Description: It's the Nutcracker, but definitely not us we know it. Mixing Tchaikovsky's original score with music by Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, and others, NUT/CRACKED turns the sugar-coated ballet into a percussive piece of dance theater. Bubble wrap, jazz standards, and takeout Chinese noodles get stir-fried with plain old lovely dancing in this sweet but subversive riff.
