The Bang Groups beloved, witty response to The Nutcracker has delighted audiences for 2 decades! Join us in celebration of the 20th season of Nut/Cracked.
Nut/Cracked takes its inspiration from all corners of the dance canon, from tap riffs to en pointe ballet, by way of bubble wrap, disco, and Chinese take-out noodles. In Nut/Cracked, choreographer David Parker, finds beauty in the ridiculous, waltzing us through many incarnations of Tchaikovsky's score, including versions by Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller, as well as the traditional orchestral suite. You'll never watch The Nutcracker in quite the same way again!
"Not only immensely entertaining but also intensely musical and witty, melding tap, disco, ballet and contemporary dance over 22 scenes that combine fantasy and silliness to marvelous effect."
Roslyn Sulcas, New York Times
"If you're suffering from Nutcracker overload, The Bang Group's sweet but subversive riff is a tonic. Bubble wrap, Duke Ellington, and takeout Chinese noodles get stir-fried with sections of plain old lovely dancing, and it works."
Leigh Witchel, New York Post
Nut/Cracked is 65 minutes in length and is performed without and intermission
