Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

First I need to say you CANNOT compare this production with the original Nutcracker. This is very different and done in a very artistic and fun way. The party scene was fun but slow, however, from the snow scene on, it was non-stop fast fun. The snow scene was absolutely beautiful. The music was perfect for the performance on the silks. Second half was outrageous fun. Starts off slow with the beautiful fish act on the rings and speeds up with the hilarious money and the beautiful flower girls. Ton's of laughs with the candy cane act. This was original and fun. Glad I took the time to come. Hope everyone will experience what I did next year. I was on a high for 3 days thinking about this play. Thank you Caroline Calouche and her team. PS Where else can you see a show like this around here.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

The first 250 words of this review is just a waste of space and the readers time. why does this critic feel he has to comment on the crowd and that 2 nutcrackers are going on at the same time in the same building. I think that is amazing that Charlotte's dance scene is offering such diversity! You have the choice to see a beautiful ballet and then a modernized version of the story.

I chose to see Clara's Trip this weekend and thoroughly appreciated CC&Co. reaching outside the box. Putting hip-hop and break dancing to the classical music to liven up the party scene was so much fun to watch!

Of course people stayed for Act 2 because Act 1 left you wanting more.

I truly hope this critic learns to appreciate what CC&Co. is doing for the dance community of Charlotte.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

Caroline Calouche & Co.'s Clara's Trip was an amazing breath of fresh air into a traditional ballet that can become very mundane and boring.

The show was terrific. One of the best I have ever seen. Here or anywhere.

Re: “Theater review: The Day They Shot John Lennon

Why does the reviewer suggest that McLure's effort at exploring Lennon's death might be "crassly opportunistic"? It's a playwright's duty to explore the human condition, and what better way than to have various characters gather near the Dakota building in the wake of an American tragedy. Yes, the reviewer's math is way off-the-mark, but so too is his artistic sensibility. Which is probably why he is a critic, and not a creator of art.

Re: “Meet Charlotte's new alpha slob at The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Shane's performance was a character role, and was sung perfectly in character. I personally would have found it odd and inappropriate for such a character as Barfee to go from goose-stepping around the stage to suddenly start singing like Josh Groban. Newcomer Kusterer's performance should have been given some kudos, also - she matched her veteran peers note for note and action for action. Overall, I did not find a weak point in the cast or the performance itself.

Re: “Meet Charlotte's new alpha slob at The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Saw the show opening night and was delighted! All the performances were funny,well-done and at times, poignant. Miss Midkiff's singng was a highlight and all the performances had voices that fit their characters, I thought.Very professional presentation by the director,choreographer, band, etc. Highly recommended !
