for all the naysayers, first I am a huge fan of the supernatural tv show and to see the tie in google "supernatural criss angel" and you will see what I mean.
given "that" factor of him, to all of those men who wrote reviews and older folks who are vegas show afficianados, I will be blunt. Criss Angel is hot - I saw the show with my 14 year old daughter and we both were sucked in by the "hot factor" of him. I dont know what it is, but he is mesmerizing.
that said, I will tell you the review from my daughters perspective and mine.
for my 14 year old. She thought it was amazing. She loved the magic, loved the sets, costumes, the rabbits (recurring theme), the cirque clowns and the lobby decorations. She was truly enthralled by it. Even though she figured out many of the illusions. This was definately a highlight of our family week in vegas for her. That and seeing the crowds come out after the lady gaga concert!
for me, it was a good magic show but I will agree with some of the comments about the PR, the fact he is a street vs a stage magician, pushing his HSN premier when we were there. I too having seen other cirque shows would like to have seen more costuming. I am sure that Angel wanted the attention on himself vs the performers. I mean on the show its all about him. And its his venue.
In closing a lot of girls/women will like it. Men/husbands/boyfriends just go along with our love of a great looking hot guy with great abs who does magic and has a funny personality. If that side of it wont appeal to you, dont go.
We got tickets via the summer of cirque promo and paid around $125 including the surcharge for 2 tickets and were center in front of section 200. I would not pay more than that for the show.
giving an average as have seen "O" and say Siegfried and Roy years ago and on a scale of those were fabulous, this was average. But still had a great evening with my teen daughter (along with lots of other moms and daughters!)
