Dirk Arthur
Dirk Arthur's, "Wild Illusions," is playing inside the Starlite showroom at the Riviera Hotel & Casino. Dirk Arthur is an admired magician that has performed fairly consistently in Las Vegas for more than two decades. His show has never been one of the top magic shows in the city, but he has always been a good contender. He has a very family friendly production that has always been accessible and fun for everyone. This production includes a large variety of tricks, a couple of dancers, good music, and dramatic opportunities to witness a multitude of exotic cats. This is the only magic show left in Las Vegas that features these big cats. There is a little bit of something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

Zarkana
"Zarkana," by Cirque du Soleil, is playing in the showroom at the Aria Resort and Casino. It was brought in from Radio City Music Hall to replace the floundering "Viva Elvis." To quote from the PR on the show, "[It] is a visually stunning modern acrobatic spectacular set in a world where physical ability meets with the extraordinary. Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration." It is a good description of the show...however, in a town that is replete with Cirque shows, it just doesn't stand out.

IMAGINARIUM
'IMAGINARIUM' is Las Vegas' newest illusion spectacular starring David Goldrake playing inside the showroom at the Tropicana Las Vegas. This show combines classic magic with circus performers, and is supported by a large LED wall to create all of the settings. Magic is a tough gig. A magic show in Las Vegas is a far tougher gig. We have seen all of the best magicians in the world, and to bring something unique to this town is very difficult. And while Goldrake performs all of his illusions adeptly, there is very little that is truly exceptional to his show. Having said that, 'IMAGINARIUM' does fill the absence of a good basic magic show in Las Vegas.
