The Adrienne Arsht Center continues a partnership with the House Theatre of Chicago, bringing new and inventive productions to South Florida. This holiday season brings a reimagined "Nutcracker." Not a ballet but as a play, this in-the-round production features many of the traditional elements but in a more cohesive narrative that tells the story of joy and loss at the is time of year.
Meant as family entertainment, it still features some elements that might be a little frightening to the youngest audience, including the battle with the Rat King and his minions, but there are also some surprises that will delight young and old, including cookies, living toys and even snow.
In this clip get a sneak peek and meet the director and a few of the Miami based cast for this production, including young Clara the heroine.
