I Love The Nutcracker
Some people get into the Christmas spirit by listening to Christmas carols, but I find them annoying. To get myself into the holiday spirit, I have been listening to “The Nutcracker” endlessly at work. I am not a ballet connoisseur, but I like to see this ballet during the holiday season whenever I can. Thankfully, there is no shortage of viewing options in the Philadelphia region this weekend. The Keswick Theatre in Glenside will be offering a production of the ballet, performed by the First State Ballet Theatre. And if you can’t quite see yourself enjoying a traditional ballet, the Philly Nutt Crak-Up at the Painted Bride Theatre sounds like a riot. Or, why not see both? Perhaps the best news of all is the fact that both options can be enjoyed for half-price by visiting the PhillyFunGuide website.
