Ready or not, the holidays are here, and with them the usual opportunities to "get lit" have arrived: tree lighting ceremonies, ugly Xmas sweater soirees, etc. The Nutcracker ballet remains a popular, traditional outing for the whole family too, but a new show opening in Hollywood promises to add some contemporary appeal to the seasonal staple. The Hip-Hop Nutcracker brings the classic tale of Clara and her favorite toy-come-to-life to modern times, remixing Tchaikovsky's fantastical music with a funky flair that incorporates kickin' choreography (by award-winning director-choreographer Jennifer Weber) and costumes, rhythmic vibes and wondrous word flow. With none other than hip-hop founding father Kurtis Blow ("The Breaks") opening the show with a short set of rap classics, it'll be a jolly joint indeed.
