One part variety show, one part fairy tale, and an altogether new spin on the holiday classic featuring the best of Chicago's late-night entertainment. A twist on the original ballet and a one-night only event highlighting the world of burlesque, boylesque, drag, magic, sword balancing, ballet and more, as the audience follows Clara and her Buttcracker from a boring-AF Christmas party on a wild, exotic, hallucinogenic trip to the Land of the Sweets, orchestrated by the Magician Drosselmeyer.
