DENVER (CBS4) – This year the new “Cirque Dreams – Holidaze” show which plays at the Buell Theatre gives the holidays an acrobatic twist.
“Somehow you don’t necessarily think of the holidays as the setting for an acrobatic extravaganza, and yet somehow ‘Cirque Dreams – Holidaze’ fits beautifully,” said CBS4 Critic at Large Greg Moody.
To “Cirque Dreams” creator Neil Goldberg the idea was to make the show so much more than anyone would expect it to be.
“I had the vision of celebrating the holiday season by paying tribute to it with this amazing performance artistry. And then as a Broadway guy, I added all these different layers of theatrics so that it’s not just a Cirque show, it’s a holiday stage spectacle. That was really the original vision,” said Goldberg.
“With 30 performers from 12 countries doing 20 acts in 300 costumes with elaborate sets and original, as well as traditional, music support ‘Cirque Dreamz – Holidaze’ becomes that truly different part of the Mile High Holidays,” said Moody.
“I don’t think there’s another show or Cirque show in the world that in two hours is going to present as many acts as we do,” said Goldberg.
The show runs at the Buell in the Denver Center complex from Dec. 10 through Dec. 22. Click here to buy tickets.
