"...During this, the Holiday Season, there are many family shows and concerts in our area. Among these is the return of "The Nutcracker And The King Of Mice", E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic retold with great imagination, using puppets, lighting and music , exploring the darker side of childhood. Directed by puppet designer, Cynthia Von Orthal, this years version is a little sharper than last..."

"...Incurable Theater returns to the original E.T.A. Hoffman 1816 short story for its puppet version of "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice," and while it certainly won't give The Joffrey anything to worry about in competition, it is a charming and intimate re-telling of the story that won't cause the family budget too much distress."
