It’s no mystery why “Mystère” has been packing them in at Treasure Island for nearly two decades. Cirque du Soleil’s original Las Vegas production is at once surreal, breathtaking, hair-raising and hilarious, with characters clad in crazy and colorful costumes that could have been designed by Salvador Dali on acid. The cast makes the seemingly superhuman look like child’s play. Expect gravity-defying pole walking, a Herculean hand-and-body balancing act, breathtaking flips and spins by aerial silk performers, and incredible triple somersaults by trapeze artists. Adding to the fun is Brian Le Petit, a mischievous clown who runs amok through the audience.
