Tuesday Pop Review- Love by Cirque du Soleil

Welcome back to the blog!  Tuesdays is normally when I review a book, movie or restaurant. 

Today is a little bit special.  As mentioned in other posts, I recently went to Las Vegas for a brief vacation.  During the trip, I went with some friends to “Love” — a Cirque du Soleil production based on music by The Beatles.  Love is featured at The Mirage, a prominent hotel on the famous Las Vegas Strip. 

I could not imagine any Beatles fan not supremely enjoying Love.  Though my fun in Las Vegas usually centers around the amazing restaurants and some time at the tables, I venture to say this show was the highlight of this trip. 

Cirque does an excellent job of crafting interpretive dance and acrobatics around your favorite Beatles classics.  When the crowd is not cheering the music, it is “oooohhhhh”‘ing and “aaaahhhhhh”‘ing amazing feats involving half-pipes, trampolines and other visual effects.  The intimate Love Theatre also guarantees that there is not a bad seat in the house. 

While no “live” music is played, the music includes over 20 classic Beatles tunes digitally remastered by former Beatles producer George Martin, as well as several instances when multiple songs are subtlely spliced together.  Love even includes two of George Harrison’s better songs, “Here Comes the Sun” and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” in one of the more poignant parts of the show.

I do not want to give too much away, but promise that the closing set of songs makes for an incredible finale.  I highly recommend you make Love a part of your next trip to Las Vegas!

See you tomorrow for a Federal Law Update.
