‘The Nutcracker’ Dances Into Adler Saturday

December 9th, 2016

You don’t have Santa Claus shave his beard and sport a handlebar mustache. You don’t paint Rudolph’s nose green. And you don’t mess with the Nutcracker, says Joedy Cook, director of Ballet Quad Cities. “It’s a holiday tradition, people are used to coming out every year and seeing it, and it’s wonderful just the way it is, if it isn’t broken, why break it?” Cook said with a chuckle. “I know that sometimes people are always looking for something new and different, and we do that with some of our shows, but with Nutcracker we like to keep it classic.” What that means is a reprise... Read More

Recently I took the audacious step of advising parents that it was fine for their kids to see the Megadeth show at the I wireless center.  Despite the fact that there were no injuries, deaths or bad karmic experiences recorded after the show, there were a few (and by a few, I mean two) people who objected to my opinion.
