The first Nutcracker performance of the season, Urban Nutcracker takes place on Atlanta’s own Sweet Auburn Avenue in the 1940’s and opens the weekend before Thanksgiving. Enjoy the soulful celebration, the majestic journey, the whimsical and mysterious characters such as the Reggae Ragdolls, the sultry Arabian dance, the spins and leaps of the Black Russian, Mother Spice and her tumbling Spice Drops, the bubbly Coca Cola Pas de Six, and the elegant Brown Sugar and her Chocolatier. Urban Nutcracker is to the Nutcracker as what The Wiz is to the Wizard of Oz.
