NYCB Vol. 5 No. 2 - Nutcracker

[2/50] In 1964, NYCB scaled up the production to fit the New York State Theater.

“When we first lit it at the State Theater we had a call from Con Edison on the West Side,” says Horgan. “There seemed to be a surge consistent with our performances—the candy and all that. They could always tell when we were doing Nutcracker because we pulled so much power.”
