The Nutcracker at Pentameters Theatre

This re-imagining of the classic Christmas ballet is a curious beast. At times Mitteleuropean rock opera, at times slightly amateurish school play, this imaginatively staged production in Hampstead’s minuscule upstairs theatre will not be to everyone’s taste. Little of the original score remains although everyone will recognise the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. It’s a one-act show, and not cheap at £12, although that did include a free gingerbread angel. 4/10
