Vegas show ideas?

We don't usually go to Vegas but will be there for a couple days to and from Death Valley in early March. Thinking we should catch a show while there and these bubble up on review sites:

Jersey Boys
Vegas The Show
Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil

We have seen several Cirque du Soleil shows including Zumanity last time we were there 6 years ago. While we generally love them, the last one we saw was the touring show Quidam, which was very disappointing and painfully too loud.

Understand this is largely subjective, but any thoughts on these or other shows we should consider?

Thanks!

La Reve at Wynn. Gorgeous theater and production. It isn't technically a CDC show, but has the same elements. It has water elements, aerials, amazing costumes and set design.

LOVE at The Mirage is also a favorite. We have seen it twice. Even if you aren't a huge Beatles fan, it still is a feel good show.

Thanks jetset, those both look like great options. I'll show them to my wife. We are Beatles fans for sure, though I listened to the Stones more back then.

(Somehow I deciphered what CDC actually meant before I saw your second post, it made sense even with the "C". Go figure.)

Appreciate the info.

My husband and I saw Jersey Boys in Las Vegas last month and we both thought it was great. My husband really enjoyed it which is funny because he didn't really seem like he wanted to see it in the first place, but went because he didn't want to see another Cirque show.

For next month's trip, we are seeing Celine in concert and Love. Really enjoyed Jersey Boys, and our favorite was "OH" Cirque show.

Also saw Ka and fell asleep

After some consideration we decided to do a non-Cirque show this time and most likely it will be Jersey Boys, Vegas The Show, or both if we decide to do two.

Slightly leaning towards Vegas as first choice since it sounds like a nice variety of acts.

Thanks for the replies.

Thanks MicehlleY. Just watched a Fator YouTube video (have not seen him before...), he is amazing!

We are doing "Vegas The Show" as our first choice but will be there for three nights so can add another if we're in the mood. Thanks again.

Thanks westie, good to know.

Do you know if you can choose your specific seats at Tix4Tonight (assuming you are not getting General Admission seating), or do they assign you seats from the available pool?

In any case, thanks for the info.

We really enjoyed Million Dollar Quartet in a small theatre at Harrahs. The story of the meeting at Sun studios of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash. The music was amazing, especially Jerry Lee. If you like that era of course.

Really enjoyed Jersey Boys. We've seen several Cirque shows including "O" and we've come to the conclusion if you 've seen one you've seen them all.
