The Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutcracker Named Best-Loved Nutcracker in the Nation

“The Joffrey Ballet’s long-running version of The Nutcracker has once again won the Goldstar National Nutcracker Award,” reports Mark Kennedy, AP Drama Writer (@KennedyTwits).

Kennedy continues in this Yahoo article: “The Chicago-based show beat out more than 106 other Nutcracker-themed productions to win the 9th annual audience-favorite prize, which includes a cash prize for its education programs. This third win makes The Joffrey Ballet the most decorated show in the competition’s nine years.”

How does a production win the Nutty? Goldstar members rate the Nutcracker-themed productions they attend in 2015. The Nutcracker with the highest user rating is named the winner.

“There were so many Nutcracker productions people loved in cities all across the country, but in the end, The Joffrey Ballet proved to be the crowd favorite,” says Goldstar CEO Jim McCarthy. “We’d like to congratulate the entire cast and crew for their remarkable work.”
