VEGAS SHOWS QUESTIONS

Would like to see an old time type Las Vegas show/revue since it will be my first time there. Also plan to see one of the Cirque du Soleil shows. I'm looking for comparisons between "Jubilee" and "Follies Bergere". Which is better? Also what about Seifried & Roy? It was once considered "the" show to see in Vegas, much like "O" and "Mystere" are now, but it seems to get so much unfavorable press on this sight. Has it changed or is it just considered outdated now?

Siegfried and Roy is on the way out...as in passe, bypassed by much more entertaining shows.
The Tropicana and Las Vegas Hilton used to be glitzy top of the line hotel-casinos.
Later Mirage and MGM came along and raised the bar.
These days MGM and Mirage are second tier places and Bellagio and Venetian have set the standard.

Siegfried and Roy are the equivalent of the Tropicana or Las Vegas Hilton these days. Past its prime.
Not without entertainment value, just no longer top end.

Vic: I like the way you explained about Seigfried and Roy. Very goo and to the point.

S+R and is one of the worst rip-offs in Vegas. As far as i'm concerned, it's "just another magic show", but with more live animals than most.

For a Las Vegas show/revue, i think the Tropicana is known to have one of the better ones (but i don't recall the name of it).

If you want old vegas, I would choose Folies Bergere. I *think* that's the one with the women and the feather headresses, if my memory serves me correctly.

Ixnay on Siegfried and Roy. It's outdated - very "80s Vegas".

I would see Mystere over O if I had the choice.

Have fun!

Took my mother to see Follies a few years ago as she wanted a show with show girls, etc. and I think it was what she expected in an "old time" Vegas show.

Follies Bergere is certainly the traditional type of vegas revue show. Feathered headdresses, topless showgirls. It's at the Flamingo which is sort of cheesy but you get a feel for what 50-60's vegas would have been like. While waiting for the show, try their slots, just ignore the 60 year cocktail waitresses in short, tight outfits <G> As for S&R - take a pass. Too much $$ and if you are any kind of animal lover at all you'd be horrified by the way they keep the white tigers on display.
