    One-Man Nutcracker

    written & performed by Chris Davis

    directed by Mary Tuomanen

    sound design by Adriano Shaplin

    choreography by Hallie Rumsey-Lasersohn

    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, were all channeled through one actor. Chris Davis is proud to bring you One-Man Nutcracker, a re-telling of the original E.T.A. Hoffman Nutcracker Story and the Ballet, retold within his unique theatrical lense.

    "...a strikingly original writer and performer."
