Clara's Trip: A Nutcracker Story CL Recommends

When: Fri., Dec. 20, 7 p.m. and Sat., Dec. 21, 2 & 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $35-$45
Year three of Clara’s Trip is rolling into Booth Playhouse for a three-performance engagement, beginning this Friday. It delivers Yuletide dancing, flying and a hip-hopping work-in-progress in every good sense of the phrase. The frame for this updated Nutcracker, created and presented by Caroline Calouche & Co., remains the same: Clara LeBlanc will have a nasty mishap at a holiday party that lands her in a hospital. Ah, but as Clara dozes off, her dreams become a fantasia of good friends and get-well gifts with the folks at Calouche & Co. inserting fresh twists. Very much like the early years of North Carolina Dance Theatre’s Nutcracker, design elements are evolving in successive productions of Clara’s Trip. Expect new snow, flower, candy-cane and fish costumes by Kriss Yavelak and Marie Calouche, along with new backdrops by Jennifer O’Kelly that coordinate with her lighting design. Of course, the folks at Calouche & Co. are best known for their aerial feats, so trapeze, aerial silks, stilt walking and more are also in the holiday package. (Perry Tannenbaum)
