How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A clever reinvention of a tired holiday classic, The Hard Nut tries very hard to entertain you - and succeeds as often as not. So what if the choreography (esp. for the "specialty" dances) is uninspired? So what if the dancing is the sloppiest I've seen out of a professional company in forever? The cross-gender casting, marvelous costumes and scene-stealing Nanny make up for many of the piece's faults. Go for the music and the production values and you won't be disappointed.
