The Nutcracker on Horseback

Yes, its just what it sounds like. The play, the nutcracker.. on horses. How could I resist?

The noble horse theatre in Chicago is a fine establishment. Its been around since 1871 and doesn’t have the cheesey factor you’ll find at Midevil Times. It DOES however, have the cheesey factor where it counts – in the show! A girl dancing with a nutcracker enveloped fellow atop a white horse is not something you’ll see any day. It was so silly, but the stunts WERE spetacular! The horses dancing were silly and nice, but the cossack riders! HOLY SMOKES!

ALSO! Okay, the place is BYOB and midway through the show I was reverting back to my 8yo excitement level. I was so into it! There was one point when they did the stunt where the horse wasn’t being ridden but listening to the trainers’ signals.. they sent the horse running out from the dark into the light without the saddle and it felt so magical I let out an audible gasp! It’s ridiculous! Absurd! SO SEE IT IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN!
