The Nutcracker

Just back from The Nutcracker, which was good, but I didn't enjoy the production as much as I do the one in San Francisco. The choreography wasn't as intricate, though the first act was more humorous and lighthearted. But I just wasn't as moved as I usually am by the grand pas de deux of the Sugar Plum Fairy. Usually it brings tears to my eyes — this year my nose just ran, because the gentleman sitting next to me was wearing some *stinky* cologne!
