Fodor's Expert Review Zumanity
Early 2015 brought what Cirque du Soleil calls a "refresh" of its one Las Vegas title that deliberately shuns the family market to indulge in an erotic, near-naked exploration of sexuality. The end product still fuses Cirque acrobatics with European cabaret and English music-hall tradition. Zumanity has evened out over the years with a stronger balance of comedy, omnisexual titillation, and the familiar Cirque acrobatics to literalize metaphors for love and sex: taking flight, soaring, and so on. Softer curves replaced the original edge, and Zumanity doesn't try so hard to shock anymore, but it's still (somewhat proudly) not meant for everyone.
