Erica Noonan in the Boston Globe provides another nice write-up on regional/local Nutcracker productions in the Boston area.

‘The Nutcracker Suite’ dances closer to home

The Sugarplum Fairy is alive and well in the suburbs northwest of Boston. You can see her, along with heroine Clara, godfather Herr Drosselmeyer, and Mother Ginger (complete with polichinelles bursting out of her skirt) at performances of the holiday classic “The Nutcracker Suite” across the region.

From Christine Temin in the Boston Globe:

Quote:
‘Dancer’s Christmas’ is a festive whirl

I hope I don’t get Father Robert VerEecke defrocked for this, but his 23d annual production of “A Dancer’s Christmas” would in some strict circles be deemed a tad irreverent.

VerEecke is the Jesuit artist-in-residence at Boston College and the founder of the Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble there. In the world of liturgical dance -- quite separate from the usual ballet-and-modern circuit -- he’s highly regarded. He’s written a book on the subject, and last year his troupe performed at World Youth Day in Toronto, in a service over which the Pope presided.

A Dancer’s Christmas at Boston College


When you think about it, you realize that a lot of the Christmas entertainments we enjoy aren’t really about Christmas. Even The Nutcracker only riffs on festive traditions of the season. A Dancer’s Christmas at Boston College focuses on the religious meaning of the holiday; it not only celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ but affirms that God is still spreading good in the world.

More on "A Dancer's Christmas", from Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:

Quote:
‘Christmas’ spirit remains strong

When Father Bob first choreographed “A Dancer’s Christmas” 23 years ago, all he hoped to create was “a collage of dances that expressed the soul of a dancer at this special time of the year.” Little did he know that the annual spectacle would become second only to Boston Ballet’s “Nutcracker” as the most frequently performed piece of original choreography made in Greater Boston in the past two decades.
