Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

You have probably seen him on television performing incredible illusions such as making the Statue of Liberty disappear, navigating the rapids of Niagara Falls and flying over the Grand Canyon. Master magician David Copperfield seems to have done it all. His show in Las Vegas is a unique opportunity for audiences to see these larger-than- life illusions performed live and up close in the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand.Of course he can't exactly re-create all of them, but he demonstrates similar and equally amazing illusions using objects that are more suitable for a stage setting.Copperfield alludes to an illusion he did where he walked through the Great Wall of China and then explains that he is going to re-create that same illusion using a large metal sheet as the indestructible medium through which he will effortlessly pass.The metal sheet is placed on a raised platform, and Copperfield has two audience members come on stage to test it out by walking on it and hitting it with a rubber hammer.Next, he lies under the piece of metal, and four assistants hold a sheet over Copperfield and the platform. The assistants spin the platform around proving to the audience that there is no way out except by going through the metal. First you see just a finger poking through and then, within seconds, he miraculously appears on top of the metal sheet.This is just one of the mind-boggling magic tricks that he performs in the show. As the epitome of master magicians, Copperfield takes his illusions to another level of excitement and awe. Instead of doing the typical box trick where a woman is sliced in half, he locks himself in a box that begins to shrink in size. He smiles at the audience while moving his hands and feet as the box gets so small the entire length of his body has been reduced to mere inches.The box gradually gets bigger and Copperfield hops onto the stage saying, "that's how they made mini me," before moving on to his next illusion. He integrates his casual and comical personality into every act, resulting in laughter from the crowd.Audience interaction is a big part of the show as he incorporates a person picked at random for almost every illusion. You might even see him doing magic right in front of your seat when he performs illusions while standing in the audience. For one illusion he asks a woman to join him in the aisle on the side of the theater. He asks the woman to examine a piece of tissue paper before he rolls it into a ball and makes it levitate and dance along his arm with the tap of a finger.Unlike other magic shows in Las Vegas, Copperfield does not implement flashy showgirls, dancing or over the top production elements to supplement his illusions. His magic has enough of a wow factor on its own.His expertise as a magician dates back to when he was just 12 years old and started performing professionally. That same year he also became the youngest person ever to be admitted to the Society of American Magicians. From there, Copperfield went on to teach a course on magic at New York University when he was 16.During his first year in college, Copperfield starred in the Chicago musical, "The Magic Man," and as a result of the show's success he was selected to host ABC's "The Magic of ABC." From there he was offered his own series of specials with CBS titled "The Magic of David Copperfield." The series has been aired in over 40 countries.His illustrious career has made him a Guinness Book of World Record holder for having 21 Emmys, and he has a star on the Hollywood "Walk of Fame." Apart from his revue in Vegas, he continues to tour, performing sold out shows around the world.His enduring presence as a magician and integration into pop culture and even postage stamps proves that Copperfield's magic has no boundaries.He even demonstrates his ability to predict the future in an act where he gets people from the audience to provide him with different numbers that he later pulls from a box that has been hanging above the stage for the entire show.If just having the numbers on paper is not impressive enough, Copperfield also reveals a cassette tape with a recording of himself reciting the numbers that he plays for the audience. It is an astonishing feat that amazes everyone with the impossibility of it all.-- By Caroline Fontein

Leave reality behind and experience the fantastical world of Le Rêve, created by Franco Dragone, at Wynn. French for the dream, Le Rêve, depicts a colorful aquatic wonderland of beautiful and mystifying characters. The experience starts when you first enter the theater and realize that this is not your typical showroom. The circular 1608-seat theater is situated around a pool that is 68-and-a-half-feet in diameter with the furthest seat only 42 feet from the water. The 27-foot-deep pool is kept at a comfortable 89 degrees Fahrenheit.Not only does the in-the-round theater put guests at a unique vantage point, but it also makes them feel like they are part of the show as there is no clear line between the audience and the stage. Gymnasts, aerialists and synchronized swimmers appear from every angle, at times ascending from the water, descending from the high arched ceiling or running through the theater and alongside the audience. If you are seated by an aisle, you never know when you are going to look to your side and see a masked face or other curious character staring right back at you.Le Rêve has a loosely woven storyline that begins with a woman and man dancing and then saying goodnight and goodbye to each other. The man departs the stage, and the woman lies down to rest on a bed. Together the woman and the bed slowly disappear underwater, signifying that her spectacular dream is about to begin.The music changes from soft and mysterious to loud and invigorating as creatures of the night arise from the water and emerge from the aisles and make their way to center stage. Some of them look playful and fun while others have a more malevolent appearance. Aerialists are lowered from the ceiling to join in the revelry, and soon the pool is transformed into a spectacular ring of fire.This is one of the many different scene changes in the show that takes place on a platform in the middle of the pool capable of rising 15 feet above the water. There are three additional lifts that enable performers to enter from backstage without having to get wet. They can disappear and reappear in seconds, creating a constantly changing stage area. Special lighting and water effects and a stimulating soundtrack performed live add to Le Rêve's spectacular production elements.Rain pours from the ceiling, smothering the ring of fire and revealing a bevy of beautiful women and then men who seem to materialize from the water. A tall, rotating, tree-like platform rises from the pool where male gymnasts do incredible poses and dives.Different acts and performers seamlessly flow into each other, resulting in a fast-paced and exciting journey where each scene is more amazing than the next. One of the signature acts in the show is a tango number performed with both synchronized swimmers in the pool and tantalizing tango dancers on the platform. It begins with red high heels and then legs appearing from the water and moving around to the upbeat rhythm of the music. Couples enter the platform creating a multi-level dance extravaganza.During another dance sequence, men with large white billowing fans walk onto the stage while the woman, whose character is dreaming, performs a whimsical dance routine. Beautiful patterns created by colorful lights are displayed on the fans as they seem to float and gracefully move above the stage. The audience also gets a view of the woman dancing on stage as a beautiful silhouette behind the fans.While the performers dazzle the audience on stage, in the air and from the water, what's going on behind the scenes is just as amazing. During the show there are 16 divers who aid performers underwater. There are also 100 hookah regulators in the pool to help performers travel underwater or to assist them when they are performing with their heads submerged for long periods of time.The fast-paced show means quick costume changes for the performers and a lot of running up and down stairs to get in position for their next act. A wardrobe attendant is on hand to operate one of the theater elevators, moving performers over 40 times during one 75-minute show. Eleven dressers are also working behind the scenes to assist the cast of 91 performers with 2,000 costume items.Back on stage, the cast continues to mystify the audience with more incredible performances. A lamppost is lowered with a man wearing pants and a suit jacket effortlessly leaning on it. As the lamppost hangs in mid-air the man balances his body away from the post and horizontal to the ground using only his incredible strength and agility to achieve this feat.Three more dream-like characters are lowered in a wire framed globe where they perform an amazing routine suspended above the water. They weave their way through the open frame and hang off of one another, creating a series of beautiful poses as the globe is lowered and then raised to different heights above the water. It is just one of many awe-inspiring moments in Le Rêve.Champagne CircleGuests who purchase the Champagne Circle seats get an extra special viewing experience. The Champagne Circle seats are the furthest from the stage but at only 42 feet from the water, this is still a spectacular view. Located foot-level in front of the Champagne Circle seats is a screen that shows pre-recorded backstage footage of the show before it starts. Once the lights go dim and the show begins, the screens give guests a live behind-the-scenes view of the performers when they are underwater, backstage or descending from more than 80 feet above the stage. During a synchronized swimming routine when only the performers legs are visible to the audience, the screens allow guests seated in the Champagne Circle to see how the swimmers manage to stay underwater for so long, one of the many intricacies that go into putting on this extravagant show. The Champagne Circle experience also includes complimentary champagne bottle service and a tray of two chocolate covered strawberries and six savory chocolate truffles.-- By Caroline Fontein

A great alternative to Cirque
PostedMarch 4, 2013
Had VIP seats in back - best seats in the house by far! There is so much going on at times in multiple locations within the theater that seats closer would miss the action.
Unbelievable feats of strength, agility and control. Great humor too.
A real WOW of a show!!!

Unassumingly located in the Roman Plaza just steps from the front entrance of Caesars Palace, "Absinthe" the show is just as entertaining as the drink is enchanting and both undoubtedly pack a delightful yet powerful punch.The exterior of the humdrum tent that houses the exuberant performance is modestly decorated with just several strands of blinking lights. However, with your first step into the structure, you will find that you have stumbled into the whimsical realm of Spiegelworld -- a world apart from reality that relentlessly devours inhibition and dissolves time.Stained glass mirrors and a mismatched collection of knickknacks hang from the kitschy artifact-adorned walls and an assortment of antique benches and chairs compose the seating for the theater in the round. Lacking refinement in the utmost of ways, the all-encompassing ambiance and experience of this adults-only, circus-style spectacular make "Absinthe" a rabbit hole you will be charmed to fall into.Hosted by The Gazillionaire -- a slick-haired, unreserved and crass yet charismatic character -- "Absinthe" features an assortment of incredible specialty acts of old-world burlesque, daring feats of strength and agility in addition to not-so-common routines that, when combined, make for a variety show that one might only envision in their wildest dreams -- or after the green fairy has lured you into a liquid-induced trance of sorts."If you're offended by words like f*** or s*** you just might be at the wrong f***in' show," The Gazillionaire frankly announces at the beginning of the show so that you cannot say you haven't been warned. But while the commentary of The Gazillionaire and his, we assume, sexually frustrated assistant Joy Jenkins may -- OK, definitely -- veer towards the naughty side, the acts albeit sexy are more amazing than risqué... unless, of course, the mental stimulation of having your mind blown for an hour is how you get your kicks, then in that case, the latter is reversed.But aside from The Gazillionaire and Joy, who hilariously introduce the acts with a reliable raunchy factor throughout the production, the only other character with a speaking part is the seductive "Green Fairy," who sings and does a burlesque-style striptease that kicks off and wraps up the show.Other acts featured include a chair balancing acrobatic act; tight-rope walkers; a sexy man and woman aerialist team; twin tap dancers; a three-man balancing troupe and various other artists who showcase incredible feats of strength and talent within mere feet of the crowd... so close to the crowd that one of the acts mandates that the front two rows of the audience remained seated for their safety and the safety of the performers.However, if you're willing to brave the up-close action and snag a spot in the front, we can only hope that you're prepared to deal with what The Gazillionaire and Joy may have in store for you. Yes, you may be pulled up on stage for a lap dance contest or you may just be made fun of -- but hey, it's all fun and games and according to The Gazillionaire (OK, and to us as well...obviously) this is a show that gets even better the more you drink so that should soften any spotlight.So go ahead and order a double (triple?) of whatever gets your feel-good flowing, and let this hilariously zany and outlandishly fun production temporarily whisk you away from reality. But don't worry... you won't have -- ahem -- hot dogs drawn on your face when you come to again, well at least not in this portion of your night.

Laughed till I cried
PostedMarch 4, 2013
This is one funny and entertaining show! Mature audiences only!!
If you don't mind vulgar speech, raunchy humor, racist or stereotype jokes, provocative acts, and feats of great skill, then this is the show for you. I laughed so hard I had tears much of the time.
Theater is small and in a tent - probably not a bad seat in the house, but being up close is far better than being in the back!! Front row seats are the best (3 feet from stage), though anyone within close proximity is fair game for audience participation.
