It’s “The Nutcracker,” but definitely not as we know it. The Bang Group has taken this Christmas favorite and torn it limb from limb, mixing Tchaikovsky’s original score with music by Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and others. “This immensely entertaining show is musical and witty, melding tap, disco, ballet and contemporary dance over 22 scenes that combine fantasy and silliness to marvelous effect.” – The New York Times. ​
