Photos: The Burlesque Nutcracker takes a holiday classic to a saucier, spicier level

Last Friday was no ordinary Friday in my life.

I was gifted not one, but TWO tickets to the Burlesque Nutcracker. So what did I do? I brought my best guy friend, hopped in our Uber and HIT THE TOWN PEEPS.

When we arrived to Triple Door I had no idea what was in store, but let me tell you, it was - wait for it...

GLITTER. GLAM. DANCE. JAZZ HANDS.

Let that sink in for ya. The Burlesque Nutcracker was everything and MORE than I could have imagined. Not only could we sit comfortably at our own designated table but we could order drinks and food throughout the show! Boy oh boy did we indulge as we belly laughed and shimmied our shoulders throughout the show.

It felt like we had escaped to a Vegas show. All of the actors and actresses were not only all gorgeous but had phenomenal stage presence. I didn't want it to end! As we sipped our Pinot Grigio we were dazzled by all that was happening on stage!

There were women hanging from the ceiling, pants being ripped off, and dancing - oh so much happy dancing. It was actually really cool to see so much talent put into a performance, you could tell that all of these people worked SUPER hard to give the crowd a show.

I would HIGHLY recommend seeing The Burlesque Nutcracker as a girls night, date night, or just a fun night out on the town with a big group!!

TEN OUT OF TEN, TWO THUMBS UP, A TONY AWARD!
