Boston’s holiday classic The Urban Nutcracker returns for its 13th season. What exactly is The Urban Nutcracker, you ask? Check out this description from its website:
Fusing Tchaikovsky’s classic score with Duke Ellington’s jazz interpretation, Urban Nutcracker puts a modern spin on the 19th Century fairy tale and transports the audience to an enchanted world not unlike their own. Urban Nutcracker delivers classic ballet, urban tap, hip hop, swing, flamenco, step, jazz, traditional Chinese, modern and a few other surprises that will have your family at the edge of their seats.
This family-friendly performance is welcoming Boston’s college student population with a special college night this coming Saturday, December 14. Students can purchase tickets for Saturday night’s 7:30 show for 50% off with the promo code student. This year’s show isn’t to be missed: it features Boston native and So You Think You Can Dance season six winner Russell Ferguson! For more information, see the show’s website and the flier below.
