Very entertaining for children and adults! Swings you from laughter to almost-tears. I found the first half of the performance to be stronger than the second, but overall, a solid piece.

We saw this performance four years ago and knew that we would take our nieces when they were ready. They are now 8, 8 and 6 and the time has come. It was great. One of them actually sat on the edge of her seat through the entire performance. ...continued

As advertised, no Tchaikovsky and no ballet, but that doesn't mean no music and no dance. At the end they ask us to tell our friends if we liked the show, and I have been doing just that. Go!

Many new cast members, same wonderful evening. Last year I told families in restaurants to take their children. I'll do it again this year!

Imaginative, joyful, poignant. Pretty easy to understand why this has become an annual holiday tradition. Despite the sober start, it really is great for children of ALL ages. Superb and talented cast; stunning set design & puppetry; The Chopin...continued

When we got there and there were so many young children running around and playing on the stage (theater in the round) I worried that it would be too childish and noisy with talking.
Never fear, everyone was held spellbound.
It was a great way to...continued

This was the best holiday show I have ever seen. I can't wait to see it again. The chopin theater never disappoints me with whatever show they put on and this holiday classic just confirmed the theater's creativity and style.

They should decide whether it's a kid's show (and eliminate the sexual innuendos, the extreme-scary part, and the focus on and direction mention of death ... OR ... decide it's an adult show ... and rewrite, redirect and totally re-do it.

Had a delightful time. Highly recommend it. A bit scary at the end for really small kids. Be aware - this is NOT identical to the story line followed by most productions of The Nutcracker ballet.

This play never disappoints! It is so much fun for the entire family. I think it is even better this year. Clara is adorable and her voice is beautiful for her solo. Fritz is fantastic and really emotes a brotherly affection for his sister Clara....continued

This is a smart, funny, and ultimately touching take on the Nutcracker that children and adults will both enjoy. A great show, regardless the season.
