CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- "Cirque Dreams Holidaze" wants to take your memories of the holiday season and crank up the volume to 11. Neil Goldberg, the creator of Cirque Dreams, said "Holidaze" is "really a celebration of everything you remember about the holiday season as a child."
It's just louder, brighter and wilder.
Goldberg promised "Holidaze," which comes to the Clay Center Sunday, is a spectacle.
He said, "We transform the performers into penguins who balance on slippery objects. There's the train that goes around the Christmas tree, but for us, they're doing it with roller skates. We have angels soaring in the air and doing amazing acrobatics and rag doll contortionists bending and twisting inside of gift boxes, getting ready for the holiday season.
"I describe the show as Radio City meets the circus on Broadway."
"Holidaze" isn't the first Cirque Dreams show to come to town as part of the Broadway in Charleston series. "Jungle Fantasy" came to the Clay Center in 2007. This is bigger and better, though, Goldberg said.
"Jungle Fantasy," he said, had 24 performers on stage. With "Holidaze," there are 32, and the whole production is just more layered, more intricate. There's more music, more costume changes and just a lot more going on at any given moment.
