Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil | Las Vegas, Nevada, United States | So today I arrived to Las Vegas, and right after checking in at my hotel, invited by Cirque du Soleil and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, I got myself to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino right on time to enjoy my first show while in town. Michael Jackson ONE, is one of the six current productions by Cirque de Soleil, being performed along The Strip. Developed between Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson. ONE is heartfelt tribute to the work, innovative spirit, and legacy of Michael Jackson – the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.
The producers claim to be a reinterpretation of the King of Pop’s influence, infused with theatrics and acrobatics for which Cirque du Soleil is known. During and hour and a half, you will go through the entire repertoire of Michael Jackson’s classics. So if you are a fan, you will love it and have a blast. Now if you are like me, who likes the artist enough, but more the show he used to deliver on stage, perhaps ONE fell a bit short on acrobatics, dance and a few rather dull moments with excess of paraphernalia, basic visuals and flying acrobats. My favorite moments of the show were Beat it, Billie Jean and Man in the Mirror when the spirit of Michael is brought to the stage to dance with the the cast. And of course, the moment everyone was waiting for in the crowd, Thriller. Worst moments, were to me, every single time the Guitarist dress in yellow showed on stage, looking as fake as the wind blowing her wig.
My verdict is… if you are a fan and/or come to listen to Michael Jackson and have a great time, then DO NOT MISS IT. If you are looking to see the best exponent of Cirque du Soleil acrobats, dance and performance, then keep your options open to the other five Cirque productions along The Strip.
