The Backstage Beat says Nutcracker “should be a sellout”
"A magic handkerchief, dancing life-sized dolls, a hand-carved gift that comes to life, and an enchanted trip through the snow to the Land of the Sweets…what more could a young girl want on Christmas Eve? And what more could Atlanta ask for? Maybe a theatre that evokes an evening in Morocco, with a star-studded sky and clouds borne by invisible winds? A snow storm inside the theatre? An orchestra made up of some of the region’s best musicians? Christmas melodies played on an enormous pipe organ? Good acting and even better dancing? The Atlanta Ballet’s 'The Nutcracker' offered these and more on opening night at the Fabulous Fox."
