About this show

A crazy, fun-filled musical celebrating the miracle of the oil and the heroes that made it happen, The Meshuga Nutcracker! features original lyrics set to the music of Tchaikovsky, which is played in unique Klezmer/Broadway fusion style. The citizens of Chelm (according to Jewish legend, a "town of fools"), gather once a year to perform their Chanukah festival, each telling a tale - in delightfully foolish Chelm style - that celebrates and honors the triumphs of Chanukah heroes from the time of the Maccabees through modern day.
