ANOTHER ‘NUTCRACKER’ TWIST: Menlowe Ballet also has done something fun by blending two holiday classics, “The Nutcracker” and “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Choreographer and Artistic Director Michael Lowe has set “It’s a Wonderful Nutcracker” in a small American town in the 1940s, just like Bedford Falls in Frank Capra’s movie. “I felt that the movie’s tone and storyline could translate beautifully into a new kind of ‘Nutcracker’ that celebrated the best of both stories,” Lowe said.
