Best show of the holiday season by far. Saw it last year and now I'm making it a tradition. I brought four friends with me who hadn't seen it and two of them are going again this week with their friends. It's a show you don't want to miss!

First act reveals the unusual twist to the Nutcracker story. Wonderful energy from the actors, great sets. The second act is a blockbuster - LOTS of exciting action, wonderful puppetry, magnetic performances..

I loved this production. Another great one from the Chopin Theatre. It does get a little scary at times (just a warning to young children), but it was festive and fun and well acted! I would recommend this to anyway looking for some holiday cheer.

I took my 4 year old grandson and his mother. He loved the show has been talking about the cookies and the rats ever since. He keeps saying he wants to go to another play. This is defiantly a play to take the whole family to, as long as the kids...continued

It was an absolutely fantastic play: Great actors, funny, tragic and very christmas-ish. I have already recommended it to my friends and we are sure to be back next year. Enjoy!!!

It was great! The cast was extremely friendly, the theater was intimate, and the play was hilarious. No matter the age I believe you will be able to get into it and have fun...remember it is in the Christmas spirit!

My family and I thought the show was fantastic. Very interactive and fun. A little scary with the rats at the end but nothing my kids couldn't handle - it was actually very cool. We really enjoyed it.

Really enjoyable show, I hadn't seen The Nutcracker since I was a kid, mostly due to an aversion to ballet. Really well done, enjoyable for adults and kids (could be a little scary for some younger ones). Theater is older, but lot of character,...continued

This was an awesome theater and a wonderful play. I took my 9 year old daughter and she loved it. It is done in theater in the round, so all the seats are great, but sit in the front if you can! Could be a little scary for little ones. It has...continued

Was a fantastic show. Only drawback is that I didn't know it was about loss. My husband and I took our children and we spent 90 percent of the play fighting tears in our eyes. I wanted to love it and enjoy it but everything turned back into...continued
