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.

It was great, if not for Goldstar, it would have slipped by me. The editors that came from the Onion seemed to be funny men, funny writers, but not necessarily refined performers. This was not a negative, but actually enhanced the performance. It seemed that much more real, the slide show presentation and observations made seemed to be in the moment. If they tour through again, I will be buying my tickets right away as well as for friends.
Quotes & Highlights
- Read The Onion at its website.
Deadpan satire and journalistic skill collide in the phenomenon that is The Onion. Founded in 1988 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the “fake news” newspaper is the notable precursor to such biting, faux-news programs as The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
Last year, The Onion News Network, an online send-up of 24-hour cable TV news, was named a Peabody Award winner and praised as “hilarious, trenchant and not infrequently hard to distinguish from the real thing.” Join current Onion editor Joe Randazzo and fellow staffers for a multimedia discussion on the state of media, politics and pop culture as they offer up insight into how the paper’s culture-skewering stories and hilarious headlines are created.
