"I Give the Show Two Months. Tops."
A group of us in town from Boston saw the Criss Angel show last night. I had a free ticket and I still felt ripped off. It is sad to watch Cirque, which I generally have enjoyed over the years, put their name on something so awful. There hasn't been a great Cirque show in Vegas since "O" and that was 10 years ago. The Criss Angel show sets a new low."
"I'm sure that Mr. Angel was concerned such demonstrations of real talent would up stage him."
"The show had either extremely eager, sycophantical fans, or, more likely, plants who were just hanging out in the bathroom striking up conversations about how great it was with anyone who would listen. I'm guessing plants since three friends went to the bathroom over a 20 minute period and ran into the same woman. It wreaks of desperation. If anyone tells you the show is good, ask them how much of a kick-back they're getting from MGM/Mirage.
I give the show 2 months. Tops."
"If you're a fan of magic and want to see a good show, check out "Penn and Teller" at the Rio or even Lance Burton or David Copperfield when he's in town. If you'd like to see something Cirque-like, go see "O" or "Mystere" or "Le Reve." If you have tickets to Criss Angel, call the box office immediately to see if you can cancel."
Will be interesting to see if Siss can "walk on water" now, being all the bridges he once crossed are all burned down. He already seen his best days up until 2005, and that isn't saying much. It is all downhill from here. So long Siss.
