In my experience, no. Nutcracker is NYCB’s biggest money-maker; they even suspend their under-30 discount prices for the run.

I have to throw Laura Benanti in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown into the mix. The night I saw it, she couldn’t breathe without getting a laugh. We were putty in her hands.

Russell Harvey plays the Duke of Cornwall. He signs most of his lines but also speaks. Michael Arden is credited as his Aide. He signs the spoken lines to the Duke and speaks his lines for the other actors/audience. Regan signs a few lines to him, and Oswald signs and speaks his lines while addressing Cornwall.

Saw this in original run at the Vineyard. Loved it.
Even though the theater was well air conditioned, my body started sweating as we reached the end of act three. Once I left, I realized that it was because I was anticipating another event like what ended act one.
The three leads (Alan Cumming, Ronald Peet, and Charlayne Woodward) are well matched and delivering fierce, powerful work. Also loved the three ladies who made up the gospel choir. They sound incredible and maintain a solid presence throughout.
I loved how ambiguous the ending was and how I’m still turning over this play five days late
