Edelen, Mitchell Hébert, Will Gartshore, Vincent Kempski, Lawrence Redmond, Erin Weaver, and Lauren Williams

This captivating new musical reinvents E.T.A. Hoffman’s original tale, turning it into a brand new seasonal classic. Weaving together spellbinding spectacle, riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, and a delightful original score, Clara’s crusade to save her family (with the assistance of a remarkable nutcracker) comes alive with dazzling theatricality. This contemporary retelling is a heartwarming, hilarious story of magic and hope that’s as poignant and touching as it is hilarious, tuneful, and fun. Joe Calarco (Signature’s Gypsy) directs the D.C. area premiere of a Chicago holiday favorite hailed as "moving, inclusive, and wholly original" by the Chicago Tribune. With Evan Casey, Sherri L. Edelen, Mitchell Hébert, Will Gartshore, Vincent Kempski, Lawrence Redmond, Erin Weaver, and Lauren Williams
