    As far as second (or is that third?) careers go, Britney has made a helluva comeback. Although her core audience is made up of people who remember her initial rise to success, followed by the up-again-down-again pattern of failed relationships, emotional breakdowns and performance flubs, the former teen idol has settled in ever-forgiving Vegas to reinvent herself once more, this time as a full-on performance artist.

    An aquatic stage, amazing performers, glorious music and stunning direction: we must be talking about another Cirque du Soleil show, right? Nope. We’re talking about Steve Wynn’s answer to Cirque du Soleil. Le Rêve, at Wynn’s signature property, is a show that doesn’t do anything by half-measures. And even though it took Le Rêve a few years to come into its own as a production show, the wait was worthwhile.

    There’s a symbolic junction in Las Vegas where rock & roll, country & western and rhythm & blues intersect—and it currently resides in Harrah’s main showroom. Million Dollar Quartet tells the story of a musical meeting in the literal sense: On December 4, 1956, four masters of these genres— Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins—ended up in a recording studio for a one-off session that changed the course of modern music.

    Magic is a sham, but that doesn’t make watching it any less entertaining. That’s the big takeaway from a Penn & Teller performance. These longtime partners—the diminutive, mute Teller and large, boisterous Penn—revel in their seamless ability to amuse and amaze audiences with tricks that range from sleight-of-hand to seemingly foolhardy acts.

    The Broadway blockbuster charts the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, with Valli’s sky-high falsetto helping to spawn more than a dozen ’60s hits including “Sherry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Walk Like a Man.” The narrative of the group’s trajectory is familiar, but compelling: backstabbing, personal conflicts, bad choices and criminal elements, all woven together with a timeless and instantly recognizable musical score (try to not hum as you leave the theater).

    There are currently eight Cirque du Soleil shows to choose from in Vegas, but we’d slap down our bucks for The Beatles LOVE, because, well: the Beatles. Combining the original pop-rock quartet with Cirque’s artistic imagery was a masterstroke of brilliance on the part of the famed production company, but the show doesn’t just string together a roster of the Fab Four’s greatest hits.

    The second entrant, in 1998, into Cirque’s Las Vegas–dominant empire, O has endured for a couple reasons. First, its debut marked the advent of a new kind of show for Las Vegas—a large production built around its own specially designed aquatic stage. As anyone who has ever sat and stared transfixed at an ocean, lake, or even a swift-moving river can attest, the power of water is transformative.

    The BMG trio—there are three blue men because three is the smallest group you can have in which one person can be an outsider—explores universal human concerns like rejection, loneliness and alienation, set to a funky, percussion-heavy soundtrack. Since Blue Man opened on the Strip in 1999, the hit show has evolved to include references to communication devices (cell phones, social media) that ironically underscore the alienation theme.

    While it has some elements as other Las Vegas productions, such as burlesque acrobatics, the 18-and-over show is set apart by its intimate quality. Hosted by emcee-provocateur the Gazillionaire—a greasy-haired, mustachioed carnival barker plucked straight out of the 1970s—and his assistant Joy Jenkins, he plies audiences with dirty jokes and double entendres, while cabaret and circus-style acts play out on a nine-foot-diameter round stage just a few feet from the audience.
