The House Theatre of Chicago's The Nutcracker is a fantastical deconstruction of E.T.A. Hoffmann's time-honored holiday story, with lots of humor and heart -- and no ballet. This fresh theatrical interpretation centers on young Clara's journey to save Christmas. With the help of a magical nutcracker given to her by her beloved Uncle Drosselmeyer, she'll bravely fight the Rat King to save her family. This modern holiday production weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, original song and spellbinding imagery to tell a heartwarming story of love, loss and hope. Learn More

I'm a big fan of the House Theatre and really enjoyed this production. The choreography was amazing. You really got a sense of an avalanche, or of the main character rappelling through the mountainside - the use of movement/choreography on a small budget has always been a strong suit of the House Theatre in my book. And the expressions on the faces of the actors were very engaging. Not that there weren't rough spots, but I'd go see it again. It was a magical play.
