How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
We've seen this 3 times before - we love the show, but the last time we went, a few years ago, the crew seemed tired and not into it. HOWEVER this was BY FAR the best iteration of the Nutcracker ever! Maybe it's because Morris himself is playing the dad; maybe it's a couple of years of hiatus; maybe because the wonderful Kraig Patterson is back as the housekeeper - I don't know what the magic was but it KICKED ASS! The Berkeley Symphony was also at the top of their game! A wonderful night!

Help others enjoy a great night out
