 Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil
Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil
What would a magician do when his act gets mixed reviews for having too much going on and too much filler?He'd make those parts disappear, of course.And in true magical fashion, he makes them re-appear as something much better.The recently revamped Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil brings out more of what Angel's fans have been clamoring for in the first place: magic.This production has seen some significant changes in response to feedback from guests and critics alike, and the end result is a highly focused and entertaining show.Criss Angel Believe takes his illusions and stage presence, combined with the flair and artistry Cirque is best known for -- with just enough of each to make fans of both happy.Although the magic acts in Criss Angel Believe form a loosely-connected narrative, this story is secondary to wowing the audience with illusions. From levitation to "how'd-he-do-it?" disappearances, Angel brings out all the acts he has made famous on "Mindfreak" and then some, along with some more traditional illusions with an added "Mindfreak" twist to them.From the theater itself to the set pieces used during Angel's performance, the whole atmosphere is dark with gothic accents, reminiscent of old-fashioned circuses and carnivals with a morbid twist.Angel's back-and-forth interaction with the audience throughout the show keeps things interesting, but his bumbling assistants -- four "ushers" named Maestro, Luigi, Slim and Lars --  ensure that the whole experience, from start to finish, inspires both awe and laughter. Expect lots of dark humor, as Angel has snappy commentary to accompany many of his illusions."You're applauding this woman being cut in half. Really, that's horrible. Just horrible," he says with a sarcastic grin, after a scaled-up take on the classic "saw a woman in half" trick. We've never thought about it like that, but Angel generally has an entirely different way of thinking about these illusions than your average magician does.If you've ever wanted to be a part of a larger-than-life, stage version of Angel's "Mindfreak" program -- this is the show to see.-- Staff report

Confusion about Cirque d'Soleil
PostedMarch 30, 2013
We booked this based on the show being Criss Angel in conjunction with a typical Cirque d'Soleil show. The reality was very different - it was a Criss Angel show with a few Cirque performers as part of the supporting cast. I was disappointed when I realized it was not a Cirque d'Soleil show. If the description had been more accurate I would have gone to a different show. And for sure I do not think the price of the show was warranted, given that it was not Cirque d'Soleil.

We’re about as indecisive as anyone else on this planet. Like come on, how can you make a decision on which show to see when there are a bazillion of them in Las Vegas? We ask ourselves every time, are we feeling lovey dovey or do we want to go to that rock metal concert down the street? Luckily, we found the solution to all our indecisive problems. V – The Ultimate Variety show gives you every entertainment element packed into one, like a buffet of talent, if you will.And in the true spirit of variety, the production swaps out different performers each night. So who knows if you’ll get street dancer, Turf if you go on a Tuesday? You might end up with Merlin the Magician instead. Talking about the mystery of it all gives us that feeling of truly living on the edge. But if you’re more of a person that needs to be in the know, we’ll give you the deets.There’s the Skating Aratas, a husband and wife duo that pull out the death-defying stunts to get your blood pumping. And then there’s a former rhythmic gymnastics Olympian, Yeroffyeva which will have you in awe with the beauty of her moves. Next up, you might find your way to the streets with Turf, the street dancer who will get the crowd up and moving with his music. Or maybe The Crazy Gauchos will come out with a drum routine you’ll fall in love with.It doesn’t matter which acts come out from behind the curtain, all of them have great talent you can’t help but get googly eyed over all of them. Problem solved indecisive people, this is the Las Vegas show you need to see.

Fun Variety Show
PostedMarch 30, 2013
Most of the acts were enjoyable. The seating was adequate. Not high tech or glitzy but still fun.

My child is 2.5 years old can he attend the show?

I do not think I would take a young child to a Criss Angel show - there is bad language and I think the atmosphere would be scary for a young child. I did not see any babies or young children and we went to the 7:00 show. There were some older kids, 8+ but definitely the jokes were risque.
