A Last Dose of Holiday Cheer
Look, just because it's got "Cirque" in the title doesn't mean it's got anything to do with those other guys. "Cirque" ain't a proper noun, and in this case it (probably) references "Cirque Europeen" -- the grand tradition of costume-heavy, makeup-crazy, animal-less circuses that played across Europe for centuries. So it doesn't necessarily have top-dollar production values, and it doesn't necessarily wow you with a gazillion dollars of technological pizzazz. What it does have is "gingerbread men flipping mid-air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen powerfully sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets dancing and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment." The kids'll love it. Admission's $29 to $81. Cirque Dreams Holidaze runs Tuesday through January 1 at the Broward Center of Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale).
