  Sugar Plum Fairy at Skylight Theatre

Sugar Plum Fairy

Skylight Theatre
1816 1/2 N. Vermont Los Angeles

This offbeat and thoroughly original holiday treat offers festive cheer while engaging audiences to participate (think G-rated “Rocky Horror” fun). Appropriate for ages 8 to 80, NPR’s Sandra Tsing Loh's Sugar Plum Fairy tells the story of a 12 year-old girl who dreams of dancing the lead in The Nutcracker. Audiences are encouraged to come decked out in ugly holiday sweaters, tutus, and Hanukah hats and be prepared to join in the 75 minutes of madcap merriment. Bart De Lorenzo directs and Sandra Tsing Loh stars along with Tony Abatemarco and Shannon Holt.

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Director Bart DeLorenzo brings his considerable stylish flair to bear on the proceedings, getting great work from his actors and working well with lighting designer Jared A. Sayeg to deliver dramatic entrances and exits. Keith Mitchell's set is a dense and lovely display of Christmas tropes, including a back curtain made of tinsel, a full-size sleigh, candy canes, Santas and snowflakes painted onto the theatre floor. Loh's writing is sharply observed and humorous, which should not come as a surprise. I laughed quite often. However, it felt attenuated as the show progressed, and the conclusion seemed more like a shrug than a finish."
