NUTCRACKER! THE MUSICAL – Pleasance

In London theatre, Musicals, Reviews by Caroline Hanks-FarmerLeave a Comment

Since first being performed in 1892, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky has become a staple of the Christmas season for ballet and dance companies throughout the world – heck I even own three different DVDs of performances. The romantic story of the boy, turned into a toy, by bad magic, being rescued by a beautiful girl matched with Tchaikovsky’s immortal music make a perfect combination and really bring the Christmas season to life. In the countless productions around, possibly the most unusual is Nutcracker! The Musical which has just started a Christmas run in The Pleasance Theatre, Islington.
