Yeah, yeah, it’s easy to get a little tired of The Nutcracker, with its silly premise and extravagant glitz. That’s why companies are always looking for a new spin on it — we’ve seen an urban Nutcracker and Neos Dance is bringing back its Nutcracker laden with references to local history, people and events.
If you’d like to chuckle at how this classic work can be transformed, head over the to Cedar Lee Theatre in Cleveland Heights for a one-night-only showing of The MeshugaNutcracker! — The Chanukah Musical. Accompanied by a Klezmer-style rendition of the familiar Tchaikovsky music, it tells the story of a fictional town of fools called Chelm, where they celebrate Chanukah with dancing dreidels, singing sufganiot (jelly donuts) and special guest stars.
Tickets are $15.
