In this rip-roaring classic, the audience is treated to a hilarious behind-the-scenes peek at an acting troupe rehearsing and performing the farce Nothing On. Despite nerves, dropped lines and technical difficulties, they make it through rehearsal and open the show. As time goes by, things deteriorate until pandemonium ensues and axe-wielding co-stars, drunken cast members and misplaced sardines take center stage during a disaster of a performance that threatens to jinx the old saying, “The show must go on.”
Think you know the Nutcracker? Think again! Spice up the most wonderful time of the year with this cheeky take on a classic tale!
Location: Cowles Center For the Arts, Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, USA
