  The Buttcracker, A Nutcracker Burlesque at The Den Theatre

The Buttcracker, A Nutcracker Burlesque

The Den Theatre
1329-1333 N. Milwaukee Chicago

The best of Chicago's nightlife entertainment return for year four of the subversive and sexy alternative re-telling of the holiday classic. Clara is the office admin of Corporate Limited, INC., an office full of stuffy attitudes and a prude sense of humor. When her boss makes her plan the office holiday party, she hires Drosselmeyer, a burlesque drag star who shocks the office right out of their pants. Her none-too-pleased boss fires Clara, but Drosselmeyer has a few tricks up their sleeve, and whisks Clara away on a hallucinogenic trip down the rabbit hole to the magical Land of the Sweets. There she meets her life-size confections soldier, The Buttcracker, battles the Rat King and saves the day, all to learn with the help of the Sugar Bum Fairy that there is a place for those who play outside the box. One part ballet, one part parody, highlighting the world of Chicago's burlesque and variety scene. It's the holiday show you don't want to miss!
