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.

I have seen John Waters Performance on Netflix, so I sorta knew what was going to be happening. However, Waters kept his act up to date and discussed different topics than his previous show! Elvis Perkins was also great, however, I did have a hard time hearing some of the lyrics, but that wasn't his fault since people "love" to come to shows late! Seriously people get your shiz together and don't be fussy while a show is going on!
The book signing afterward was pretty cool and well organized. UCLA has a lot of events and they their staff well trained and professional.

John Waters is always a hoot, as witty, cynical, and contemporary as ever. I would like to have seen Matt Gubler do more of a schtick, and Elvis' musical act was funny, but got repetative. He could have shortened it by one or two numbers.
Quotes & Highlights
As a screenwriter, director, artist, actor, and all-around filth elder, John Waters has become a rotten renaissance man of unprecedented cultural influence. Not only was his movie Hairspray turned into a wildly successful Tony Award-winning musical, his recently published memoir, Role Models, has been called “alarmingly refined.” Waters’ one-man vaudeville act, This Filthy World Goes Hollywood sends up show business, the art world, and his own lunatic career in a rapid-fire performance. Dynamic modern-rock recording artist Elvis Perkins opens the show with a solo set, and actor Matthew Gray Gubler hosts as the evening’s emcee.
