‘Stomp’ Dave Trump and Christmas movies


Activities in the holiday spirit continue this weekend, but you should give this spirit a wide berth with “Krampus”.

This show has been around for a while, with roots dating back to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the early 1980s. But its real appeal—the percussive thrill created by everyday objects like paint cans, Zippo lighters, and supermarket carts—hasn’t aged well. The current tour operates a limited holiday event just off Michigan Avenue at Water Tower Place.

Dec. 13-31, Broadway Playhouse, 175 E. Chestnut St.; tickets $40-$85 at 800-775-2000 and www.broadwayinchicago.com

Third time Since 2019 premiereA new version of Cirque du Soleil’s downtown holiday show returns to the Loop for peak December weeks. It’s based on Clement Clarke Moore’s classic poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” and centers around a jaded young girl who rediscovers the magic of the holidays with the help of some circus performers.

Through Dec. 28 at Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State St.; tickets $36-$111 www.cirquedusoleil.com

Now a popular annual “Illumination” event at the Morton Arboretum outdoor light display, again this year designed by Lightswitch’s John Featherstone. Drive along a kilometer of paved road as light effects showcase the beauty of the trees in winter. This season will feature 18 exhibits, including the new “Winter Glow” display featuring LED lawns that pay tribute to Midwestern plant species.

through January 6, 2024, at Morton Arboretum, 4100 Illinois Route 53, Lisle; More information at mortonarb.org

Okay, so think of the perfect holiday activity in Chicago…let’s say caroling at Cloudgate. Now consider the opposite. “Krampus: The Terror Before Christmas” is available this weekend only at the 13th Floor Haunted House, named after that anti-Christmas elf and all his evil little helpers.

December 8-18, 13th Floor Chicago, 5050 River Road, Schiller Park; tickets start at $29.99 www.13thfloorchicago.com
