Jabbawockeez

Description
Note: This review was from when saw the Jabbawockeez at Monte Carlo but I’m guessing they are just as good at Luxor.

Let me get this out of the way right away.  You should see the Jabbawockeez.   This comparison isn’t quite fair, but the closet thing I can compare the show to is the Blue Man Group but with dance instead of percussion.  Most of you won’t even associate the Blue Man Group with percussion; if that is the case then you will like the Jabbawockeez just as much.  If you happen to not like dancing, don’t let that stop you from enjoying this phenomenal show.  There is comedy, emotion, story, and of course dancing.

In case you have not heard of the Jabbawockeez, they are a dance troop that one the first season of America’s Next Best Dance Crew.  If you haven’t heard of that show you may have seen them in the Gatorade commercial with Kevin Garnett dressed as a knight.  They are easily recognizable wearing white masks and white gloves.

Make sure you show up at least 15 minutes early because the show’s star comes out and starts the audience interaction portion of the night.  For those of you who fear audience participation do not worry because this is the good kind.  The Jabbawockee calls up person by person and has them imitate his dance moves.  It is amazing how well he can communicate without words; I would love to play charades with this guy because I am sure he is undefeated.  There is a ton of comedy for this first fifteen minutes and it is done so well you do not want to miss it.

Finally the show starts with the leader, dressed as a janitor, takes you on a journey of the visuals of music.  There is a little bit of communication through  videos and a narrator but for the most part actions speak a lot louder than words and the “no flash photography” message is delivered as uniquely as most Cirque shows.

The dancing is phenomenal and without ruining it I will let you know that they do some fan favorites, but they also throw in lot of stuff even the most dedicated fans may not have seen.  The show never gets dull and they move scene to scene smoothly without any set-change distractions you see at lower quality shows.

Considering everything, Jabbawockeez is one of my favorite Vegas shows.  There is a good combination of comedy, wit, and dancing and it never gets dull.  Tickets are also on the lower end of Vegas production shows so that being said, go see them!
