Ovation TV: Battle of the Nutcrackers Grudge Match!

If you haven't gotten near enough of Little Ralphie and his Red Ryder, nor the Grinch, nor Rudolph, just wait for the endless reps of The Nutcraker!

:rofl:

Ovation TV is having a Nutcracker marathon all this month, and you can vote for your fave interpretation.

I'm totally geeking out on Tchaikovsky right now. :woohoo: :woohoo: :bounce:

1. Hey, I've dvr'd all of them and
will pick one to show little nclib. He's been collecting nutcrackers for the past couple of years. I think tonights might be the winner here.

2. Me too
Of the ones they've shown I like The Movie Version. The Nutcracker himself is way cool with the really large head. :D

:hi: NClib!

3. I think that's my favorite too.
You probably know the set and costumes were created by Maurice Sendak.

:hi:

4. The best one is 'The Hard Nut' which is freaking hilarious.

I have only managed to see it once and tried to tape it but it didn't copy well. It is sort of a sendup, and IRRC, involved Barbie Dolls, and GI Joes and black women dressed as French Maids running around on toe shoes...

OMG OMG OMG OMG They have the DVD at Amazon

5. I bought it!! Along with a bunch of other stuff to complete my Christmas
shopping, except for a couple of gift cards for my daughter and her boyfriend.

I can't wait to get this and watch it with my daughter. She used to take ballet and she will enjoy it thoroughly.
