NJPAC Presents The Hip Hop Nutcracker Featuring Kurtis Blow On December 15

NJPAC Presents The Hip Hop Nutcracker Featuring Kurtis Blow On December 15

(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents The Hip Hop Nutcracker, an urban dance retelling of the timeless fairy tale, featuring rap legend Kurtis Blow as special guest MC. The performance takes place on Friday, December 15, 2017 at 7:00pm in Prudential Hall.  Tickets range from $29 - $79.

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.

“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. “If you’re more into break-dancing than ballet, but still love Tchaikovsky, this is the Nutcracker for you,” says CBS.

Last year, NJPAC’s production of The Hip Hop Nutcracker completed its second national tour, spread out across 23 U.S. cities, earning acclaim from critics and audiences coast to coast. Don’t miss this chance to treat the entire family to a new holiday tradition – right in your own backyard! 

NJPAC is located at One Center Street in Newark, New Jersey.
