I am no longer a fan of Cirque and they have gone the way of Starbucks(there is one on every corner). There are so many shows now and when I was last in NYC they had three going at the same time in the city. It used to be special and now it seems like a money grab. For the shows that I have been to the tickets start at $90 so watering down the talent pool doesn't return good value.
I've been to several along the Vegas strip. They never disappoint. The traveling shows are geared more for families, from what I know, but I'm not completely sure. A little investigation should be able to help you.
