About The MeshugaNutcracker!

There’s a new holiday musical heading to Los Angeles this year and although the tunes might be familiar, you’ve never seen a Nutcracker like this! “The MeshugaNutcracker!” is a full-length musical comedy that celebrates Chanukah with an invigorating, Klezmer-ized orchestration of Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite" (now with original lyrics!) and scenes and songs that will truly get you in the holiday spirit. Add in dancing dreidels, leaping latkes, and a cast of eight charmingly clever characters and you have the perfect recipe for a holiday outing. The Los Angeles Times calls the show, “Captivating…lovingly loopy...when Tchaikovsky's melodies meet Chanukah, a wacky musical results!”
