Casse Noisette: A Fairy Ballet

Catskill’s intimate Bridge Street Theatre will close out its spectacular 2018 Subscription Season with the world premiere of Philadelphia-based playwright Michael Whistler’s brilliant, funny, and touching “Casse Noisette” (The Nutcracker). The play masterfully interweaves the life of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky with that of a deeply-closeted modern-day American high school teacher obsessed with Tchaikovsky’s music. Sugar Plum Fairies and phone sex workers collide in this tale about discovering the strength to be true to one’s self, whatever the cost.
