"The Marx Brothers played havoc with the worlds of opera and horse racing. What if they'd had a crack at a ballet company? Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore delightfully answer the question in their comedy with music - the movie the Marx Brothers never made, but should have. With book and lyrics by Van Zandt and Milmore, and music by Ed Alton (and, of course Tchaikovsky), the hilarity ensues when the world's greatest detective, Felix T. Filibuster comes to the rescue of dowager patron of the arts Constance Stuffington, whose fortune has been swindled away. Can opening night of the city's Nutcracker ballet be saved in time? With physical gags, slapstick comedy, one-liners, puns, chases, beautiful girls, new musical numbers, and the craziest version of The Nutcracker you'll ever see! A Night at the Nutcracker is a musical Christmas farce that's fun for the whole family."--Publisher's website.
