Theatre Royale has been touring Southern California presenting a Broadway-quality production of Disney's NEWSIES starting at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula, CA on June 22 and ending in Fresno with two performances on July 13, 2019 at 2pm and 8pm. I can tell you after seeing the show at the Soraya at CSUN last weekend, I now understand why this high energy musical has been so popular with audiences since its 2012 Broadway opening where it was nominated for 8 Tony Awards and won two for Best Choreography and Best Original Score. There is something in it for everyone, with the kind of magnificently energetic dancing that ranges from ballet leaps to tap and every form of movement in between.

BWW Review: NUTCRACKER, London Coliseum
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Dec 17, 2016

The beautiful story of Nutcracker is as festive as Father Christmas and mince pies. Clara and her Christmas Eve battle with the evil Mouse King to rescue her beloved Nutcracker leads to a magical trip to the land of the Sugar Plum Fairy. When Tamara Rojo took over as Artistic Director of the English National Ballet, she inherited Wayne Eagling's version of Nutcracker. As she has since more than proved her innovative style, it seems a shame that she has not updated this rather muddled version. Eagling's version keeps Clara as the focus, imagining herself as an adult travelling to the land of snow with her handsome suitor.There is more than a hint of sexual awakening in this version, as well as some confusing narrative. The Mouse King is not actually seen to be defeated and the morphing of Clara into the Sugar Plum Fairy is a little bewildering.
