CIRQUE DREAMS at Curran Theatre
Experience gingerbread men flipping mid-air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen intricately balancing, icemen sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets dancing and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment in Cirque Dreams: Holidaze. This visual marvel of a show features an original music score (and some seasonal favorites), more than 30 international artists in beautiful costumes and marvelous settings filled with colossal candy canes, gigantic gifts, and 30-foot-tall towering soldiers. This touring show, which "dazzled" at The Kennedy Center, according to The Washington Post, brings the magic of the holidays to life before your eyes with so much energy that the New York Daily News says it "could end our dependence on oil."
