The Hip Hop Nutcracker
with Special Guest MC Kurtis Blow

This holiday mash-up for the whole family is back by popular demand! The Hip Hop Nutcracker reimagines Tchaikovsky’s classic score through explosive hip-hop choreography. A dozen all-star dancers, an on-stage DJ, and an electric violinist bring the traditional Nutcracker story to life in contemporary New York City.

  • Special guest emcee Kurtis Blow charted the first rap gold record with “The Breaks” in 1980. Blow opens the show with a rapping introduction.
  • The New York Times calls The Hip Hop Nutcracker, “A generous dose of contemporary spirit sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls.”

Please note: Parents with young children may feel more comfortable sitting in the third row back or more on balcony levels. Please take this into consideration when selecting the seats that feel best for you and your family.
