All Stars Need Is "LOVE," Cirque-Style

There's no dearth of shows for celebs (or civilians) to take in while they're in Las Vegas, but Cirque du Soleil's critically-acclaimed re-imagining of the Beatles' greatest hits -- "LOVE" -- attracted an unusual trove of stars over the long weekend to The Mirage.

On Saturday night, local boys Spencer Smith and Ryan Ross of alt-rockers Panic! at the Disco celebrated their big win last week at the MTV VMAs by taking in the show celebrating the original Fab Four, while "Ghost Whisperer" star Jennifer Love Hewitt and "Crossing Jordan's" Steve Valentine were also in attendance. Meanwhile, Sunday night, talkmeister Larry King brought his family to see "LOVE" and went backstage afterwards to meet the cast, and "Superman Returns" director Bryan Singer caught the late show.

Last Thursday, Reese Witherspoon and pal Jenny Belushi (that's Jim's wife) wanted to see the show so much that they caught it even though they had to arrive 40 minutes late. "LOVE" is the first time that legendary Beatles producer George Martin and Apple Corps has allowed any kind of musical-theater partnership.
