The show is named after the main character, Crystal and the quest to explore here imagination.  “She soars through this surreal world at high speed to become what she was always destined to be: confident, free, empowered,” Cirque publicists note.

Perhaps this says it all, summing up the new show:

“Discovering one’s individuality and uniqueness requires venturing out on thin ice.”

Crystal is scheduled to run at the SAP Center in San Jose March 28-April 1, 2018.

Other stops on the tour include Montreal, Windsor, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Topeka among many others that can be found on the Cirque site.

Needless to say, this looks like a charming and entertaining way to spend quality time with the family this winter!
