There's something about most holiday performances that's just, what? Oftentimes the traditional shows are merry and festive enough to be sure, but they're also somewhat predictable. Of course, there's some comfort in knowing how these stories turn out and that good triumphs over all, at least in storyland, but there's also the teensiest bit of boredom in that security, too. To overcome the holiday yawns, head to the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard, 314-534-1111 or for Cirque Dreams Holidaze. Full of the unexpected, Cirque Dreams features living, breathing ornaments, acrobatic gingerbread men and snowmen, new songs along with old favorites and a 24-foot-tall Christmas tree — that's a lot of holiday shoved into one festive, fantastical, feat-filled show! To flip your holiday performance schedule on its head, plan on celebrating Cirque at the Fox anytime from Tuesday, December 21, to Wednesday, December 29 (except Saturday, December 25). Showtimes vary, and tickets range from $25 to $69.
Dec. 21-24; Dec. 26-29, 2010
