You've never seen a Nutcracker like The MeshugaNutcracker!, a full-length musical comedy that combines an invigorating, Klezmer-ized orchestration of Tchaikovsky's classic score with clever tales celebrating the miracle of Chanukah. Full of dancing dreidels, leaping latkes and eight charming Chelmniks (citizens of Chelm, the fictional town of fools), it's a delightful holiday mash-up that the Los Angeles Times called "captivating" and "lovingly loopy." Don't miss the season's oy-ful musical event when The MeshugaNutcracker! takes the stage of the Gindi Auditorium at the American Jewish University. Performances falling on the eight nights of Chanukah will include the lighting of a life-size human menorah, the singing of the Chanukah blessings, and a sing-along of Chanukah songs. You might also check out the New Year's Eve show, where you'll get to join the cast for a meet and greet after the performance and enjoy sparkling cider, desserts, and a near-to-midnight toast.
The production runs 2 hours including a 15 minute intermission.
Recommended for children ages six and older.
