Mayor Michael Nutter to Make His Pennsylvania Ballet Debut


Yeah, that’s right: Mayor Nutter will make his balletic debut in the Pennsylvania Ballet’s March 16th matinee presentation of Coppélia. Set in a nineteenth century village, Coppélia tells the age-old story of a man and his infatuation with a doll. It’s a little strange but a beautifully choreographed and uproarious comedy. And, for one performance only, Mayor Nutter will exercise his acting chops, playing the role of a lifetime, “The Mayor.” It’s just a walk-on role, but this should be good [read: weird].

See Mayor Nutter in his dancing shoes Sunday March 16th, 2 p.m., at Academy of Music, Broad & Locust Streets.
