Get a taste of a more sensuous side of reality with Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity at New York-New York. This show explores the different realms of sexuality through stunning imagery, aerialists, comical vignettes and sultry dancing. Unlike other Cirque du Soleil productions, Zumanity has no storyline. Instead, this highly eroticized, cabaret-style spectacular has an array of unique characters whose performances are each themed by different elements of sexuality.Before the show starts, characters appear in the audience for some playful interaction."If you are visiting Las Vegas and living la vida loca make some noise!" exclaims Antonio, the first character to appear. His irresistible charm, flirtatious personality and shiny gold suit captivate the audience.While he gets the crowd aroused with some jokes, the voluptuous Botero twin sisters, dressed in racy French maid outfits, squeeze their way through the aisles. Everyone laughs as the sisters find themselves in awkward positions reaching or bending over guests while trying to hand out fresh strawberries.Little by little, Antonio and the twins make their way to the stage with a parade of other intriguing characters as the real show begins. The show's Emcee, Edie, "the Mistress of Sensuality," is played by a flawless looking drag queen who explains that she will be your tour guide on your journey through the many facets of lust, passion and sensuality.Intense drum beats fill the theater as a savage looking dancer, dressed in little more than a beaded loin cloth, performs an African tribal dance of uninhibited passion. The music intensifies as he gyrates and thrusts his body to the beat of the drums.As new performers take the stage, the tone changes from subtle flirtations to that of hedonistic pleasure. The transition of acts and moods emulates the surge of various emotions that arise in every romantic relationship.Edie reappears to introduce the next act, a slower more sensual number that conveys innocence in the face of sinful indulgence."Do you remember your first wet kiss?" asks Edie as a large bowl of water and two beautiful women appear on stage. They slip into the water and gracefully make their way to the bowl's edge for a series of incredible and sensuous poses.The different acts and performers not only explore the many sides of sexuality but they also demonstrate the amazing capabilities of the human body.The tone of the show then transforms into that of flirtatious fun as a striking woman dressed in a sexy schoolgirl outfit performs an act with hula hoops. After spinning a few hoops she takes to flight by grabbing a rope hanging from the ceiling. She gracefully twists and poses above the stage while continuing to spin the hoops in mid-air.Each of the performers is unique in their personalities and appearances, promoting the idea that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.The Bolero sisters, along with a hilarious husband and wife duo, Mr. Dick and Mrs. Ginger, appear throughout the show for some comic relief. They turn some of the more taboo topics on sex into a source of laughter and fun for the audience.Elena, a gorgeous and sweet dancer, does a tantalizing routine on top of a television in attempt to grab the attention of her football-focused partner. Her sultry dance moves excite everyone in the audience.There are no topics off limits as Zumanity explores some of the darker sides of sex. Laetitia performs an exercise in self-inflicted pleasure and pain as she wraps herself in leather straps hanging from the ceiling. She uses the straps as a device for torture and teasing as she elegantly transitions into new poses while hanging above the stage.This intense scene is followed by a more romantic number with a male and female aerialist duo who perform a stunning dance using a white curtain hanging from the ceiling. They dazzle the audience with their graceful choreography in mid air before making their way back to the stage.Zumanity's uninhibited theme is a refreshing break from the norm. It takes an amusing look at sexuality and reminds us all that intimacy should always be about having fun.-- By Caroline Fontein

We heard recently that there’s a Paris in France. We’ll forgive them for copying us. We know every other city wants to be Vegas. But since we’re the one and only Las Vegas, and since our Paris has incredible architectural features like the Arc de Triomphe, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and La Fontaine des Mers at the Place de la Concorde, as well as the famed Eiffel Tower, we know exactly where you’ll want to spend your next Parisian getaway.Of all the magnificent aspects of this hotel, we know what you want to see first. Cross Le Pont Alexandre III, step into the beautiful glass elevator, and ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower which boasts spectacular views of the Fountains of Bellagio, the Strip and the outlying city. Where else in the world can you scale such an artistic piece of engineering and look down upon an Elvis impersonator dancing on the sidewalk to a Zach Galifianakis look alike? And where else in the world would you want to so badly? That’s just a taste of the magic that awaits you at Paris Las Vegas.Once you’ve got your souvenir cocktail from the Arc Bar outside, move into the casino to see what they’ve done with the other three legs of the Eiffel Tower. Sure, one of them is bathrooms – or Le Toilettes if you’re fancy – but the others bring together an atmosphere of light and poise that few modern hotels can match. The openness, which is enhanced by the blue sky-simulated ceiling, lampposts, lifelike leafy trees, breathtaking fountains and cobblestone walkways, will make you instantly understand why France is so jealous of our Paris. They can keep their endless vineyards and signature toast. We’ve got Gustav’s Casino Bar and Mon Ami Gabi -- a chic bar and brasserie featuring sophisticated bistro fare such as warm brie cheese, escargots, onion soup au gratin, crêpes and quiches. This restaurant was also the first to initiate outdoor patio dining on the Strip and routinely ends up on our "Best of" lists. So now you can sound even smarter when you’re talking about it.Entertainment at Paris Las Vegas is also très enchanting. (That’s the French word for very, not the Spanish word for three. “Three enchanting” wouldn’t make any sense.) The resort draws together headliners, cultural programs and exceptional performers. Le Théâtre des Arts houses the beloved Tony award-winning musical "Jersey Boys." And hypnotist Anthony Cools currently hosts an adults-only show during which audience members are invited onstage and then do unexpected things at his command (usually of an embarrassing and inappropriate nature). They say you can only be hypnotized if deep down you really want to be. So apparently some Vegas guests really want to do some hilariously messed up stuff on stage.If you’d rather just blame your poor choices and out of control behavior on booze and loud music, Chateau Nightclub includes a stunning interior complete with a vaulted ceiling, ornate chandeliers, sleek furnishings and rich fabrics as well as The Terrace overlooking the action on the Strip. Together these hotspots create a night full of magic and wonder that will make you wonder the next day what magic happened in your head.For something more upscale and less throbbing, world-class musicians regularly take the stage at Napoleon's, a dimly lit lounge that also serves more than 100 labels of champagne. And Le Cabaret Lounge hosts traditional cabaret evenings along with bands singing your favorite standards and pop songs in English and sometimes French.The the quick-tempered star of "Hell's Kitchen" opened Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas. But don’t worry, he rarely screams at paying customers – but maybe if you ask politely. Chef J. Joho presides over the elegant Eiffel Tower Restaurant, situated 11 stories above the Strip. Steve Martorano serves up homestyle Italian cuisine at Martorano's at Paris. Le Burger Brasserie puts a French twist on an American food classic. And the Sugar Factory, a sweets lover's paradise, offers excellent people watching on Las Vegas Boulevard. That’s a lot of incredible food. And it’s not even including Le Village Buffet yet. Clearly Paris Las Vegas is not a place where you’ll go hungry or go without an exceptional meal.Paris Las Vegas guests can also indulge in exotic pampering treatments such as Balinese massages and body polishes at the Paris Spa by Mandara. It includes a state-of-the-art fitness center as well as a relaxation lounge, sauna and steam room. The two-acre rooftop pool is another stunning facility with an outdoor café (du Parc) and luxurious private cabanas.Don’t get confused. There’s that knock-off in France with the sprawling streets and Beaux-Arts architecture, but this isn’t that. Accept no substitutes. When you’re looking for an elegant, enchanting and extravagant affair, Paris Las Vegas is the center of light and romance for you and anyone you happen to love.

What a zoo! But a clean zoo.
PostedApril 3, 2013
The service was good, considering the volume of people. Only bad experience I had was the Burger Brasserio(?) Seats are uncomfortable at bar, food was obnoxious, service was ok...couldn't get any water. Food service was slow everywhere, but I think just so many people to keep up with.
