Weekend escapes for those suffering from early-onset holiday madness

Synetic Theater teamed up with buzzy “Astro Boy” director Natsu Onoda Power for "A Trip to the Moon," which promises projections, live animation and, no, no holiday music at all. (Koko Lanham)
For those suffering from a bad case of the holly jollies, the coming weekend offers a dozen pastimes that have nothing to do with lights, holly or Hanukkah.

For three days, speak not of tree lightings or the line to get into “Ice!” Instead, check out DJs as they take over the ice at the National Gallery; journey with Synetic Theater on “A Trip to the Moon”; and lay eyes on that glittering aquamarine beast Dom Pedro when it’s unveiled for the public on Thursday.
