There is a wonderful new Nutcracker to celebrate the season. PiPE DREAM's The Nutcracker and the Mouse King takes the basic Chiristmas Eve story, transforming heroine ClaraMarie into an inquisitive, teenage woman warrior who, along with her strong, silent Nutcracker, defends the toys and terrorized royal mouse family against the Mouse King. While there is a soldier/ballerina and Arabian dancer, this Nutcracker is a heartfelt musical written by PiPE DREAM's Collin Simon and Liz Muller. Their songs explore the not-so-sweet offstage aspects of ClaraMarie's family life and the Mouse King's Borg-like recruitment techniques.  Ultimately, the theme of this The Nutcracker isn't about toys and tutus; it's about treating others with respect and kindness.
