Nut/Cracked is a comic/subversive, neo-vaudeville version of The Nutcracker. Its 22 sections begin with a mix of popular, jazz and novelty versions of the score and progress to the traditional orchestral suite. A journey into innocence through sustained fantasy, Nut/Cracked incorporates an enterprising mix of tap, ballet, contemporary, disco and even toe tap. By the end of the show the cast has danced their way to a new kind of childhood replete with a thumb-sucking fantasia to the Grand Pas de Deux. In addition to The Bang Group, each show features a different group of teenage guest artists from dance schools throughout New York City.
