This witty, gender-bending version of The Nutcracker keeps Tchaikovsky’s original 1890s score but transports the setting to the swinging 70s inspired by the comic book art of Charles Burns, with raucous parties, dancing G.I. Joes, whimsical costumes and Mark Morris’ lyrical modern dance choreography. Funny and moving and unlike any other Nutcracker.
