“A generous dose of contemporary spirit sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls.” – The New York Times

“The Hip Hop Nutcracker turns Tchaikovsky on his head, in the coolest possible way.” – CBS

The Hip Hop Nutcracker sets out on a third national tour following the success of two previous sold-out tours, spread out across 23 U.S. cities. The show is directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, artistic director of the Brooklyn-based theatrical hip-hop dance company Decadancetheatre. It was adapted to contemporary New York City by Mike Fitelson, executive director of United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA), which is the home of the original Hip Hop Nutcracker, and includes hip-hop interludes remixed and reimagined by DJ Boo, as well as an on-stage electric violinist.
