Why You Should See Zumanity Las Vegas
Known as Cirque du Soleil's only adult show, this production is NOT a sex show. The show interprets the many features of sensuality, and is a variety of acts that are woven quite tastefully to produce something quite interesting. Often, people fear the show will be extremely risqué, but such is not the case. The show is refined, not raunchy - all nudity is tasteful. In fact, the costumes are the best part: there are brilliant variations of thongs and codpieces, each of which has been created keeping the show's message in mind.
Since there is no predefined plot, audiences often fret about what to expect. This production presents an erotic spectacle, somewhat like a cabaret, with many talented performers. Reviews prove that audiences enjoy the show quite a bit; in fact, it is even educational (to some extent). You will get to learn some practical life lessons- such as loosening up to discussion about sex, and if you’re lucky, the other lessons too, like how to stash booze in your bra, and get away with it! Amidst the craziness that involves chains, whips, leather, silk and more, you are guaranteed a night of fun and excitement. The aerial artists, lithe dancers, and mind-blowing contortionists will leave you wide-eyed, and you are sure to fall in love with the sassiest host of all time!

Apart from the many Cirque-ular staples, this production has many variations on striptease. Some of the enjoyable acts include two women slipping around each other in a goblet that is completely translucent, a woman dressed in a schoolgirl outfit that’s been shrunk after washing it, and a dancer shimmying Hula Hoops around her torso with much precision. Aerialists also bring to the table something different each time, mostly intertwining their acts with bondage.
The show revolves around gymnastics, dancing, music, and partial nudity, and also involves audience participation.
““Zumanity” makes a point of offering multiple combinations of genders and colors. A man-on-man duet in black and white is played out in a cage (or playpen), a battle/ballet which, among other things, makes explicit the subtext of mixed martial arts. It’s all about voyeurism: While we’re watching the performers, they in turn are watching each other — and us — from balconies and sinuously spiral staircases. It’s all very “Eyes Wide Shut,” but in a good way.”

“The idea of a sexually based Cirque show grabbed the public’s imagination, and there was intense buzz as the $16 million show began full-price previews in mid-August in its newly renovated $50 million theater in the New York-New York Hotel-Casino.”
