A re-imagined holiday classic, The Brooklyn Nutcracker fuses ballet, hip-hop and a myriad of world dance genres to create a new tradition for today’s audience. The Brooklyn Nutcracker transforms familiar Nutcracker characters and scenes to represent the diverse traditions and vibrant culture of melting pot Brooklyn. Starting from the point of view of old Dutch Brooklyn and leading to the iconic Flatbush Avenue, the production is fresh and full of virtuosity—in essence, a moving Christmas card to the borough Brooklyn Ballet calls home.
Ticket prices start at $25
All opening night tickets include champagne (or sparkling cider) toast at intermission. Dinner + performance tickets include dinner at The Norm at Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Museum
Coming out to your mom can be difficult. Or she can be so supportive you end up in the emergency room (seriously)! In Mama Said I'd Be Gay Like This, multiple The Moth StorySLAM winner Danny Artese tells true stories to explore his theory that his mother wanted him to be gay, citing evidence from inappropriate Halloween costumes to video of Britney Spears talent show routines. Bring your dancing shoes and celebrate love, support, and visibility!
All artist proceeds will be donated to The Ali Forney Center.
Presented as part of The Tank's SoloWeek in residence at Standard Toykraft.
