Read what critics have to say about Keith Michael's The Nutcracker...
“An appealing surprise turned up at the small but always intelligent and appealing New York Theatre Ballet…. Keith Michael has replaced his own Nutcracker, performed from 1985-2010, with a new version and it’s a honey…It’s completely ingenious the way he deploys the pretty cut-out scenery (by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith) and the equally charming costumes (by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan), and it’s extraordinary the way he achieves so much with so small an ensemble. What’s more, the choreography is musical and inventive-and fun. The atmosphere is relaxed and rowdy, the experience a happy one. Don’t forget this one at Nutcracker time next year!” – Robert Gottlieb, The New York Observer
"Situated, delightfully, on top of a mantelpiece and embellished in turn-of-the-20th-century Art Nouveau style, real people and figurines mingle, somewhat surreally, against a protean set designed by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith. Though aimed principally at young children, the production's many clever details, and its crisp, unsentimental, high-octane storytelling have proven equally irresistible to more jaded adults... The magic stays with us well beyond the hour." - Carla Escoda, The Huffington Post
