NYC to crack the Christmas nut

December 24, 2012 by  

For anybody tired of seeing that same old holiday ‘Nutcracker’, perhaps now could be the time to see ‘NutCracked’, the Bang Group’s satirical, neo-vaudville take on the Balanchine classic.

The performance combines elements of tap, contemporary, toe tap, disco, and, of course, traditional ballet. It also features a variety of takes on the traditional musical score in unlikely genres like pop, jazz, and novelty.

NutCracked is being held at New York Live Arts in Manhattan from December 20 to December 22 and this year’s performance marks the tenth anniversary for the show. For anyone who has not seen it already, it might be time to get in on this new tradition.

Even though it is in its tenth year, the producers of NutCracked will want to draw in as many audience members as possible for each performance. To this end, they may turn to print companies to create promotional material for them. There will be a large number of tourists in New York City for the holiday season and the show will have to compete with a lot of other activities going on, but people handing out flyers to the large crowds around the typical tourist areas may be able to draw in some out of town spectators.

People who live in the outer boroughs may also be unaware of the performance. Having workers hand out and distribute flyers in neighborhoods like Williamsburg, Astoria, or Long Island City would alert even more New Yorkers to this event, drawing in new crowds or reminding people who have seen it before that they may want to see it again.
