This show is a great way to spend some time in the casinos after dinner. Starts at 10, and is fun to watch. Has some clowning type acts, some singing and of course some sophisticated strip-tease and lingerie. The Japanese lady is sensational with her erotic show and the Ukrainian contortion couple also. Maybe a tad pricey for an hour,... More

This felt basically like an ok circus/dance act with less clothing. The highlights for me would include the singer who I thought was very good, the beatbox dude and the Japanese girl who gave a pretty good aerial performance on some ribbons. I got a 'standing' seat which isnt actually standing as you sit on a high chair and the... More

I have seen a lot of vegas style shows..this one is average...there were some extremely talented people dancing, singing, acrobatics etc...it just wasn't worth the price

Not sure what taboo wants to be - plenty of flesh and amazing acrobatics and sword throwing and fire tricks- not what we were expecting -a story line would be better - just expensive cabaret show.

First of all the singer is worth seeing alone, she can wail. Secondly the band is also just as good, including a guitar player who could knock out Sweet Child O Mine on a badminton racket and probably the coolest sac player on earth. Very strange mix of entertainment but worth going to see, not quite as taboo as a... More

Given the name, we were expecting something raunchier. But nothing presented could be counted as "taboo"!! The show with the same name on Nat Geo TV channel gives more insights into social taboos than this show. Honestly, this was nothing more than a circus performance - blindfolded knife-throwing, silk aerial act, balancing on each other ... only difference being that... More

When you walk in to see Taboo, the girls are waiting there to receive the audience for the day and they hand-feed you some kind of shot in a spoon that comes in a kind of jelly capsule. I'm not sure if it is alcoholic or not, but it's a nice touch that makes you feel you are walking in... More

It was pretty evident that the performers were working hard and putting up a brave face yet the audience was convinced that they deserved much better for what they had paid for. It would be even more suicidal to pay for the more expensive and premium seats. Especially, if you have seen any of such similar 18+ shows in Las... More

We went for it since trip advisor reviews were good. I guess reviews are rigged like the way people sitting in the audience. We found that this performance can be avoided as it is quite expensive and fails to create any effect on audience. Please avoid if you can and instead spend your money in House of dancing waters.
