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.After all, we’ve all been there; lying around on a hazy gold afternoon, humming along to “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hey Jude” or another Beatles classic that has made its way onto the soundtrack of our life… There is just no getting around the fact that The Beatles are a musical home base of sorts.Since their heyday, The Beatles have awakened the dormant minds of waiting generations with their collection of hits that venture far beyond the lyrics and deep into a well-lit (innuendo totally intended) world of musical surrealism. But while capturing the essence of The Beatles is comparable to capturing lightning in a mason jar, Cirque du Soleil has managed to, quite literally, bend the rules of reality and bring the mystical and slightly psychedelic story of the enchanting, four-man band and the time in which they lived to life.Show Director Dominic Champagne calls The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil a "rock 'n' roll poem." The show is a 90-minute 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” booms through the speakers to serve as the adrenaline-pumping soundtrack for four fuzzy rollerblade-clad daredevils. With stunts worthy of making Tony Hawk nervous, audience members are astounded by flips, spins and other tricks performed on this 11-foot-tall, center stage half pipe."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.

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."

What would a magician do when his act gets mixed reviews for having too much going on and too much filler?He'd make those parts disappear, of course.And in true magical fashion, he makes them re-appear as something much better.The recently revamped Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil brings out more of what Angel's fans have been clamoring for in the first place: magic.This production has seen some significant changes in response to feedback from guests and critics alike, and the end result is a highly focused and entertaining show.Criss Angel Believe takes his illusions and stage presence, combined with the flair and artistry Cirque is best known for -- with just enough of each to make fans of both happy.Although the magic acts in Criss Angel Believe form a loosely-connected narrative, this story is secondary to wowing the audience with illusions. From levitation to "how'd-he-do-it?" disappearances, Angel brings out all the acts he has made famous on "Mindfreak" and then some, along with some more traditional illusions with an added "Mindfreak" twist to them.From the theater itself to the set pieces used during Angel's performance, the whole atmosphere is dark with gothic accents, reminiscent of old-fashioned circuses and carnivals with a morbid twist.Angel's back-and-forth interaction with the audience throughout the show keeps things interesting, but his bumbling assistants -- four "ushers" named Maestro, Luigi, Slim and Lars --  ensure that the whole experience, from start to finish, inspires both awe and laughter. Expect lots of dark humor, as Angel has snappy commentary to accompany many of his illusions."You're applauding this woman being cut in half. Really, that's horrible. Just horrible," he says with a sarcastic grin, after a scaled-up take on the classic "saw a woman in half" trick. We've never thought about it like that, but Angel generally has an entirely different way of thinking about these illusions than your average magician does.If you've ever wanted to be a part of a larger-than-life, stage version of Angel's "Mindfreak" program -- this is the show to see.-- Staff report

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. He started out as a headliner at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is now LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and later moved to The Mirage. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report
