From its initial posting on December 23, 2016 to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2017, the BuzzFeed News clip of Toledo Ballet’s very special celebrity Mother Gingers has garnered more than 101,500 views from around the world!
See what BuzzFeed News had to say:
For our 76th annual production of the Nutcracker, Toledo Ballet invited three leaders of three different religions in our community to take part in the production, portraying the much-beloved role of Mother Ginger. The Reverend Ronald W. Olszewski, O.S.F.; Imam Dr. Talal Eid; and Rabbi Samuel R. Weinstein not only graciously accepted but also shone in their roles, each placing their own heartfelt interpretation into the character–and demonstrated the how the power of belief and the power of the arts bring a community together and truly promote the passion of the human spirit.
