The Hip Hop Nutcracker featuring Kurtis Blow
NJPAC’s very own holiday smash – an urban dance retelling of the timeless fairy tale, featuring rap legend Kurtis Blow as special guest MC – returns for two promotional broadcast tapings before a live audience.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker resets Tchaikovsky’s classic score to explosive hip-hop choreography courtesy of Jennifer Weber. A dozen all-star dancers – plus a DJ, a violinist, and awesome digital scenery – bring the traditional Nutcracker story to new life, but with a distinctly urban twist. This evening-length show celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season.
The Hip Hop Nutcracker is celebrating its fifth-anniversary sell-out tour, spread out across 29 U.S. cities, earning acclaim from critics and audiences coast to coast. “Hip Hop Nutcracker brings a generous dose of contemporary spirit, sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls,” raves The New York Times.
Don’t miss the chance to treat your family to this beloved show, so close to home!
