Chris Davis is proud to bring you One-Man Nutcracker, an unconventional re-telling of the original E.T.A. Hoffman story and Ballet. "...a strikingly original writer and performer." - The Scotsman "a refreshing splash to the face, laced with both sharp wit and warm humanity." - Gary Day, Broad St. Review "Chris Davis One-Man Nutcracker expertly delivered on its promise, and brought forth more than just the inherent physical comedy of an everyday comedian performing a ballet in its entirety. The tenderness of Americanized Christmas, family, and loss was not lost on the creator-performer." - Mira Treatman, Thinking Dance VENUE ONLINE ONLY A zoom link will be sent to you an hour before showtime.
