Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite
A top Nickelodeon Jr. show, Max & Ruby entertains children around the world with its charming portrayal of bunny life. Disappointed at having to miss a performance of The Nutcracker due to a snowstorm, Max, a wily little boy, and Ruby, his bossy older sister, listen to their grandmother as she recounts the classic story. She tells of how a young girl saves a living nutcracker from an army of mice then traipses with him through a magical land of snow and candy. Captivated, Max and Ruby’s imaginations begin to bring the tale to life, peopling the stage with classic characters such as the elegant Sugar Plum Fairy, the dashing nutcracker prince, and the set-changing stagehand whose father never let him dance. Original choreography by ballet veteran Patti Caplette transforms The Nutcracker’s classic pirouettes and arabesques into reimagined moves that spring from the youthful bunnies’ minds while Tchaikovsky’s iconic score—featuring the timeless, bell-filled Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy—mixes with the play’s original songs.<p>
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel.
