The Deal

Cirque Dreams Holidaze

What happens the night before Christmas when everyone is asleep? Are all homes silent without the stirring of creatures, just as described in “The Night Before Christmas?” What if the ornaments dangling from the Christmas tree came to life? Cirque Dreams answers these questions in its wildly imaginative production, Holidaze. As a cast of strongmen and acrobats dressed as ornaments spin, tumble, and creatively dismount a monstrous, lighted spruce, a live band boogies through a set of Christmas classics and original holiday tunes penned by Jill Winters and David Scott. The acrobats incorporate a large clock and other elements of the enchanting set into their stupefying stunts in a performance the New York Daily News describes as emanating “charm, sparkle, and talent by the sleighload.”

The Riverside Theater

As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
