The Bang Group's Notorious 'Nut/Cracked'

The Bang Group's notorious holiday Nut/Cracked returns for its 16th anniversary season for three performances, Dec. 20-22, at The Flea. David Parker's comic, subversive, neo-vaudeville version of this favorite Christmas show is unique. Mixing Tchaikovsky’s original score with music by Duke Ellington, Glen Miller and others, the company turns the sugar-coated ballet into a percussive piece of dance theatre. Expect tap dancing, singing and some unusual pointe shoe activity. Nothing is sacred in Nutcracked.

December 20-22  (Thursday & Friday at 7 pm and Saturday at 3 pm)

The Flea, 20 Thomas Street
