Christmas Classic The Nutcracker Reimagined at Steppenwolf Reviews & Ratings
It was wonderful! The actors were all divine, esp the little girl, her uncle, and the toys, and the script was light and funny while also being moving - very enjoyable!report as inappropriate
This is definitely a House creation, in the best way possible. I had high expectations from them after seeing The Sparrow, and this exceeded them! It managed to retain humor and cuteness through the dark twist they put on it. Awesome!report as inappropriate

So funny!!! I wasn't sure what to expect from the description but it was a creative, fun, totally awesome play and it made me want to go see more plays from the same company. Highly recommend!!report as inappropriate
A redo of Nutcracker with major changes, retaining only the toy symbols.report as inappropriate
Loved everything about this quirky, inventive show-the actors, the characters, the costumes, the orchestra and especially the heartwarming story. A great offbeat holiday show for the whole family!!!!report as inappropriate

It was a good show but scary for kids. Very deep when you think about all the issues involved.report as inappropriate
The performers were wonderful. The show was enjoyable. However the Name of the show weas highly deceiving- it wasn't what I expected and I'm sure if people were to take children they would be very dissappointed.report as inappropriate
This was such an interesting take on the Christmas classic. I took my 12 year old nieces and felt it was a little too dark for them. The storyline was advanced for their age but they definitely got the broader picture.
Overall, great performance.report as inappropriate
I thought that this redition of the Nutcracker was poorly written. The actors really saved this script. It was terribly boring, but I think that the acting was pretty good.
Definitely too dark/scary for children.
A neat twist on the Nutcracker. Really enjoyed the play and definitely would recommend to others.report as inappropriate
