Several weeks of previews are typical for Vegas shows. During the preview period, the show is nearing completion but is not 100% perfected. During this period, it is normal to stop the show and add or remove elements that may or may not be working due to audience participation & reaction. This can include scenes, choreography, demonstrations, music, etc.
