Hip-Hop Nutcracker Details
Friday, December 14th at 8 p.m.
Celebrate the holiday season with NJPAC’s very own holiday smash – an urban dance retelling of the timeless fairy tale, featuring rap legend Kurtis Blow as special guest MC.
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.
Location and Directions:
NJPAC is located at 1 Center Street, Newark, New Jersey; a short walk from the Newark Penn Station stop by Newark-bound PATH Train or Amtrak.
Tickets to see Hip-Hop Nutcracker are available NOW at NJPAC.org or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office.
