Corruption, mobs, and a fairy-tale retelling of the Nutcracker brought to life through the talented Christa DelSorbo. First, let’s talk about what Chautona Havig did here. First thing of all, I’m her daughter; so when she told me that she was turning the classic fairy-tale The Nutcracker into a mystery retelling during the roaring 20’s I may have raised an… Read more »
