No, it's not your average bachelor's view of saying "I do." Marriage Can Be Murder is an award-winning interactive comedy and murder mystery dinner experience where the audience members become part of the show. If you liked the movie "Clue," then this is a dinner show that you will want to sink your teeth into.Anyone can be a suspect as actors are not readily apparent among the seemingly innocent guests. You might be seated next to another patron or maybe even the murder suspect, but only time will tell as the night unravels and more clues are revealed.Guests are seated at banquet tables. Salad and warm rolls are served first, followed by an entrée with your choice of chicken, beef or fish and cheesecake for dessert. DD, a sometimes ditzy and sometimes clued-in blonde, is your host for the evening. DD assigns some guests roles including doctor or pallbearer who are called to service each time someone is murdered."This guy has sax appeal," says DD as she stops by one male guest who looks like he would be a good fit for the processional band.Each guest has a game card that DD refers to as sleuth pad. The card has a space for your name and a place to write who the victim and killer are and what the motive is for each of the four murders that take place during the show.After the first murder, police Lt. Eric Post arrives. Wearing too short and fitted khaki shorts, Post makes the audience laugh before he even opens his mouth. He interrogates guests while consulting DD for some background information."This guy's name was Dan Druff?" asks Post."He was flaky," replies DD.The entire show is filled with funny one-liners like this as DD, Post and a few other wacky characters attempt to find the killer. After the main course is served, there's a short break where people can mingle, discuss the murders and get the names of other guests and potential suspects. During this time, some people get out of their seats while others chat amongst themselves. You can be as involved or uninvolved with this show as you want and still have a good time.Making murder a laughing matter doesn't seem possible, but husband and wife team Eric and Jayne Post, who star as the lieutenant and DD in the show, have no problem stirring up laughs with their comical banter. They created the four-dimensional theater concept more than 20 years ago. It's the longest-running dinner show in Las Vegas with more than 10 years of success."Guests keep coming back to see the show because they enjoy the interaction of characters on stage and in the crowd. Our audience members love that they are submerged into the action and with their reactions, each show takes on a different twist and turn," said Post.Marriage Can Be Murder combines comedy and suspense to keep you guessing through dessert. So get out your magnifying glass and detective hat for a night of mystery and fun.-- By Caroline Fontein

If you're looking for a show that's a fusion of acrobatics, dance and visual effects, accompanied by a classic rock 'n' roll soundtrack, then all you need is LOVE.Show Director Dominic Champagne calls The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil a "rock 'n' roll poem." The show is a slightly psychedelic journey through the trends and politics of the '60s and most importantly, The Beatles' history, told through nearly 30 of the group's songs.LOVE started out as a collaboration between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil's Guy LaLiberté. After Harrison's death, the remaining Beatles and the families of the late group members helped bring Harrison's vision to life, sharing their ideas about song selection and song order for the show.The music director for LOVE is none other than Sir George Martin, who is best known for his work producing The Beatles' music. Martin's son, Giles, is also a music director for the show.Although LOVE features some well-known Beatles songs, it is not meant to be a greatest hits show.The journey starts with the energetic "Get Back" at the scene of The Beatles' farewell concert and then flashes back to Liverpool during World War II when the band members were young children.No journey through the '60s would be complete without a trip through the era of Beatlemania. Acrobats and tumblers on trampolines perform, accompanied by "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Drive My Car.""Help" serves as the soundtrack for four extreme sports athletes who take the stage leaping 11 foot ramps on inline skates."Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Octopus's Garden" are the perfect backdrops for Cirque's famous aerial ballet moves.The show even features a "jam session" created from authentic recordings of the four band members. All of the audio clips and music in the show are from actual recordings from The Beatles' Abbey Road studio.The show concludes with its namesake "All You Need is Love," as a montage of photos of The Beatles plays on huge screens, leaving the audience with a feeling of nostalgia for a bygone era.Besides The Beatles, the other star of the show is the 2,000-plus seat theater itself, which features 360-degree seating. There is not a bad seat in the house and the farthest is only 98 feet from the stage.The sound system is unlike any other - there are 6,341 speakers in the theater and patrons feel as though they are completely enveloped in sound. There are three speakers per seat -- two in each headrest and one in the seat in front of you.The theater also features a complex video system with 28 projectors and two 20-foot-high by 100-foot-wide screens, which contribute to the visual experience.LOVE is not a typical Cirque du Soleil show with high-flying trapeze artists, gymnasts and acrobats. Although there is some of that in the show, it is mainly a theatrical and dance-oriented show. The creators also wanted to bring a bit of the youth of today into the show, showcasing extreme sports, break dancing and street dancing.In the end, it's all about the music and if you're a fan of The Beatles, you'll have nothing but love for this show.-- By Kristine McKenzie
