The Bang Group presents Nut/Cracked
Sat, Dec 6, 2014 @ 8pm; Sun, Dec 7, 2014 @ 3pm
It’s The Nutcracker, but definitely not as we know it. The Bang Group has taken apart every little kid’s favorite Christmas show and put it back together in a totally surprising, mind-bending new way. Mixing Tchaikovsky’s original score with music by Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and others, the company turns the sugar-coated ballet into a percussive piece of dance theatre. Nothing is sacred as Nut/Cracked twists and melds various dance traditions into an ode to American eclecticism which honors the power of the human urge to dance while riding Tchaikovsky’s voluptuous waves of rhythm. A co-presentation by the Emelin Theatre and Larchmont-Mamaroneck Community Counseling Center.

The Count Basie Orchestra has won every respected jazz poll in the world at least once, garnered 18 Grammy Awards, performed for royalty and appeared in movies and television shows and at every major jazz festival and concert hall in the world.

Pepper, and Let lt Be/Abbey Road. It’s not just uncanny mimicry that makes this show so popular; it’s that the wit and charm of the performers are truly reminiscent of the Fab Four.
