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.

"This Is Ireland" was a good show but did not focus on Ireland and its music. Though a soprano sang a piece from Madama Butterfly beautifully, I would have preferred a song of Ireland and the same goes for the Irish Black American who sang a contemporary piece which had no reference to Ireland. There was a large movie screen above the orchestra which could have been used more effectively showing Ireland of the present and of the past-instead it was wasted.
