THE NUTCRACKER AT 50
American Repertory Ballet celebrates the 50th season of 'The Nutcracker' ballet this year at McCarter Theater. U.S. 1's Dan Aubrey looks back on how the ballet made its way from poor reviews in Russia to a mainstay of American holiday offerings and remembers Audree Estey, the founder of the Princeton Ballet Society.
Annie Woodside Gribbins, who as a child performed annually in the ballet, reflects on her performing days and on her upcoming, non-dancing role as Clara's mother in this year's production.
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: For a less traditional holiday theater offering, head to Off-Broadstreet Theater in Hopewell for Ken Ludwig's "The Game's Afoot; or Holmes for the Holidays," playing there now through Saturday, December 14.
