The Nutcracker and I, which is described as “madcap musical comedy spoof of Tchaikovsky’s classic,” was conceived and written by Tony-honored lyricist Gerard Alessandrini (Forbidden Broadway) and Emmy winner Peter Brash with music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky from the classic ballet.
The musical is described as such: “At a chaotic dress rehearsal for a local production of The Nutcracker Ballet, the young leading lady has an unfortunate accident with a growing Christmas tree — breaking her leg. When the pain killers kick in, she’s off on a wild adventure in ‘Snow Globe City’ with a life-sized Nutcracker and the Sugar Rush Fairy!”
