Don't blink, you might miss something. Actually, you might miss a lot. That's what audiences at V - The Ultimate Variety show will want to remember. This fast-paced, high-energy show features an exciting lineup of specialty acts from around the world. During the 75-minute revue you'll see about seven different acts take the stage.New performers are constantly being added to the show's roster, so you never know exactly who you're going to see that night. Some of the recurring acts include: master juggler Wally Eastwood; the Skating Aratas; The Crazy Gauchos from Argentina Eduardo Lomé and Hugo Latorre; Ukrainian rhythmic gymnast Tamara Yeroffyeva; Melinda - First Lady of Magic; and comedian Russ Merlin.The show's variety format stems from the days when shows used to feature a specialty act to supplement the main production. In some instances, those specialty acts became the stars of the show. At V - The Ultimate Variety Show, all of those stars get a chance to shine in one amazing revue. The varied lineup makes this show a great option if you're traveling with a group and looking for a show that has a little something for everyone.Eastwood is both the host and a performer in the show. His infectious energy sets the pace for the whirlwind of talent about to take the stage. Eastwood has been described as having "the fastest hands on Earth," and it's easy to see why. He performs several different routines throughout the show, including juggling ping pong balls with his mouth and playing Beethoven's "Für Elise" by bouncing rubber balls on an electronic keyboard. Not only does he amaze, but Eastwood makes people laugh. His happy-go-lucky attitude paired with his self-deprecating humor is a winning combination.The Skating Aratas kick things into high gear with their daring acrobatic skating act. Performed by husband and wife Victor and Jenny Arata, their act is done on a small platform on an area of the stage that extends into the crowd. Victor propels the duo in a high-speed spin while lifting and spinning Jenny in the air in a series of awe-inspiring poses. The limited performance space, paired with their risky routine is nothing short of amazing.Dressed in traditional garb, The Crazy Gauchos perform an exhilarating drum routine. They stomp their feet in perfect time to the upbeat rhythm resounding from their drums. They enliven the audience with their wild sense of humor.The mood changes from uproarious laughter to awe as Yeroffyeva, a former Olympic gymnast, enters. Tall and lean, her graceful movements enchant the audience as she demonstrates spinning a hula hoop on her legs or arms while contorting into various different postures. Her flexibility is mind-boggling.After a more than 10-year hiatus from the stage, Melinda - The First Lady of Magic is back in Vegas amazing audiences. A mother of two, Melinda makes it hard to believe she's ever stopped performing. She was the only female magician to have her own headlining magic show on the Strip in the ’90s. As part of the cast at V, Melinda does three main illusions with the help of her female assistants/dancers.Merlin performs a comedy act with four volunteers from the audience. Each volunteer is given an outrageous mask to wear and assigned a different gesture to make when Merlin taps them on the shoulder. It's not long before the entire audience is laughing at the hilarious scene he creates on stage.If you are looking for a night of big laughs paired with an assortment of awe-inspiring entertainment, V -The Ultimate Variety Show has it all.

Great Show!!
PostedSeptember 7, 2013
The actors, the show was great! The show room was very small, the area for such GOOD performers was very small, the sound system could have been better, probably if they had done the show in a bigger show room.
Under the circumstances of a small show room, these guys are GREAT!
I do recommend it.

Even if you get covered in popcorn, you won't want to stop the clown from posing as an usher and engaging in some pre-show debauchery with the crowd. With his black suit and disheveled gray hair, he has no problem amusing people. The clown is zany, mischievous and your first exposure to the unknown at Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. What's ahead is a wondrous world of mystifying creatures who perform a series of incredible acrobatic and gymnastic feats.When Mystère opened in 1993, the show was the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas. Emphasizing awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, it embraces all of the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production company a mainstay on the Las Vegas Strip.From rebirth to the pursuit of happiness, each of the characters and acts in Mystère symbolizes something different. They combine to create an overall theme for the show as a celebration of the circle of life. Some audience members may interpret each act as an allegory, but with the innovative costumes and performances, realizing those themes isn't necessary for enjoying this show.What makes Mystère so endearing is that many of the performances are typical circus-style acts like the flying trapeze, an aerialist and the teeterboard, an acrobatic tool where a person jumps on one end of what looks like a seesaw and the person on the other end is launched into the air. However, in Mystère, the boundaries of those disciplines are pushed, creating fantastical routines that you won't see in any other production.For instance, in the hand-to-hand routine, two muscular men demonstrate a series of gravity-defying poses and their incredible strength, but they don't even perform on a flat surface. In Mystère, the men do this while balancing on a rotating dome, adding to the awesomeness of their routine.The Tissu act is another example. In this routine a female aerialist performs while suspending herself with two pieces of fabric hanging from the ceiling. This type of act can be seen in other shows on the Strip, but in Mystère the performer combines contortion, acrobatics and movement in her routine, creating optical illusions that defy imagination.Music played by live musicians and singers drives the show. Mixing elements of everything from rock to Celtic, African and soul music, the soundtrack is just as mysterious as the action on stage.Along with awe-inspiring moments, Mystère offers a hearty does of comedy brought on by the clown "usher" and an adult-sized baby. They appear on stage throughout the show. The clown and baby don’t tell jokes, but their wacky antics and interactions with the audience make people laugh. It's hard not to chuckle when you see a man on stage wearing a diaper and a bonnet.When the comedy segments come to a close, the show quickly changes pace. Once again the audience is sitting in amazement at another thrilling routine. One of these is the Chinese Poles. For this act a group of gymnasts perform on four vertical poles. They crawl, jump and flip up, down and across the poles. Their masks add to the implausibility of their performance. While their bodies face away from the audience, their masks are looking right at them. It seems impossible, but then again, this is Mystère.-- By Caroline Fontein
