Holiday shows in the suburbs this season are as plentiful as colorful ornaments dangling from a Christmas tree. Local audiences can celebrate with everyone from country superstars Martina McBride, Kenny Rogers and Wynonna Judd to pianist/composer John Tesh, brother-and-sister duo Donny and Marie Osmond and rocker Chris Isaak.
