Quick Hit Review: Cirque Dreams Holidaze -- The Palace

Performance tonight at 7:30.
What: Cirque Dreams Holidaze, where holiday dreams meet fantasy and imagination. Giant ginergbread men, snowmen and candy canes provide a backdrop for aerial, contortionist, juggling and balancing acts performed by an international cast dressed in sparkly and flowing costumes.

When: A limited engagement at the Palace Theater, Waterbury, ending tonight. For information and tickets, call 203-346-2000, visit http://www.palacetheaterct.org/, or go in person to the box office. Groups of 20 or more qualify for discounted rates and should call the Group Sales hotline at 203-346-2002.

Where: The Palace Theater, 100 East Main St. in Waterbury

Who Will Enjoy this?: Kids, mostly, but a few of the acts are very skilled and will entertain the whole family.

Highlights:
  • An audience interactive bell-ringing song that is quite funny and tonight's segment will offer an added surprise for one audience member.
  • The song "Every Child," performed by the the Ice Queen, the Angel, the Dream Engineer and company at the top of Act Two.

  • Best part of the night for me was the expression of total disbelief on the face of my companion when Elvis, playing a Christmas-tree-shaped guitar joined the action.
Lowlights:
  • Some irritating, VERY LOUD, ear-blsitering, pounding, canned music that doesn't even stop during a lengthy intermission.

  • People talking non-stop throughout the performance.
