I'm disappointed that this was a Goldstar offering actually. I've never left a live performance in progress before. Out of respect for the fact that even one performer is giving of themselves, I will stick it out. However, I left Unbound at...continued

This was a wonderful production. It was updated and fun. It had traditional music/dancing, along with rock/rap and many styles of dance. I would highly recommend it.

As a Red Velvet member I got great seats. The production was a fun spin on the traditional Nutcracker Ballet. I was afraid that the "hip new twist" might render a storyline unrecognizable to my grandchildren but it was just right. The only...continued

Great holiday event. The children were delightful.
The dancers were experienced and enthusiastic. Great stage props. We enjoyed this high energy version of a traditional holiday event.

Very festive, beautiful choreography, a lot of dancers. Customs were just amazing!!! The only negative was the sound. The first half of the show the music was barely heard and the second was too loud. At the last minute of the performance the...continued

A good "updated" Nutcracker that is fun not only for family members of the cast but public at large with small children in tow. The absence of rats greatly appreciated by my 5 year old granddaughter while I really liked the purple sugarplums done...continued

This may have been the worst show I've ever paid money to see. To say that it was amateur is an understatement and I'm am shocked this was offered by Goldstar, which usually has lovely offers. There were two acts that were quite good(the rhythmic...continued

Goldstar presented this event as if it were a professional dance production , which it was not. This was basically a dance recital for a dance school, and not well arranged or choreographed. I f I was a friend, or relative of a performer, it...continued

It helps to know what you are getting yourself into. That would have helped me immensely. This show is not a professional show. That is totally fine but one must know this in advance. The theatre is beautiful.

Just amazing. Loved the mash-up, remixed music and dance. Loved all the different ages of performers.

Hope it comes again next year as I have friends that really want to see it.

This was billed as a hip interpretation of the nutcracker... it was, in fact, more like a traditional version of the Nutcracker as performed by your cousin.

This was by far the worst performance we have ever seen. Technically the dancers were amateur level, at best. The choreography was something that would be seen in a kindergarten dance receital. And the whole thing looked unrehearsed. Our group...continued

Very amateur production. If I knew someone involved with the event I might be more forgiving, but we left at intermission.

We were surprised that it wasn't a professional show. If we had known that, we wouldn't have attended. Thank you.
