Las Vegas at Large:
“Do you want to see one?” Arthur Nelson said with a raised eyebrow. We were sitting in an office inside the glorious Guardian Angel Cathedral, that peculiarly located church immediately north of Encore Las Vegas on the Strip.

Nevada Ballet Theatre and Cirque du Soleil partner up with great results
"A Choreographer's Showcase" is an unfairly boring title for the annual collaboration between Cirque du Soleil performers and Nevada Ballet Theatre dancers, staged last Sunday at the Mystere Theatre at Treasure Island.

Show at CityCenter's Aria is Cirque's seventh in Las Vegas
"Viva Elvis," which officially opened at CityCenter’s Aria Friday night after weeks of paid previews and adjustments, joins six other Strip-resident shows, and it’s likely to be lucky number seven for Cirque du Soleil.

REVIEW: Enveloping show that dragged Las Vegas productions forward has barely aged in 15 years
