A New Nutcracker?

Yes, indeed, and, apparently it’s terrific. Even the critics love it.

Robert Gottlieb of The New York Observer wrote: “An appealing surprise turned up at the small but always intelligent and appealing New York Theatre Ballet…. Keith Michael has replaced his own Nutcracker, performed from 1985-2010, with a new version and it’s a honey…It’s completely ingenious the way he deploys the pretty cut-out scenery (by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith) and the equally charming costumes (by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan), and it’s extraordinary the way he achieves so much with so small an ensemble. What’s more, the choreography is musical and inventive-and fun. The atmosphere is relaxed and rowdy, the experience a happy one.”
