Next weekend, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center welcomes The Hip Hop Nutcracker for a limited, one-night engagement on November 29 at 7:30pm. Advertised as “a holiday mashup for the whole family,” the piece features twelve dancers, a DJ, a violinist, and a “hip hop founding father,” MC Kurtis Blow.

About Hip Hop Nutcracker
Just like the original, in The Hip Hop Nutcracker, Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince go on a dream adventure battling a gang of mice, visiting the land of sweets and learning the lessons of the holiday season. Innovative digital graffiti and visuals transform the landscape of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s beloved story from traditional 19th Century Germany to the vibrant, diverse sights and sounds of contemporary New York City.
