Latest example? Cirque du Soleil (which is more and more like pre-Castro Cuba?)
Cirque is just 20 years old, but it now has three continuous shows in Las Vegas. Last year, 7 million people saw a Cirque show.

How fast things move from the margin! Twenty years ago, Cirque was kook central. Ten years ago, it was a minority taste. Now it’s part of the charmed circle of bourgeois taste, and standard Vegas fare. If we are moving towards Cuba before the revolution, we are traveling at speed.

What will the next big thing be?
