McMorrow, T. E.

This musical reimagining of the beloved classic Nutcracker story is set in New York City at the height of the Harlem Renaissance, at a glittering holiday party where one little girl finds her voice as a musician thanks to her enchanting adventures with a magical toy.

The whimsy and beauty of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s classic story, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, has fascinated readers and audiences for more than two hundred years. The music of Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet is forever linked to the story in our minds—but another kind of music sets the beat for this imaginative retelling. Set in New York City during the height of the Harlem Renaissance, this jazz-inspired reinvention of The Nutcracker is a worthy tribute to the dreamlike wonder and magic of the Christmas season.
