Visions of Sugar Plums: A Burlesque Nutcracker premieres at the Ritz

Saturday's sold out performance was the second night of this year's Visions of Sugar Plums: A Burlesque Nutcracker at the Ritz Theatre in northeast Minneapolis. The burlesque routine and storyline was developed by director Lily Verlaine, and Nadine Dubois plays the roles of host, dancer and actress. The saucy take on Tchaikovsky's classic will be staged at 7:00 p.m. each Friday and Saturday in December. All photos by Mike Madison.
