A gigantic baby? A gigantic, inflatable snail? OK, we slurped down our drinks before they could be spiked so, what gives with the hallucinations? Well, the catch is that there is no catch – you’re just at a Cirque du Soleil show and a damn good one at that. Like fine art, the storyline of Mystère at Treasure Island is left up to individual interpretation. But one thing about this production is for sure: this show, which also happens to be the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas, is so entertaining you’ll want to stay for an encore after the final bow.Oh, and speaking of the performers, we always wonder whether or not these crazy-talented people are even human. They’re like the ultimate example of “don’t try this at home.” They fly, they muscle up poles like tree frogs and make us feel pretty damn bad about not being able to touch our toes. They’re friggin’ amazing, and they have no fear and apparently no bones in their super-bendy bodies.Performing stunts like quadruple flips off see-saws and other sick tricks we average folk couldn’t even dream up if we tried, this show is so unreal you just kinda have to let it happen. Emphasizing family-friendly, awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, Mystère embraces all the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production one of the OG companies on the Las Vegas Strip.

Cirque de Soleil is absolutely a must see
PostedOctober 18, 2013
I can hardly wait to see all of the Cirque de Soleil shows. "Mystere" was incredible. What imagations the creators have. The costumes, the stage, the music and the TALENT....the performers are absolutely amazing.
I wasn't real crazy about the "bouncing baby boy". I really didn't fiind that character very funny at all. In fact, I thought he detracted from the beautiful magic of the show. Leave the "comedy" to the comedians!!!! The little girl was sort of a nice touch.

Ladies and gentlemen, let us take you back to the golden age of Las Vegas. The days of the Rat Pack, smooth jazz music and classic glamour. The days when nightclubs were swanky lounges and the performers were your friends. Let us transport you to a time where the Las Vegas showgirl was the apex of beauty and actually being a showgirl was an honor in and of itself.Sounds like a pretty good time, doesn't it? Well it is and lucky for all of us, Donn Arden’s "Jubilee" is the legacy of those glorious days in full splendor six nights a week at Bally's Las Vegas.This extravagant production, which debuted in 1981, oozes every bit of glitz and class that it did in its heyday. It maintains the authenticity of Donn Arden's original vision through preserving the dance numbers and strutting original costumes and jewelry. Watching this show is equivalent to hopping back into history via a time machine.Having outlasted every showgirl production in Vegas, "Jubilee" is not only the longest-running show in Vegas, but is also the one of the few shows left in the world with authentic showgirls.Yes, you're thinking correctly – feather-clad, diamond-drenched, bust-bearing, beautiful showgirls. Touting a cast of nearly 100 professionally trained, long-legged showgirls and showboys who kick, dance, sing and shimmy their way through 95 minutes of continuous over-the-top numbers, "Jubilee" doesn't leave a single detail out.Performed on a stage that is considered to be among the most technologically advanced in the world (oh, and it's half the size of a football field), "Jubilee" is known for grand set pieces such as the scaled replica of the Titanic, Samson and Delilah props and the award-worthy finale staircase that you simply must see.In addition to the incredible dancers, "Jubilee" features three singers who entertain the audience with top-notch vocal numbers to allow for costume and set changes (there are 11 full-scale costume changes seamlessly woven into the show.)While the original dance numbers are still performed in the show, a few additions have been implemented in order to keep the production fresh and retain its longevity. By adding advance technology such as larger sound systems, projection features and a couple popular music tracks, "Jubilee" has not changed, rather, like a fine wine (or George Clooney), it has only gotten better with time.   Furthermore, "Jubilee" is one of the only shows on the Strip that offers exclusive backstage tours to the curious. Giving individuals a rare and in-depth look behind the scenes and into the history of the dressing, costume and set rooms, the hour-long backstage tour is led by one of the seasoned dancers before the show that evening. Not only is this tour neat, but you'll be able to appreciate the show and the effort of the dancers when you learn things like the weight of some of those iconic headpieces… the heaviest weighs in at a whopping 25 pounds.Whether you're looking for nostalgia's elixir or interested in shaking hands with Vegas for the first time, it's always a sure bet when you're betting on the timeless classic and sparkling entertainment gem that is "Jubilee."

The show was absolutely breathtaking.
PostedOctober 18, 2013
I don't know when I have enjoyed a show as much as I did Jubilee. The Bob Mackie costumes were beyond description. The production numbers, the dancing, the music, the special effects, everything was just above and beyond my wildest expectations. This was my first Las Vegas
show and I almost turned around and went back in the see it again..
Will certainly go again next time I'm in Las Vegas. Someone told me that the show is going to shut down for a "makeover". I would not change a thing. " If it's not broke don't fix it". Please, please don't ruin a perfectly spectactular and wonderous show!!!!!!

can teenage above 18 watch the show?

can teenage above 18 watch the show?
Absolutely. I saw the topless show and it was very tastefully done. I can't see where anyone would be offended.
