Magical Christmas ‘Cirque’ Show In Chicago Directed By 2 Rockford Brothers
The Wilson brothers, Kevin and Marcel, cut their theater teeth in Rockford 30 years ago and now are in charge of a magical Christmas-themed "Cirque de Soleil" show in Chicago.
The Cirque Dreams Holidaze show has been touring the country and will make a stop in Chicago right before Christmas at the Auditorium Theater December 22-24.
The show is in good hands with the Wilson Brothers. The Rockford natives have worked with artists Madonna, Beyonce, Toni Braxton, Tom Cruise and Wayne Brady. They've toured the world with performers including Janey Jackson, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Cher.
It's safe to say that the show is in good hands with Kevin and Marcel Wilson. Just take a look at some of the photos from previous shows.
You're gonna get multiple people flying around on ropes. That's always cool.
Occasionally they will apparently pass small rubber balls to each other. Neat.
This looks like the classic halftime act Quick Change.
I can personally tell you that if this show is half as good as a Quick Change halftime show run, don't walk to get tickets. Quick Change is an incredible show. The only halftime performance I'd rather see is the Red Panda.
I've been blessed enough to witness both of these shows live.
Back to the Cirque
You'll get some dancing and singing numbers, most likely with a Christmas theme
More people flying around on stage, but this time in a Santa hat. The kids will love it.
Plus some good old fashioned clown work.
If you want to take the whole family to this all-ages-appropriate show you can get tickets here.
