You know the Nutcracker the ballet, but what if the ballet was performed by only one man? If the daughter Marie, little boy Fritz, creepy uncle Drosselmeir, the mice, the Sugar Plumb fairy, was channeled through one actor. Chris Davis is proud to bring you One-Man Nutcracker, a hilarious re-telling of the original E.T.A. Hoffman Nutcracker Story and the Ballet, re-imagined through his unique theatrical lens.
