's possibly the best production I've ever seen.

Cirque shows all have high energy....make sure you look at their website...as an alternative to someone taking care of the tickets...we joined and got very good discounts...

We preferred Love..that being said we just saw Mystere and paid very little to sit 8 rows from the front...

Having seen most of the shows in last 2 years including many of the concerts...Rod Stewart was fun....

For my money...the best was Jersey Boys...great story....great music and will see again in February
