Review: Love

The Beatles rocked my world even before I saw Love. Now they rock it even more! Of the 7 Cirque du Soleil shows on The Strip, everyone I've spoken to agrees Love is the best one.

It somehow brought The Beatles music to life more than ever. The round stage was custom built for this show, including surround sound speakers in every seat. The result is much more than the spectacle I expected from a Cirque show in Vegas. It has heart.

My favorite parts were the beginning, when about six brick chimneys are blown apart in a WWII sequence, and the end, where John Lennon's assassination was subtly hinted at. They never seemed to take the easy, literal or obvious way, which I thought made this show one of the best things I have ever seen on stage.

Even the entrance to the theatre is amazing.

Broadway has a lot to measure up to!
