Hip-Hop Nutcracker

Directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, The Hip Hop Nutcracker offers a contemporary update to Tchaikovsky's classic ballet. A supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, a DJ, a violinist and MC Kurtis Blow, one of hip-hop's founding fathers, will be on hand. Expect to see 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. " It all goes down tonight at 8 at the State Theatre. Tickets cost $25 to $65. (Niesel)
