"Through this re-mixed and re-imagined version of the classic, the dynamic performers of The Hip Hop Nutcracker take us on a journey that celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season. The production features hip-hop pioneer Kurtis “The Breaks” Blow, the first rapper to be signed by a major label in 1979. 42 years and a heart transplant later, this hip-hop founding father is still performing as MC of The Hip Hop Nutcracker.

Just like the original, in The Hip Hop Nutcracker,  Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a dream adventure taking on a gang of mice, visiting the land of sweets and learning the lessons of the holiday season. Innovative digital graffiti and visuals transform the landscape of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved story from traditional 19th Century Germany to the vibrant, diverse sights and sounds of contemporary New York City. Through the modern, self-expressive gaze of hip hop culture, the dynamic performers of The Hip Hop Nutcracker celebrate the magic of the entire holiday season.

Produced by New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Directed and Choreographed by Jennifer Weber" (Promo Copy)
