The Hard Nut

Hey !
This is for you.

So yesterday in the city, we were talking about how our husbands had no appreciation of ballet in general, and The Nutcracker specifically, and I mentioned that there's an hilarious send up of The Nutcracker called The Hard Nut (actually I think I called it the cracked nut, but whatever).

It's a Mark Morris ballet, and there's a review of it at CultureVulture that really says more than I ever could.

Two main points:
It's both a parody and an homage of the classic ballet.
There are men in tutus, who dance on pointe.
