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

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.

The fabulous feathered headpieces, the rhinestone embellished costumes, the beautiful, long-legged (and topless) showgirls – this is Jubilee.Jubilee is more than a topless revue. It is the only remaining showgirl production in Las Vegas. Choreographer and producer Donn Arden opened the show in 1981, bringing to the stage over-the-top dance numbers and elaborate sets, such as those telling the stories of the sinking of the Titanic and the Bible's Samson and Delilah.The show was reworked in early 2014 by choreographer Frank Gatson Jr., who attempted to stay true to Arden's original vision.Arden made his mark in Vegas when he produced one of the first showgirl production shows, Lido de Paris, for the Las Vegas Strip in 1958.Many of the original elements remained with this latest incarnation, including the grand opening and finale numbers with dozens of Vegas showgirls and showboys descending a grand staircase.The music has been updated, as has the theater's sound system, lending itself to a crisper sound. Although the stellar vocalists are singing to canned music, the sound is decidedly more modern, with a primarily R&B flair.In the new production, the show introduces Miss Jubilee and her glow stick-carrying, faceless companions. An unseen narrator announces that Miss Jubilee must travel back in time because "her rightful place is on the Las Vegas Strip … and her journey (is) to reclaim the night."She travels through the Valley of Sorek, where Samson and Delilah's ill-fated love story takes place, only to make her way onto the equally doomed Titanic "to find true love."Miss Jubilee makes her way to America, where tap dancing showgirls greet her to the tune of "You're a Grand Old Flag." The performers take on energetic dance routines that span American choreography (think swing, tap and hip hop), getting the audience to their feet.Gatson, who is pop superstar Beyoncé's creative director, told Vegas.com he took special care to stay true to Arden's vision, all the while adding new dances and the storyline of Miss Jubilee.-- By Nicole Lucht

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.
