This Christmas season, Cirque Dreams: Holidaze is arriving at the Adler Theatre on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.
“This may sound like a very strange night, and it is. But "Cirque Dreams Holidaze" has the distinct advantage of being like nothing else in town. You truly have no idea what is coming next, which is more than you can say at most repeating holiday shows,” The Chicago Tribune shares.
This 2023 spectacle is expected to impress audiences in over 70 U.S. locations over the course of seven weeks. As the top family holiday event in the country, Cirque Dreams Holidaze captures the spirit of the season with a special Broadway-style performance and modern circus acts.
The Cirque Dreams: Holidaze edition is a show that is centered loosely around the theme of The Nutcracker. Critics have praised the meticulously created make-up and costumes that accurately capture each performer's acrobatic act. Other highlights include the "cyr wheel" act, where an acrobat defies gravity within a spinning hula hoop, and the acro skipping act, which features impressive jump roping reindeer.
A range of well-known performers from around the world appear in the show, including a variety of aerial circus acts, skippers, dexterous jugglers, and breathtaking acrobatics, among other performances. Interestingly, the original music score for Cirque Dream features modern takes on holiday classics like "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," "The Nutcracker," and "Carol of the Bells."
Broadway World explains that “This 98-minute performance with one intermission comes at a perfect time, considering the troubled world around us. The performance is so colorful, the stages so magnificent that even the older people in the audience could not help but revert to their wonderfully simplistic days as a child and the dreams we all had through Christmas stories like the Nutcracker.”
