Cirque Dreams Holidaze is playing at the Citi Shubert Theatre in Boston through December 11! There are only six performances of Holidaze in Boston before they move on to their next destination and this is not a show you want to miss if you’re in town. I saw their first Boston performance last night and was completely blown away.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze is a cirque show, Broadway musical, holiday spectacular and family show all in one.
Broadway director Neil Goldberg re-imagines the holiday season with over 300 costumes, 20 acts and 30 performers from 12 countries showcasing an endless variety of imaginative, heart-pounding and gravity- defying feats you have to see to believe. There were gingerbread men flipping in the air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires along with snowmen, icemen and penguins, balancing, jumping and spinning in disbelief. The show celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with singers, choreography and exciting production numbers. Performers and costumed ornament characters twirl, bounce and soar thru the air to original music and seasonal favorites brought to life within a stage setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering trees & soldiers creating a larger than life wonderland of amazement.
For me, the visuals were just stunning. The costumes were fantastic and the props were even better. There was clearly a lot of thought put into the show and it shows. The performers are true athletes and we were thoroughly entertained for the whole two hour show (minus the 15 minute intermission of course). I have seen several cirque shows over the years and this one was my favorite by far. I am so thankful that I got to see Cirque Dreams Holidaze. If you have a chance to see Holidaze before it moves on, I highly suggest it. Since they came to town yesterday, one show is down, so you only have five more chances to see it in Boston.
Tickets for Cirque Dreams Holidaze are available at the Citi Performing Arts Center Box Office, Citicenter.org, or by calling (866) 348-9738.
