The Buttcracker: A Nutcracker Burlesque subverts classic holiday ballet to promote diversity of body, gender expression, sexuality and race. The show uses the platform of parody to encourage audiences to imagine a more inclusive world, redefining the art of teasing through an alternative approach to burlesque. This performance would not be possible without the generous support of individuals and companies who understand the value of having alternative adult entertainment this holiday season, as well as supporting our mission to subvert public expectations of the look and feel of live entertainment.
