About this show

The ButtCracker is a comical, parody, pseudo musical "danc-ical" play set in modern day New York City, loosely spoofing not only the story of the Nutcracker ballet but also all of the popular dance/movies/television shows spanning the last few decades. Juxtaposing the themes of Footloose, Dirty Dancing, Fame, Flashdance, and many others, the plot creates the antics of "Crashdance," "Prancing with the Stars," "Cutloose," "Lord of the Pants," and "Saturday Night Beaver," in an uproarious journey including men in tights and Tutu's, dueling ballerinas, and disco fever gone awry. This show leaves you wondering, WAS it just a dream or did something "funny" happen on the way to the ballet?
