Mark Sugiyama, Eclectic Arts

“At once edgy, weird, charming, and delightful.”

Sharon Cumberland, Seattle Gay News

“A distinct and familiar feeling of jovial warmth – a near impossible emotion to leave McCaw Hall without!”

Camille Mauceri, TeenTix

“To see The Nutcracker as a kid is to be transported into a sensory confection.”

Stefan Milne, Seattle Met

“PNB’s production delivered everything I love about the holiday season: sweets, excitement, romance, and a magical feeling in the air. A joyous celebration of imagination and the bittersweet flavor of growing up.”

Midori Blanchard, UW Daily

The Nutcracker gives Seattle audiences their first snow of the season, as well as an opportunity to believe in magic, family, imagination and dreams again.”

“The production is sumptuous, the children entrancing, the music superbly played, the sets and costumes gorgeous.”
