    The Hip Hop Nutcracker resets Tchaikovsky’s classic score to explosive hip-hop choreography courtesy of Jennifer Weber. A dozen all-star dancers – plus a DJ, a violinist, and awesome digital scenery – bring the traditional Nutcracker story to new life, but with a distinctly urban twist. This evening-length show celebrates love, community and the magic of the holiday season. “ Hip Hop Nutcracker brings a generous dose of contemporary spirit, sure to heat up even the most restless and wintry of souls,” raves The New York Times . “It turns The Nutcracker on its head, in the coolest possible way,” says CBS. “If you’re more into break-dancing than ballet, but still love Tchaikovsky, this is the Nutcracker for you.” Last year, NJPAC’s production of The Hip Hop Nutcracker completed its third national tour, spread out across 29 U.S. cities, earning acclaim from critics and audiences coast to coast. Don’t miss this chance to treat the entire family to a new holiday tradition – right in your own backyard!
