I've always wanted to go to a show similar to the one that's part of the movie "Birdcage" with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. Female impersonator, drag ... whatever you want to call it. The only ones I've come across are local drag shows that are laughable.

 

I'm going to be in Vegas the end of the month and was wondering if there were any shows like that out there that are worth seeing. I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have.

Some great shows but depends on your taste which ones appeal to you.

Cirque

O at the Bellagio

Mystere at Treasure Island

Ka at MGM Grand

Zumanity at NYNY - adult themed and skimpier attire, but less athletic acts too, and some that to me were just strange, but its been awhile since I saw it

Love at Mirage - Beatles music

 

Cirque Like

La Reve at the Wynn

 

Broadway

Phantom at Venetian

Jersey Boys at Palazzo

Mamma Mia at Mandalay Bay

 

Vegas

Folies Bergere

Jubilee at Ballys

 

Blue Man Group

 

The strip shows are definitely geared to the hetero audience

 

Headliners

Caesars is alternating Bette Midler and Cher

RE: Las Vegas

 

The one thing I wouldn't do is see three Cirque d' Soliel shows in a row like I did (all comp'd fortunately). The "WOW" factor withers quickly. For me KA was the most spectacular. Zumanity was the mostexciting but only because we had first row seats and were subject to being hauled up on stage to be humiliated.

I am in Vegas right now and saw Mamma Mia last night. I have seen the show in London, New York and Los Angeles and the Vegas production is every bit as good.

Three months ago I was in town and took a friend to see LeReve at the Wynn (me for the second time.) This is a wonderful, sexy show in water. Great.

My friend and I also went to see KA at the MGM. Enjoyed it as well.

On previous trips have seen Zumanity at New York New York. Agree with previous poster, very sexy, not as athletic but the two guys who fight in the cage (a la UFC) and then progress into a dance ending in a kiss is pretty hot.

I am seeing LOVE tonight at the Mirage. It's the Cirque show using all BEATLES music.

Looking forward to it.

 

Many of my tickets were purchased through Goldstar at a substantial discount. Check them out; Goldstar.com

you may need to register truncate the link after .com

and register, as I remember its free

they have a couple of dates for Sept listed right now. However on the riviera website they also show some shows as sold out so it will probably depend on your dates. You can check it out at the riviera hotel website if you haven't already and then see if Goldstar has tickets for any of the days you're in town. also seem to remember deals at hotel desks in town, but to book ahead Goldstar is probably best

I didn't think it was so boring. But I found myself wondering why someone would see Mama Mia three times, and then I realized that I have seen Spring Awakening three times, so, it's all a matter of taste. I hope that jackhammer will at least agree with me that the movie version sucked big time.

Thanks Ted. I came across the Goldstar tickets earlier today, but notice that the discount tickets (which are an excellent price) are on their more "general admission" tickets. They also have VIP seating which aren't discounted. None of the prices are all that bad, so is it worth paying the higher price for the VIP seating?

 

I appreciate your thoughts!

I've heard the same positive things from a friend who just returned from Vegas. Wish I was there.

Discounted tickets for "La Cage" are also available at the half-price ticket booths on the Strip. That's where I got mine.

My partner and I just returned from Las Vegas. As other posters have commented, the Bette Midler show is excellent. Just a damn good show ... entertaining and funny. The Caesar's Palace theater gives a decent intimate feeling to the concert. I've heard several people comment they felt like Bette was singing to them.

 

We also saw La Cage. Decent show. Some great impersonations, some good humor. The headliner begins the show doing his "famous" Joan Rivers act and then appears throughout the show as an emcee dressed in several Bob Mackie gowns. She does a great job as the emcee and looks great in the various gowns, but I just don't see any similarity in the Joan Rivers impersonation. The opening bit was my least favorite part of the show.

 

I was also somewhat disappointed in the Riviera Theater where La Cage was held. What was probably once a fun theater is now filled with rows of uncomfortable chairs. The theater was only 1/3 filled for our performance. I would have preferred the room filled with table seating. Drinks are available outside the theater and there is no drink service in the theater itself.

Somewhat related to this topic, I'm curious whether anyone has caught the dancers at Krave and whether they operate like at other places where audience members can tip dancers with cash....?
