A month ago, it debuted newly remodeled Gold Club accommodations in the Rush Tower. Accessed by key card only, the new digs now offer a more manly palette of dark brown, tan and crisp white. (See what they looked like before here.) Rooms also feature plasma screen televisions, too. A standard room is shown above while a suite and a bathroom can be seen below.

Their performers may defy gravity like super-heroes, but now Cirque du Soleil legitimately belongs alongside Spider-man and the Fantastic Four. Cirque has teamed with Marvel Comics to produce a comic book based on KÀ. During Cirque Week we were introduced to the production team of a proposed four-issue series. The story honors the exact plot of the MGM Grand show and, if you've heard that Cirque don't always make sense, you certainly can't say that about the hero's journey of KÀ.

If it's been a while since you've witnessed Mystere, three new acts are waiting for you.
Cirque du Soleil's unique fan-festival, Cirque Week, continues and we've been behind the scenes at Mystere to witness a special performance by the Chinese Pole team. These acrobats were plucked from Zed, a Cirque production that closed in Tokyo last year. So were the other pair of new additions: a trapeze act that was a hit in Japan and Ginger Ana Griep-Ruiz, a Tissu acrobat. You know, the ones who elegantly swirl around on those incredibly long fabric strips? This group have brought a new buzz to the production, just as they are gearing up for next year's 20th anniversary of life on the Strip.

Cirque Week is finally upon us, taking us where we've never been before and offering gifts we'd never think we'd received. And, we took an amazing backstage tour that is also open to you. Anytime.
For the last three years, Cirque du Soleil has organized a week of behind-the-scenes tours, talks with production creators and discounted show ticket packages. We're there to glean all the backstage secrets and, once again, they hold nothing back. If you want to build you own version of Cirque in your back garden, they'll tell you anything and everything you need to construct one. Every event is the model of clockwork efficiency, full of enthusiastic and committed participants. This is how a company should present itself to the world. And, to its most committed audience members. We're big fans.

“I want it to be the gold standard. The scariest, top of the line, most intense haunted house in the world.”
Film director Eli Roth is enthusing, tour-guiding and trying not to lean against the wet plaster of his under-construction, sixties-themed Baby Dolls Lounge. The third floor libation room sits on the balcony of the Harmon Corner complex, across the bridge from CityCenter and The Cosmopolitan.
Lounge go-go dancers will be caged, including zombie groovers available for live feedings. This scene will play out as your view includes the Prada and Tom Ford boutiques across the street at Crystals. For Roth, a lounge was a must-have for this horror mini-theme park. Usually, after you wind your way through this kind of scare experience, it's all over. But here, Roth explains, “you can congregate, meet and interact.”
