Actress, dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen's fun, fresh spin on The Nutcracker returns to Royce Hall for the holidays. The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.

Great talent,wonderful selection of music. I did not care for the scat and was not crazy about the singer's voice. I do not think "Nature Boy" done with scat was a respectful remdition changing the spirt of the song.I loved all of the instumentals.
One of the great names in jazz for over fifty years, the Monterey Jazz Festival takes some of its best performers on tour. Singer Kurt Elling, violinist Regina Carter, guitarist Russell Malone and the Kenny Barron Trio (pianist Barron, bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and drummer Johnathan Blake) each bring distinctive artistry to the stage in their own sets and in the electrifying closing jam that generations of Monterey fans have come to cherish.
