Review from joemastro

The live music was a great pleasure as were the excellent sets, costumes and most of the leads. Was a bit upset the theater allowed late seating after it already began late -- a significant distraction for the beginning numbers. Also a bit...continued

Review from Jose Reyes

The show was really good.. nice costumes, great dancing, the sets fantastic, and the orchestra was fabulous... when you can hear them. Because of the disorganization at the entrance, a lot of people were late to come into the theater. There...continued

Review from Allen Krause

The dancing was very good, the sets were beautiful, the special effects and overall pageantry were terrific, and the orchestra added much. Unfortunately the venue was awful -- as late as 5 minutes before the show was to start there was a long...continued

Review from Nancee

The orchestra did a great job but the actual ballet was a bit mediocre. Some of the performances lacked emotion and came off a bit dull. I didn't get the feel of happiness that one should when watching the Nutcracker. There were obvious moments of...continued

I enjoyed the show very much minus the talkative group of people who sat next time to me. The dancing was phenomenal and I will definitely being going again next year.

Review from Sykogrnfairy

The ballet was beautiful but when the venue allows steams of people to come in even 20 minutes after the show has begun it's a little hard to see. Also the 3 man orchestra was not very loud and could not be heard over any kind of applause. The...continued

Review from DanceLA

The performance was lovely-everything and more that I would expect from a production that is featuring children and students dancing. The parking was an issue along with the will call situation and that was a factor in the late start and seating...continued

Review from Delia

I really enjoyed the perfomance, although the person in front of me had a child on his lap that partially obstructed my view. Also, it was stifling hot and there was no air circulating in the loge section! The stage scenery and lighting was...continued

I give the production five stars, great sets, staging, costumes, lighting, dancing and music! I give some of the members of the audience minus 1 star. People, please don't talk during a live theater performance, and please don't bring small...continued

Review from ssgopete

Great event. Goldstar desk was clearly marked and easy to get to. They let us pick up the tix early, well before the normal ticket holders could get in.
That was a blessing, since it had been pouring rain for hours (days), somewhat of a novelty...continued

I surprised my mother with tickets to this show and she absolutely loved it. She went with a few other people and everyone thanked me for the idea and said the show was great and that it had an incredible production. From the theater to the...continued

Review from Amanda Leone

orchestra and costumes were great. We arrived 45 minutes early and were still late getting into the theatre because the will call process was so slow.
The show and seats were great. My 3 1/2 year old loved it. SHe sat through the entire show.

We had a lovely evening and the play was absolutely magical. It was great how they had a will call area for goldstar ticket holder and we didn't have to wait in the long line. Had a great evening and would totally recommend!!

The event was fine. The loge area was not, uncomfortably warm.

Review from Pamela T

Overall enjoyed the performance. The orchestra was great but we were disappointed with the dancers. Not quite as polished as in the past. The theater should not let in late comers after the performance begins. Very distracting.

Review from Donna

The show was amazing! The set and special effect made the show a standout. The music was excellent, the ochestra played their hearts out and I appreciated the sound system in the theater and could hear clearly in the loge.
