Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil brings another incredible production to the Las Vegas Strip at Aria Resort & Casino. Featuring a 70-member cast of world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and high wire and trapeze artists, Zarkana amazes audiences as a story of revival unfolds (and flips, and jumps, and spins, and.. OK, you get it) before your eyes.Set in a zany alternate universe where bizarre meets arcana (Boom! The phonic parents of Zarkana), a wildly eclectic collection of forgotten circus characters and their jaw-dropping talents explore otherworldly scenarios as their washed up extravaganza comes back to life.Tucked into the surprisingly intimate 1,800-seat Aria Theater, all audience members will feel immersed in the experience… especially when the characters burst through the theater’s imaginary fourth wall to soar above the seats. With comic interjections by the show’s two clowns and an on-stage audience of ghostly members of circus’ past who mingle with the audience throughout the production, you might just feel as if you’re a part of the show yourself…sans the uber bendy and flippy parts, which we will leave to the pros (obviously because groin injuries are not ideal).Among the show’s daring acts, audience members will hold their breath while observing the “Wheel of Death,” a high wire act complete with a swinging pendulum ball of raging fire (you know, since performing tricks on a cable a couple dozen feet in the air isn’t dangerous enough), a flying trapeze routine, in addition to an impressive ladder balancing act. However, you will have plenty of time to dry your sweaty palms and settle your anxiety when taking in beautiful (and less life-threatening) acts of endurance and strength when taking in the aerial straps, hand balancing, sand painting, flag manipulation and juggling acts among others as well.And since every Cirque du Soleil show is performed with the musical aid of a live band, audiences will enjoy an all-encompassing musical experience with a lead singer who has seemingly range-less vocals that hit even the most daunting of notes.Similarly, in addition to the production’s 12-song soundtrack, there are intricate set changes that transform the stage to complement every act. Multiple layers of LED screens create stunning visuals that transform from an old circus, to outer space, to a snake-infested jungle, to a spider’s web and others scenes that add to the show’s unique visual experience.But back to the audience involvement, we will not tell you exactly what happens but we will let you know that those clowns we previously mentioned take a little stroll in the audience during the show and do not return to the stage alone. If you’re a female sitting in the first few rows, you just may be selected to join the two comical creatures on stage to help demonstrate their electric chair…let's just say that sparks definitely fly.Basically, in true Cirque du Soleil fashion, “Zarkana” serves audience members a visual treat with seemingly impossible physical feats that blur the line between reality and a wild realm of imagination. So, get your glasses, eye drops, tape… whatever will help you keep your eyes open and not blink because this is one production that you will want to catch every second of.

 Shania Twain
Shania Twain
Shania Twain's show at Caesars Palace is a welcome return for fans of the woman who is one of the biggest stars in country pop music.Twain's 1997 album "Come On Over" skyrocketed the singer to worldwide fame. The album became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician and the best-selling country music album of all time. A five-time Grammy Award-winner, Twain has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, including 50 million albums in the United States. She's the top-selling female country artist of all time and has multiplatinum album sales in 32 countries.Her production at the Colosseum is called Shania: Still the One and she definitely proves she still has that special something that first made her famous.After being away from performing so long it's only fitting that Twain make a big, splashy entrance at the beginning of her show and she succeeds by flying in above the stage on a motorcycle in a sparkling cat suit before launching into "I'm Gonna Getcha Good," the first of many of the hit songs she performs throughout the night.Fans will be delighted to hear all of Twain's familiar tunes during the course of the show like "Don't be Stupid," "You Win My Love," "Whose Bed Have your Boots Been Under?" and "Up!"The stage transforms several times during the show and the next segment features a very country feel with a saloon set and the performers dressed in Old West-style costumes. Performers include a live band with several fiddle players, four energetic male dancers and three backup singers, including Twain's sister Carrie Ann Brown and RyanDan, a Canadian musical, songwriting and producing duo, consisting of identical twins Ryan and Dan Kowarsky.The mood changes to a more rock/pop style and so does Twain's costume -- to a leopard-print outfit similar to the one she wore in the video for "That Don't Impress Me Much." She sings that song, as well as other favorites like "Honey I'm Home" and "If You're not In it for Love (I'm Outta Here!)"Next, the stage is transformed into a campfire setting with a faux fire and a woodsy background on the Colosseum's massive screens. Twain brings a few lucky people up on stage from the audience to sit around the fire and sing acoustic songs. She talks about her favorite memories of singing as a child and with her family before performing a bit of music a capella with her backup singers.After a couple of tunes sung around the campfire, Twain sings a song that might be less familiar to people, but is the newest one she has recorded, "Today is Your Day."One of the biggest highlights of the show comes when she launches into her two huge hit ballads. She wears a flowing white gown and arrives on stage on the back of a beautiful white horse. The screens project birch trees and falling snow in the background as she sings "You're Still the One." The horse is led offstage and billowing white curtains descend as Twain sings "From This Moment On."The show ends with a bang with one of Twain's biggest hits, "Man, I Feel Like a Woman." Confetti is blasted out over the audience and S-H-A-N-I-A is spelled out in massive lights. Throughout the show Twain talks to the audience and clearly enjoys being back on stage. "I realize what I've been missing, thanks to you," she says. Judging by the multiple standing ovations the crowd gives her it's clear they have missed her too.-- By Kristine McKenzie
 

Is it possible for Shania Twain to suddenly schedule a show in the month of June 2013?
