Q Can you give me one piece of tween advice?. A One of my No. 1 pieces of advice is to never grow up too fast. I think young people, in general, will always try to grow up and do what their big sisters are doing or what (people) are doing on television. But I say there is no problem in being 12 or 7 or 10, you know? You are only that age for one year, so you have to really enjoy it and make it count. This is my only time I’ll ever be 17. So, I’m going to not try to be an 18-year-old — I’m only 17.

In the party scene, Maximo Califano’s handsome and suave Drosselmeyer was nuanced and witty without being domineering. Clearly he still stands somewhat in awe of Nahat’s long-standing interpretation, but he has started to add his own touches. Where Nahat, for instance, returned to the party tipsy, Califano had stuffed his mouth with food. To each his own. The only possibly sour note in the warm and lively Christmas party concerns the Tanenbaum boys, Hans (Francisco Preciado) and Karl (Shuai Chen). Adults portraying rambunctious children just may be an impossible assignment. Nahat turned to slapstick, which is funny — once.
