JUBILEE! ****** Bally’s Hotel and Casino Las Vegas http://www.ballyslasvegas.com/shows/jubilee.html#.Ut4v1cvTm00 If there’s only one show you were allowed to see while visiting Sin City and you wanted it to represent everything the old Vegas has ever stood for, Jubilee! would definitely be your bet. Retro and nostalgic, it’s been running since the early 80’s and currently demonstrates no sign of losing any of its luster! The Bally’s resident theater is a rather small, intimate venue, quite suitably decorated in red velvet with some gold adornments. We managed to obtain a good deal on tickets in the table-seating area (please try the Best of Vegas website, they often tend to have competitive prices). That’s really where you want to be to experience everything first-hand, although the very front row might even be a little bit too close for some. The booths directly behind the tables are pretty great, too! The chairs actually rotate, so that you can view the performance from every possible angle. This is a topless show, so if you are more on the conservative side and avert your eyes at the mere sight of human flesh, then you will probably find yourself frequently admiring the ceiling, as there are a lot of G-string wearing buttocks and bare bosoms on display. Not all the girls are exposed, but for the most part their attire remains rather frivolous. Over 80 dancers participate in this production (female and male) and whatever your personal beauty ideal might be, one point of overwhelming agreement will inevitably emerge: all these young people have an absolutely top figure! What I also considered interesting was the fact that out of all the damsels there I did not notice even one rocking any implants. If any of them had a boob-job done, it was indeed very solid and discreet work. In accordance with the long established showgirl tradition, all the participants performed with extremely scary grins frozen on their faces. I know this belongs to the most beloved features of this kind of entertainment, but I would strongly suggest to finally forego this requirement! It looks superficial and disturbing, with the smile never quite reaching the eyes. Like Chucky on the prowl. Please, just let the poor ladies adopt a more natural facial expression, I’m sure they hate looking like a bunch of maniacs fresh on Prozac, too! Jubilee! can be described as a revue show, featuring different numbers not thematically connected to one another in any way. The one common feature they all do possess are the fabulous costumes (some designed by Bob Mackie), including spectacular (and very heavy-looking) traditional Vegas headpieces. Quite a few of these contraptions seem to be made out of feathers so numerous, you have to fear for the safety of the bird population in the country hired to produce them. The glittering garb ranges from tiny panties to dreamy, floaty dresses, but all of it is simply top-notch and a true feast for the eyes. Obviously it also serves as a wonderful frame to better highlight the vivacious dancing and live singing! Generally the show remains a breath-taking spectacle all throughout its duration. Starting with the first number, during which the dancers descend from every imaginable corner of and around the stage until the striking finale, your attention never has a chance to wander astray. In fact there is usually so much happening on stage that you don’t quite know where to look, no matter how agile you are and how very energetically you keep turning your neck around its axis you will always end up missing something. Besides the obvious singing/dancing acts we were able to enjoy several specialty performances involving acrobatics (true artistry accompanied by eerie, ethereal music and mythological motifs), as well as some very unique sort of juggling (original and impressive, never seen anything like it before). One cannot forget the silks: these appear to be ever-present in each single show. However, in this version it was still a pleasure to watch the immaculate execution of the number, the motions fluid and full of grace. Apropos silks: don’t you just hate the fact that every time the performers are up there you end up praying profusely that they will not fall down and break their necks? That happens to me a lot and afterwards I usually emerge out of this whole business rather resentful.  Having once again wasted a lot of perfectly good prayers (because the artists are, of course, fine), when I could have invested those in invoking divine intervention in trying to shed a few pounds. Other than that be prepared for some astonishing special effects (temples collapsing, fire, steam and water causing all kinds of mayhem), as well as a sensual journey full of vibrant colors and unforgettable impressions. I would consider the Samson and Delilah or Titanic numbers especially riveting. And even though the show can be perceived as predominantly sexy, it also contains some very elegant, classy ball-room dancing and singing pieces. If you’re looking for something edgy or modern this would probably not be your first choice. It does not really try to be those things, either. What it attempts is to recreate the glamorous atmosphere of a bygone time and the splendor of a city before it became just one of many gambling hot-spots. I found Jubilee! to be a visually fascinating extravaganza and would most definitely recommend it. And let’s be honest here: where else will you get to see a true, genuine showgirl, as good as butt naked and with a huge deseased ostrich on her head???
