Reader Reviews: More Disappointment With Criss Angel


READER MAIL FROM PAUL

Mr. Elfman,

I had the pleasure of seeing "Believe" at Luxor this weekend, and I must say, your review of the show was lacking. Clearly, you didn't use enough R's in "terrrrrible." Of course, when faced with the unprecedented tragedy that was the show, you did the best you could.

Oh yes, we definitely had comps. I can only hope the entire place was comped. Although I think I would have paid to see it. How often do you get to see the show that 1) killed theater, 2) ended Cirque and 3) will be talked about for decades in terms of, "Oh yeah. THAT show."

Do you think we'll ever see the ad tag line reading, "Worst night in theater since April 1865!"?

Other reviews from our group were, "Like watching the Twin Towers fall, but without all the laughs," "Like the Titanic, Hindenburg and Pearl Harbor all rolled into one, but more tragic," and "The biggest trick of the night was watching his fan base disappear."

Oh, god, those poor dancers. I hope none of them left good gigs for this thing.

My friend guessed there's more psychotherapists working this show that massage therapists.

Just read your review and I wish I had read it before I went and saw it.  I saw it on January 3rd.  I was excited to see it, and to say I was disappointed, would just put it mildly.  Its my 4th show in Vegas and BY FAR the worste I have ever seen.  3 out of the 7 who went fell asleep. Just glad I got the military discount.
