The Urban Nutcracker is BACK!

Anthony Williams’ Urban Nutcracker, the modern Boston-centric holiday classic, will celebrate its 20th annual season at the Shubert Theatre. The move to the historic Shubert Theatre will continue to allow even more Bostonians an opportunity to experience what The Boston Globe has deemed “a holiday arts tradition reflecting the rich multicultural diversity of Boston.”

The performance will showcase winter scenes set in present-day downtown Boston, blending the rhythms of Duke Ellington with the classical music of Tchaikovsky. Anchored by classical ballet, the performances also include a broad range of dance forms such as tap, hip hop, flamenco, and jazz, accompanied throughout the performance by a small live orchestra, a first for Urban Nutcracker.

Hip-hop holiday fun... [with] enthusiasm and a sense of inlcusive community onstage." - The Boston Globe
