All right let me just spell it out for you.
You could buy tickets to Boston’s Nutcracker and spend $40 (if you’re lucky) on parking, $74 for nosebleed seats, per ticket for a family of four and refreshments, say conservatively speaking $50 for a total of $386. To see something that has absolutely zero relevance to your lives.
Orrrrrrrrrr, you could bring your family to the Annie At Blackburn and see The Lobstah Crackah Ballet performed by locals and featuring a Lobster and my favorites- super crazy menacing seagulls who poop all over the stage along with a whole bevy of other sea creatures. For a teeny tiny fraction of that price!
We went night before last and Snoop Maddie Mad and The Bean have not stopped talking about it. It’s a ballet, so know that up front so there are no words but there is a ton of action and unlike The Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker where it costs you $74 for the worst seats in the house PER TICKET you could go to The Lobstah Crackah Ballet for a mere $15 (suggested donation) per ticket.
So again $386 to go see the Nutcracker Ballet in Boston vs $60 to See Seagulls Poop all over the stage at The Annie!!!
I say go with the Poop all the way and that will leave you precisely $326 left over to spend on Christmas presents downtown!
Not to mention that the seating at the Annie puts you on top of the action instead of needing a set of those stupid mini binoculars to possibly catch a glimpse of the action at The Boston Ballet from the cheap seats. Duh, No-Brainer.
If you bring your family I highly suggest going to Giuseppe’s downstairs from the Annie,the food was fantastic, the service top notch and you can grab one of their specialty pizzas and a couple of kids meals and be out of there for under $50.
Here are some pics from our great night in GTown!
